Animated Icons

Icons are small but vital for the efficiency rate of any website or application. They look simple but take loads of time and effort to feel that way. They have the power to do anything with a user: help, support, engage, encourage, clarify, simplify or vise versa confuse, annoy, disorient and so on and so forth. Icons play an important communicative role and they have no language barriers.
