At the heart of SVGator is a team that is, and always will be, passionate about designing and producing unique, high-quality, and unforgettable animations.
We believe that all designers and developers should have a tool to turn to when they want to bring stories, brands, illustrations, icons, and logos to life.
Our mission is to encourage the extensive use of SVG animations on the web.
One day back in 2017, we were close to releasing a new website design for a completely different service, when we realized three things. First, we should completely forget about using PNG and GIF on a website. Second, animating SVG is a time-consuming and technical task for most designers. Third, having our front-end developers work with our designers to create animations isn’t the most efficient way to use our resources.
In fact, we just needed a quick solution that would allow our designers to animate SVG without any coding skills, using a single animated SVG file that could be easily added to a website. We thought it would be amazing to have a tool for that online.
SVGator was released on October 12, 2017. The immense enthusiasm from the designer community has encouraged us to continue our work ever since.
The beginning of our journey
Our release was followed by five updates in 2018. It was a year full of testing, researching, and optimising. We reached 30,000 users in April 2018 and steadily grew each month.
Given the lightning-fast advancement of digital technology and the nature of SVG animations, we are confident in saying that SVGator is just at the beginning of its journey. Simplifying the way designers and developers animate SVG is just the first step on an endless path of amazing opportunities.
