Nice catch. This was deliberately designed this way though. It felt more inconsistent to have the bubble on the right. It was important to me that similar interactions always originate from the same space.
I used animation to establish the relationship and connectedness you’re mentioning.
Often times observing one static state within a product journey is not enough. I feel like when one state seamlessly flows into another, it can create a more holistic and clearer message of the intention of a design.
