Project Description


Looking to have an animated logo ident created. 8 seconds minimum, 15 seconds maximum, but around 10 seconds would be great. This will be made in After Effects.

The thing is, I want this to be a template rather than a video, so that the logo can be replaced with different logos. The plan is to use this for my clients, and also sell it on VideoHive. If you have experience selling templates on VideoHive then that would be good, but it's not a deal breaker.

Take a look at the first page of the best sellers here:

Quality needs to be as good as the thirty templates on that page. I'm not looking for anybody to copy any of the designs... I want something unique, but it needs to be of a high quality, visually appealing, suitable for whatever style of logo the buyer uses. If it's just another basic 3D logo extrusion, then it won't get accepted! It should be clean, sylish, modern and relatively technically complex... in that it wouldn't be easier for me, or anybody else, to just make it themselves.

I made this one, which is very simple and didn't get accepted by VH as it wasn't unique enough, so it needs to be much better than this...

It needs to be better than those, or I'd just make it myself rather than hiring someone! I'm not that good with particles though, and I'm thinking something using Particular might be good, maybe some 3D effects, transformation etc etc. You have free reign to come up with the design.. as long as it's impressive!

I think the way to go when it comes to the process would be for you to come up with a few ideas, maybe some very rough mockups/sketches, I decide on which one we should go for (all this is only after I've awarded you the project - this isn't a contest!), you create it and then we have one or two rounds of revisions. I can always make any final tweaks myself after that.

Can be created in any version of After Effects, but let me know which version you use in your proposal. Project needs to be set up so anybody can just add their logo and then render it out, so it needs to be pretty self explanatory, and suitable for logos of varying shapes. Maybe one comp for horizontal style logos and one for square ones.

If you're using any plugins then they will need to be limited to Particular and Optical Flares... but will need to be pre-rendered as well so people can still use the template if they don't have them.

Needs to be created in 2K. No stock assets or templates can be used, needs to be entirely your own work so that I have full ownership and can sell it on VideoHive. No audio required.

If I could see some examples of After Effects idents/logo animations that you've created in the past, then that would be great. Not just templates you've customised.

I don't have a specific budget for this. Cheap is always better than expensive, but I appreciate this will involve a decent amount of work for a talented individual, so let me know what you think it will cost... break it to me gently!
