A video demonstrating a new set of animations for Ubuntu Touch has been posted online.

In the clip, Ubuntu designers showcase a range of visual effects for use in ‘core movements’ on Touch, including animations for switching between applications, unlocking the screen, and pressing buttons.

Ubuntu’s Designers are calling the motion theme ‘Paper’, with the visuals created around the idea of evoking ‘…the theme of paper wherever possible.’ Eschewing traditional papery-effects like curls and folds, the team have opted for a more ‘suggestive’ approach using layers and stacking.

The video also shows a number of application designs using the new ‘Suru’ UI.

Earlier in the week Ubuntu designers also demoed a video of their new RSS reader concept called ‘Shorts‘.
