As for the transforming, I'm not entirely sure. The growing however, if you are intending to do geometric line base grows like the ones in the video, appears to be nothing more than an animated loft with some keyframed scaling and twisting.

For this you would just need to set up a path that you want the object to grow along and make a spline in the shape you want to be growing and extrude the shape along the path.

Transform is an animated array of geometry instances, either by shift-rotating or by using the symmetry modifier.

The grow looks like fractured geometry played backwards.
