Shopping is often about comparing products and learning the details prior to buying. Putting as much information on product pages as possible is the way to go.
Transitions & Animation :-
Transitions and animations can be added to various website components like links, navigation, and images to create a unique experience for users. They serve two purposes. Firstly, adding extra splash that defines the brand and also creates a tailored experience. Secondly, transitions and animations can call attention to important items on the page.

Micro-interactions are in in-things today. Tiny and simple details serve a single important but invisible feature. These functions for settings or adjusting a particular feature etc., contribute to the overall experience of using an app.
Design sprints :-
