Hey nice animation, what did you use to achieve it?
I have things to say, I hope is doesn’t make me a design douche
Ok so, in terms of motion design, you have all your animation set, now you need rythm, pace, rugosity… For the moment all your curves animate exactly at the same time, for the same duration, with the same easing mode. And you can alter that a bit to… “tell a story”. Yes I said it, and I admit I absolutely hate the kind of article you’ve linked. It’s usually rude, and full of bold statements. Why are people so angry at others, I’ll never understand So don’t listen to this guy and tell stories, even if it’s only on an animated logo.
So, the J, the S, the circle around, that’s what appears to me as the natural order. I would draw the J, then start the S when reached half or 2/3rd of the J, and start the circle when the S is half drawn or at 2/3rd. I would slow the speed of drawing the letters by 25% and let the speed of the disc drawing untouched. Most importantly, I would reverse the curve drawing of the J ans S for them to appear drawn manually. The clockwise circle drawing is perfect though.
That would make J then S then circle around. Like if you where drawing it by hand very wuickly, with overlapp of the gestures.
For the reverse animation, things can be speed up a bit, undrawing the J then after half, the S then after half, the circle, fastened to finish at the same time then the S or very shortly after.
Hope that makes sense to you It’s already nice as it is but it will look good with those irregularities. More organic, and this is what youre looking for when you do motion design: organic feelings.
