1. How to Make a Logo Animation

Step 1

Start everything off by putting in your team's information.

Over to the left, we can input both our team name and the city of origin—or a slogan or catchphrase.

Step 2

Next, let's choose our mascot by using this search bar located on the right.

There are hundreds of mascots and images to choose from, and to preview any animation, you can hover your mouse over the icon.

If at any time you want to see your logo in action, you can go ahead and click Preview Video! This will generate a full preview of your logo, as opposed to just a still or keyframe.

Step 3

Each logo will have different areas that we can customize.

To the right, you will see Background, Logo, and Accent. You can plug in your team colors, or just any colors you think might match well. 

Keeping with my team's frozen theme, I am going to choose a grey for the background, a very pale blue for the logo color, and an icy neon blue for my accent color here.

Step 4

Finally, we can wrap everything up by choosing our font faces!

I like Barbaro for my city's name; however, I want something a bit more edgy for my team name, so let's choose Amazdoom.

Now, hit Preview Video one last time to give everything one last look over. Make any final adjustments, and then hit Download!
