Animated Logos

In the body of a brand, a logo is like the heart that beats and keeps pumping the passion all across the business body. A professional logo design galvanizes other brand elements into action. As it sends the message of motion, the active energy radiates towards the audience and delivers the intended message. But in order to deliver an effective message, the business service logo needs to be designed perfectly and it must be capable of lucid communication.

Speaking of motion, logos can be either static or animated. Static logos are the ones that lay flat on a 2D plane. And you know the animated type; it keeps moving so our eyes keep track, if the types used in the moving logo are going to crash like waves or roll like a stone or may even pour like the rain. Animated logos or 3D logo designs are the complete game changers for brands in this digital era.

While static logos are limited strictly on the course of action, small businesses and startups are seeking the aid of graphic designers to have their startup business logos designed – and you know how a designer’s mind works. He tries to bring out the most intricate element in the most creative way possible, which is why he is deemed responsible for aligning the business goals and visions with the logo shapes, logo text, and logo colors used. And with that in mind, a dynamic logo add a creative edge to the business, especially if the business is going live on the web.

However, let’s not bore you with theory and give you the real deal. We’ve collected 17 animated logos used by small businesses and startups, which will make you scratch your head. Why? Check them out yourself.

Flakers is a Russian café that serves flakes with milk. What’s so new about that? The newness is actually the animated logo and, obviously, the promise to make your day a fresh start. It offers convenient and healthy breakfast options. The dairy logo, however, is simple, elegant, and powerful enough to create a strong impression of the café’s message. As you can see, the outlines of a bowl, a milk bottle, and a box come together as a symbol of the ingredients used for the breakfast. The unity of these forms conveys the idea of fast cooked homemade food. The milk cafe logo is minimalistic, basic, and flakes!

2. Samcom

When you see the transport logo from this company, you can see two red vans approaching towards each other from opposite directions. Then BOOM! The perspective changes and you zoom out to see that the two vans slide across and make a minimal ‘S’ logo. It’s an easy one so, you must’ve guessed by now. SAMCOM is a cargo company that transports cargo from Russia to Kazakhstan and vice versa, catering mainly to small businesses. The red company logo is modern and simple, is highly distinctive to the company’s work nature, and is a symbol of leadership among competitors.

3. Kokoc

Kokoc means ‘coconut’ in Russian, but this brand delivers a wide range of Korean cosmetics, which are known for their purity and natural approach. Korean secrets are becoming popular among European women and for that reason, this newly introduced chain store of Korean cosmetics, called KOKOC, has gained recognition for providing skin and hair care secrets to its clients. Since it’s all about perfection and natural beauty, the designers have employed the art of using the ‘Golden Ratio’, which makes the cosmetics logo look precise and to the point. And yes, that’s a coconut in the logo you see there!

Chop Chop, Man! I need to get to work fast! Drivers hear these words couple of times, especially when they’re stuck in a jammed street with cars honking in every direction. That is where Choppy comes along. No, it’s not the Uber service; it’s a ‘drive-with-a-pro-by-your-side’ service. Using Gilroy and Open Sans as ‘speedy fonts’ and a stylish color theme, the designers came up with the idea to represent the speed of this learning platform through the moving wheel logo. You should look at the car hire logo when it’s ‘going for a drive’!

6. Cine365 Films

11. Miss Fluffy

As the name indicates, Miss Fluffy is a fashion clothing studio that is known for delivering luxury and fur wear for modern ladies. The quality and patterns are highly exquisite and reflective of the studio’s unusual taste. Just like the name, the designers of the fashion design logo used a silhouette of ermine as a symbol of ‘fluffiness’, protected inside a shield, representing nobility and elegance. The complementing font has smooth curves, which supplement the shield logo composition. And let’s not forget the color; the ashen rose uplifts the feminineness of the overall logo.

12. Capsula

Yet another brand, Capsula is a unisex clothing brand for the modern youth. It focuses on the teens who are into hip-hop, punk, RnB and such music, love skateboarding and hoverbording, have a wardrobe full of sneakers and are always on the hype. As the animation plays, the clothing logo motions upwards in a slanting position, making the impression of the font displayed over a sleigh. The logo is simple, due to which youth with a sense of style come to visit the store and make their clothes fit in the minimalist style – which means clothing fitting a capsule.

13. Beautown

It doesn’t involve any of those, but it does include embroidered cats on clothes, peeking out of the pockets. Isn’t that adorable!? That sure is, that is why the company is planning to launch clothes with images of other animals. Just check how cute the cat looks when it peeks out of the pocket in the animated cat logo!
