See for example the Google Accounts log-in experience, where you move from 'Enter email' to 'Enter password' via a smooth dynamic transition with no page refresh


How can I speak to a front end designer about achieving this type of interaction? Is it just 'javascript'?

Too often I find developers turning UX specs for features like this into basic clunky page refreshes, and I want to have the language to speak to them about it



The discussion about the relationship between a designer and a developer tends to get really complicated when we talk about communication.

I have to make it clear that it is your responsibility as a designer to communicate how you want elements to behave so in this case you can create animations, prototypes or interaction guides that clearly shows how animations work and feel.

So the language you need designs.

Now, I know that in real life, your business managers might not give you the needed time for such things but you can have a video recording app and find examples in real life that you can show them when needed.
