What program should I use to make UI sprite animations for unity3D

We are creating a game with Unity engine. And we want to make UI buttons to animate when idle and on click. Which program should make the most sense to use when creating animations. Is it worth using Adobe After Effects or there a better and more optimization friendly software or methods?

As an e.g. outer circles would rotate around the play button. Simple animation, nothing too complicated.

P.S. Icons will be created using illustrator
