In my experience, the hardest part of building a site that has well written animations is actually in the knowledge and communication between designers and engineers. Designers need to understand what palette and toolkit we have to work with to be able to come up with interactions and metaphors that can feel smooth to the user. Engineers need to know how to implement specific ideas and debug what the browser is doing when running their animations.
