Motion Design Inspiration: Loops
Here's some of our favorite MoGraph loops.
One of the best ways to grow your skills as a Motion Graphic Designer is to do a looping project. But that is a littler easier said than done...
Loop projects actually require a lot of organization and pre-planning. So it’s no surprise that some of the biggest names in MoGraph consistently do loop projects to grow their skills. Lookin’ at you Allen Laseter.
A quick #loop search on Instagram will yield thousands of tasty MoGraph examples, but we thought it’d be fun to create a collection of our favorite looping projects. These aren’t your normal shape bounces. Prepare to have your eyeballs melted like that one guy in raiders of the lost ark.
Geoffroy de Crecy
Appropriately titled, Loops, this video from Geoffroy de Crecy features looping animations in a dystopian world. Check out his expert use of midcentury colors and design. He designed the entire thing in 3DSMax.

Prepare to be mesmerized. These insane loop sequences created by subBlue were created for a Parisian art exhibit. It’s amazing to think that these resolve in the same way they start. They also have a site full of these crazy loops.
There’s a lot that goes into creating a loop project like the ones listed above, but if you want to learn how to create a simple looping layer the Loop Expression is the tool to use. We put together a handy dandy tutorial about using the loop expression in After Effects.
