I recently visited an interaction design agency’s website. The navigation and links were riddled with CSS transitions and transformations. Ok, you’re an interaction design studio, I get it. However, it felt like their intentions were misguided. They weren’t designing “innovative” interactions, they were designing feedback mechanisms. Interaction often gets mistaken for feedback, which is only an aspect of interaction. When a designer gets wrapped up in feedback without thinking of interaction from a systems perspective, they are doing nothing more than making flashy hover states. But most importantly…think of the poor lte IE 9 users!
