So let’s move on to a bucket load of inspiration! Here’s a beautiful collection of some brilliant SVG animations you wouldn’t believe were possible to create.
This is by far one of the most creative and spectacular SVG animations I have seen on Codepen. Penned by jjperezaguinaga, this animation proves that the wonders a simple “rotating effect” using HTML and CSS can do.
This is super-cute HTML and CSS3 only SVG animation. Penned by cihadturhan, the animation plays in a loop with strange looking characters walking continuously. The legs have been animated with the help of SVG, while the rest uses mostly CSS3.
This cool animation was penned by Max. He used HTML and CSS to allow an Xbox One to appear as a sketch by being drawn first, and then transform into a realistic image of an Xbox One. You can tweak it around if you like, but for an Xbox lover, it’s pretty neat!
Need a tweak to the border? Check out this SVG animation by Zach Saucier. I’ve seen plenty of those underlines that swipe a color right to left on hover, but I hadn’t yet seen one that transforms into a border. This one was created using HTML and CSS.
Here’s a great animation that should keep your visitors busy while your website loads. Although this animation looks complicated, it really isn’t! All it uses is a little bit of HTML and CSS. The result, however, is far more fascinating. Leela managed to pen this cute animation that “timelessly” displays an hourglass loading and turning over insides a circle. Perfect for long load times!
This brilliant pen shows what SVG can do with simple tricks. Coded by Jorge Aznar, this cute animation transforms, rotates, and re-colors simple shapes. The concept is a nice one which you can use on any graphic with disparate elements. For example, it could work well for logos, icons, or other vector graphics. The pen uses mostly HTML and a little bit of CSS.
This coder must be huge fan of the Breaking Bad because he has designed a fairly accurate and genuinely spectacular animation for the title. Who says rotations, hover effects, and line drawing is all SVG can do? Tim Pietrusky proves that there’s more to SVG animation with the “smoke effect” accompanied by the Breaking Bad movie title. It includes an audio too!
This is a cute and simple animation by Gabriel that uses veloicty.js along with CSS.
