Logo Animation Services

Making your logo move with Flash, HTML5, GIF or Video

Loading

As part of our logo design and brand development services, our studio has been animating logos for almost 20 years and have worked with Flash since its introduction (first as Future Splash, then as Macromedia then Adobe.) This revolutionary animation software allowed our designers to take logo logo-lick-animationpresentation to a new level, and combining it with our graphic design services was a natural. Over the years we’ve pushed the envelope, turning blase presentations into attention grabbing extravaganzas. Think of your new logo spinning, flying and forming from a series of disparate shapes into its completed form. Imagine that animation greeting your web site visitors, or appearing on all your office monitors. That, in a nutshell, would be an animated Logo Lick. And like all our design services – getting your logo animated by our studio is simple. Simply submit your project, our animators will get to work, and you’ll be able to login to our Factory Floor client area to see the work as it progresses.

Sound easy? It is.

We offer two levels of logo animation services:

What’s included with our Logo Lick (basic) animation services:

spinning-logo-animation✓ Exclusive & PRIVATE Factory Floor client page for your project.

✓ 5 Business Day delivery of initial animation after approval of story boards and/or client – animator consultation. Story boards or roughed-in animations are generally delivered to client within one (1) week of project submission.

✓ Animation and development of your Logo Lick. As animation revisions can be more time-consuming than standard design services, revision turnarounds are approximate. All the versions of your Logo Lick will be previewed on our Factory Floor. You may require Flash to be installed in your browser (if you can view ANY Flash animations in your internet browser, you already have the player installed.) HTML5, video and GIF animations do not require this plugin.

✓ 2 revision rounds of your animation.

Deliverables:

✓ Delivery of editable Flash source file(s) Requires Adobe Flash to edit. File will also contain outlined fonts (for system compatibility) as well as any additional movie assets such as motion blur images, photographs, etc. Any stock photography used in your animation may be subject to separate licensing terms and conditions.

✓ Delivery of playable Flash animation file (.SWF) Will play in any browser with Flash player installed as well as locally on your computer.

✓ HTML5 Document(s): This source code is the HTML that allows your animation to run without any plugin and is Flash-restricted device friendly (some Apple mobile devices will not play native Flash movies.) May require slight modification to your website.

✓ Size-restricted GIF animation. This file does not require any special plugins or utilities for playback. This animation can loop continuously, play once or play for a limited number of rotations.

✓ Copyright transfer and ownership documentation. (if applicable). Transfer of ownership rights to logo artwork, icon and/or illustration applies only to finalized design.

What’s included with our Advanced Animation services:

vector-gif-animation✓ Exclusive & PRIVATE Factory Floor client page for your project.

✓ 5 Business Day delivery of initial animation after approval of story boards and/or client – animator consultation. Story boards or roughed-in animations are generally delivered to client within one (1) week of project submission.

✓ Development of your Advanced Animation. As animation revisions can be more time-consuming than standard design services, revision turnarounds are approximate. All the versions of your Advanced Animation will be previewed on our Factory Floor. You may require Flash to be installed in your browser (if you can view ANY Flash animations in your internet browser, you already have the player installed.) HTML5, video and GIF animations do not require this plugin.

✓ Multiple Edit Rounds on working animation timeline. Advanced flash techniques available – 3D rendering and motion (spinning logos), motion blurs, interactive menus, text addition, buttons and images. Sound FX and/or music soundtrack also available (to give you an idea of what an Advanced Animation entails, you can view this extensive case study.) Custom music or sound FX can be ordered separately (additional charges may apply.) You can contact our client support, or consult with your animator for the most appropriate FX and techniques for your particular project.

✓ Standalone logo animation. As Advanced Animation files tend to be large, they are inappropriate for repeated use on a website (on a webpage header for example.) In that case, we will “extract” a standalone logo animation from the main project file that can be utilized in this manner. This standalone animation will be delivered as a separate set of files, as outlined below.

Deliverables:

✓ Delivery of editable Flash source file(s) Requires Adobe Flash to edit. File will also contain outlined fonts (for system compatibility) as well as any additional movie assets such as motion blur images, photographs, etc. Any stock photography used in your animation may be subject to separate licensing terms and conditions.

✓ Delivery of playable Flash animation files (.SWF) Will play in any browser with Flash player installed as well as locally on your computer.

✓ HTML5 Document(s): This source code is the HTML that allows your animation to run without any plugin and is Flash-restricted device friendly (some Apple mobile devices will not play native Flash movies.) May require slight modification to your website.

✓ Size-restricted GIF animation. This file does not require any special plugins or utilities for playback. This animation can loop continuously, play once or play for a limited number of rotations. GIF animations are not appropriate for more complex Advanced Animations, so we’ll include a “standalone” logo animation that is.

✓ Copyright transfer and ownership documentation (if applicable.) Transfer of ownership rights to customized artwork, icon and/or illustrations applies only to finalized design. Other non-selected ‘work product’ remains the copyright and property of The Logo Factory Inc. unless otherwise released in writing.

Advanced Animation or Logo Lick?

Does your project qualify for a Logo Lick treatment, or does it require the bells and whistles of an Advanced Animation? That all depends on a number of factors:

The complexity of your logo: If your logo is extremely complex or features photo blends, we may have to perform some pre-production work in order to get your logo animation ‘ready’, and
The complexity of your planned animation: For examples of Logo Lick and Advanced Animations, see examples of each in our portfolio.

How our logo animation service works.

cube-250pxQuite simply really. You subject a project brief, telling us what kind of logo animation you have in mind and how you wish to use it. Or you can leave it up to our designers to come up with their own concepts and theme. Either way, we’ll send you a working movie which will help you visualize what we have in mind. We’ll show you our work on the Factory Floor, you tell us what you’d like to see changed and once your animation is approved, we can render your Flash .SWF files at a web-friendly resolution. We can convert it to HTML5 for mobile device playback (this may require some code being added to your site.) We can render the logo into a GIF animation (some file size caveats on complex animations.) You can then download off our site and we’ll show you how to install on your site (if required.)

What we need to begin your animation project

In order to develop a Logo Lick or Advanced animation, we require access to your logo in the correct vector based file formats (EPS or Adobe Illustrator format – NOT extruded or trimmed.) If you are a TLF client, all our logo design packages include these formats, so we’ll already have the necessary assets on hand. If you already have a logo, but only have bitmap versions available, The Logo Factory will first have to repair your artwork.

Please note – Logo Repair services are not included with animation.
