Simple SVG animation examples
You do not necessarily need a lot of time and effort to create some nice animated elements to spice up your website or app. These simple SVG CSS animation examples show that subtle movements and basic animators do a great job of adding a competitive edge to your design.
SVG CSS animation examples
If we’re talking about simple animations, CSS is the easiest way to get something moving on the screen. It is a good choice because it is perfect for simple, "one-shot" UI elements like a navigation bar, a loader, or a toggle button. Have a look at these SVG CSS animation examples to get an idea of what you can create when you want to choose this export option.
SVG logo animation examples
Logos are supposed to be memorable, and animating them is an effective way to achieve this. A common animation effect is the self-drawing line, ideal for logotypes. Changing colors, size, or position is quite easy to do, but if you want to go the extra mile, you can try an advanced animator like morphing.

SVG loader animation examples
Entertain users with creative CSS loaders while they are waiting for the page to load. This way, you can ensure that they will stay until server operations finish processing. Turn your logo into a cool preloader, tell a story, or create an abstract spinner — the choice is yours. If you choose SVG, you can rest assured that it will be small in file size and really easy to create.
SVG icon animation examples
We just love clever micro-animations that bring the whole user experience to a new level. It’s really hard to choose the best SVG icon animation examples, but below you can find a few of our favorites. The best part is that you have full control over the animations, so you can set what happens on load, on click, on hover, and on mouse out.
Hamburger menus examples
One tiny navigational element hides endless possibilities for graphic designers. It can be used not only for mobile apps, but also for the web if you want to save. Check out these simple SVG animation examples themed around various types of food. After all, who said that the menu can only be a hamburger? 🤔
Animated buttons examples
Animated buttons are eye candy and the most important CTA elements of the page at the same time. You can trigger movement on hover or on click; a change in color and shape emphasizes the action taken and keeps engagement at its highest. It can significantly increase the number of clicks and encourage users to explore the site further.
Animated toggle buttons examples
A custom switch/toggle button can make the difference when it comes to microinteractions and interface animation. Visual feedback acknowledges a certain action so that users can be sure that they have reached the desired action or goal.
SVG line animation examples
The handwriting, self-drawing, and self-erasing effects are really cool ways to animate text while bringing line art to the next level. Path animation examples might seem complicated at first glance, but if you’re using SVGator, you can simply create it by controlling the Offset and Dashes properties. You can also create an animation of dotted and dashed lines. Find a few of the best SVG line or path animation examples created in SVGator below:
SVG text animation examples
A stylized animated header in the hero section will definitely add some magic to your design and convey an impactful message. Increase the retention rate of your audience with nice and catchy text animations like in the examples below.
Animated characters examples
Creating and animating cute cartoon characters is so much fun! Character animation would be a real challenge with coding, but SVGator has made it super easy and time-efficient. A mascot can be used all over your app, website, and social media to entertain users, evoke feelings, or explain processes. In the last few years at SVGator, it has become a tradition to create a nice animated character for the Chinese new year.
Morph animation examples
Creating smooth shape animations is a piece of cake in SVGator. You can easily convert an element into a path and then add the Morph animator to the timeline. Select the Node tool to change the points’ position on a path, adjust timing, and you’re done.
Programmatic control over your animations
If you would like to dive deeper into custom interactive animations, SVGator’s JS API lets you have event-driven control of your SVG files. You can read more about this option here and check out the live demo.
We hope you found these SVG animation examples interesting and inspiring. We strongly encourage the extensive use of SVG animations on websites and in apps, due to their many advantages and benefits.
