4 Tips for Logo Animation Design
Keep these tips in mind while you work on customizing your logo animation.
1. Keep Your Logo Reveal On Brand
This may seem obvious, but it's a helpful tip to remember. Your brand personality should be reflected in your logo animation. If your brand is known for being serious or quirky, choose animations that match that feeling. This simple Logo Animation is a great example of a template that allows you to add your brand presence easily.
2. Think About Context
Similar to the first tip, it's important to think about where your logo animation will be seen. Is it before a new product or service reveal? Will it be used to open or close your video? Different occasions call for different styles of logo animations.
3. Make it Dynamic
Dynamic logo animation reveals are instant attention-grabbers. Energetic reveals catch the eyes of your audience and help keep your brand memorable. There are hundreds of great premium animations that offer different styles of dynamic movement, so they're easy to find. Dynamic Particles Logo Reveal is an excellent example of kinetic logo animations.
4. Mind the Length
While your logo animation needs to be appealing, it shouldn't take over your content. That's why it's important to keep an eye on the length of your reveal. This should scale depending on the length of your videos. Shoot for five seconds or less for videos under a minute, and up to ten seconds for videos that are a few minutes long.
