Project Description

Create your own animated logo!

Show us how you're following along with William's process: whether you're using the Fathom lockup to experiment with the techniques, or are creating your own original logo animation, we'd love to see it. Upload any work along the way: your completed thumbnail sketches, your first scene, or your final animation. We can't wait to see what you come up with!
