Bring your brand story to life

It’s well-known that our eyes are drawn to visuals and even more so to those in motion. Add another layer to your brand storytelling by creating an animated version of your brand logo. You can better convey what your brand stands for through a moving logo and bring excitement to an otherwise static medium. Use an exciting motion style to represent a brand that’s on the move. Or use a sleek animation to convey a more modern and corporate feel. Even soft, subtle movements can speak volumes about your brand.

With Canva, creating a logo animation is easy, thanks to an amazingly simple editor. Not only is it effortless to use, even for design newbies, it’s also fun! Just drag, drop, and click your way around our design tool. And, with a library filled with free templates you can draw inspiration from, you won’t need to start from a daunting blank page. Simply pick a template and customize it to perfection by switching up colors, fonts, and millions of graphic and visual elements at your fingertips.

How to animate a logo

  1. Start with Canva
    First, open Canva and go to “Animated Logos” for a library of professionally designed templates to draw inspiration from and customize.
  2. Select the right animated logo style to fit your brand
    Second, choose from any professionally designed animated logo templates that are closest to the look and feel you’re going for. All of these templates are fully customizable. You can also start with a blank design from scratch. It can be as simple or as complex as you like!
  3. Customize your animated logo
    Customize your logo animation by changing the video background, design colors, font styles, font size, and text. Choose what kind of effect you want. You can animate elements and text separately or set the entire design as a whole into motion.
  4. Download as an MP4 video or GIF file
    Once you’re happy with your logo animation, save and download it as a high-resolution MP4 video or GIF file. With video files, you can include audio, while a GIF file will give you a shorter, more compressed clip with no sound.
  5. Add it to your various visual branding media
    Finally, make sure to create recall and recognition for your brand by using your new animated logo in various visual media such as your website, your social media accounts, and your different advertising and promo videos.
