Sometimes you take it upon yourself to animate a logo you’ve just created for a client. Sometimes a client asks you to make their already-existing logo move. And sometimes you just feel like animating a well-known logo—because the only thing better than a well-crafted logo is a well-crafted logo that moves, right?
At least once a year the HOW team likes to take a look at the latest animated logo design being churned out by firms and freelancers around the world. With today being International Animation Day, what better way to celebrate than to round up some of the best we can find for your viewing pleasure?
So sit back, relax and enjoy these animated logos—and don’t be surprised if you walk away inspired to make your own logo design work move.
