25 Perfectly Looped & Satisfying GIFs

On 1st March 2021, I undertook a personal project to create 50 icons for 50 days. Undertaking such a project wasn't hard, but following through every single day was a challenge.


Especially when there are commercial projects running parallel. There were days when something just didn't feel right after 2 hours of work, & having to start over.


That doesn't sound easy or fun. So why did I do this to myself when no one asked for it? Why a self imposed deadline on a personal project?


The answer is simple, I've always wanted to create an animated icon set & I knew I'll never do it unless I force myself into it. As an brand identity designer, one of my main focus is to gather information & simplify it for easier consumption. Icon design is a natural extension of this: How can a few simple shapes convey complex ideas?


This project not just helped me improve my practise & my skills but also pushed me to my limits. And now that it's finally over, here are the best 25 out of the 50 icons:
