You’ve probably noticed the subtly animated logo Fubiz released with their recently launched website redesign, or the hidden Easter egg within the new CSS-Tricks logo, or even the non-looping animated logo on David Stanfield’s site. Typically, animated logos have been used mainly in videos, but most recently, we’re seeing these subtly and beautifully animated logos being used highly effectively on websites.
Whether displayed as an animated GIF or created using CSS & SVG, animated logos have the uncanny power to draw your attention to the brand, rendering it highly memorable. And also, using motion designer David Stanfield’s logo as an example gives you a unique means for showcasing your design skills, with some added personality, towards your target readership or potential client.
While not widely used at the moment, we have managed to find a small collection of subtly animated logos that will hopefully inspire you to go and create your own. Of course, we’ll start with the fantastic Fubiz logo first…
