10 cool loading animated gif

The use of loading animated gif is becoming very common in web design as they provide information about the processing time. Some might even be a source of entertainment if you designed them correctly. To get you started in coming out with cool loading gif, here are some example that I have encountered. Most of these loading gif are animated and do not recycle the typical loading bar or timer kind of design.

Have fun!

I love this particular loading gif. It is so fun to look at that you can spend ages looking at it and no noticed the loading time of your website or app. Very very cool.


#2: Stylish loading gif

This is not as cute as the loading cat above but it is very stylish and looks very different from what you normally see. It proves that a rotating loading gif need not always be so boring.


#3: Shape changing loading gif

The use of a shopping bag is a great idea that every ecommerce store can use for its loading gif. It is simple and reenforces what the website does very well.  (sorry, no link again)
