Create with After Effects Logo Templates

Revealing your logo to a new—or existing—audience is a big moment. As a representation of everything your brand stands for, there’s a lot to communicate in a short amount of time.

One of the best ways to showcase your branding in style is with an After Effects logo template. Animated logo reveals or ‘stings’ are exciting and dynamic; they convey your brand message, build instant recognition and ensure your branding sticks.

If you want to create a logo reveal using After Effects templates, Envato Elements has plenty of pre-made After Effects logo templates to choose from, all available with an unlimited creative subscription.

What Are Logo Templates?

After Effects logo templates are pre-animated motion graphics, designed to present your logo with impact. Also known as ‘logo reveal templates’, these project files are designed by professionals to add visual interest and excitement to your branding. 

Logo reveal templates bring your logo to life as animations and ensure you capture the attention of your viewers from the very first second. And the best part? They’re quick and easy to use—simply download a template of your choice, tailor it with your logo, colors, and any moving footage, and hit render. No more spending unnecessary hours building motion graphics from scratch in After Effects.

Logos reveals, or ‘stings’, are often used to introduce your video, giving your audience the first look at your brand or providing context around what’s to come. And, you can reinforce familiarity or brand recall with a consistent intro that accurately reflects your business or content.

Logo Template FAQs

After Effects logo templates can be used to add impact and excitement to your branding. Simply import your template of choice into After Effects and replace the placeholder logo with your own. Customize any text, animations, or colors and hit render.

Once you’ve imported your logo template into After Effects, go to the Timeline panel and find the logo layer—it’s generally titled something like “Your Logo Here”. Double click on this layer to edit, then drag and drop your logo into the panel. Finally, turn off the placeholder logo.

Before you animate your logo in After Effects, you need to establish what type of animation you want to achieve—for example, expanding, rotating, or morphing. Then, import your logo file into After Effects, bring up the Timeline panel to view and manage layers, and edit the position, scale, rotation, and opacity of your logo elements to create animations.

If you’re looking for a specific animation or want to cut down on production time, logo templates are a great resource.
