A better set of animated icons
As a web designer, developer, and animator for the past 12 years, I’m always looking for ways to make my work more engaging. One of the best ways is through motion and animation. But adding animation to a website is not always easy:
- SVG animations can take dozens, even hundreds, of lines of code to implement.
- Video often comes with a large file size, and doesn’t automatically play on mobile devices, requiring the user to interact before they see any motion.
- Flash and Silverlight animations require third-party plugins, and they’re not supported by some smartphones.
That’s why I developed Animaticons as a set of high-resolution animated GIFs that you can customize.
Animated GIFs are:
- Small in file size.
- Compatible with all major browsers, emails, and smartphones.
- Play automatically without user interaction.
- Don’t require any special plugins or libraries.
I hope you enjoy the icons and find creative ways to use them in your projects. There are more icons coming in the future. Check back for updates or sign up to get notified when new icons are released.
