Even though we designed for micro-interactions to be included in development, due to time constraints, interactions and animations were downscoped from a project. Our developers were mostly back-end focused and were unsure how to implement them, so provided high effort estimates on developing micro-interactions.
Proof of Concept

The goal was to create a quick POC using CSS that the team could use directly in development to make this quick enhancement.
