Contact sections are one of the most overlooked aspects of a web design, yet they are fundamental in connecting with users. Keep your visitors entertained with a Lottie animation.

Celebratory moments

Notification bells aren’t the only way to notify users they’ve completed an action on your web-based project. Celebratory animated illustrations serve the same purpose but provide far more excitement and visual stimulation.

Gifts and giveaways

Success on email and popup campaigns have relatively low success rates, meaning if you can find ways to improve your CTR by even 1%, you will notice a significant increase in conversions. Drive user engagement and interest with the following animations.  

The Giveaway animation is perfect for an email or popup campaign because it creates urgency. Users know they are being offered a gift but are uncertain what it is and can only reveal their prize if they engage. The subtle animation raises the stakes driving your CTR.

Ask For Review

Incentivizing users to rate your products, online store, or app is a never-ending job. You can encourage reviews with the Rating animation along with a promo code or special offer once you’ve verified completion.

Here is another animation that will keep users from bouncing from your pages. You can use this animation when your servers are running slow or users are waiting for a file to download.

Security UI elements are becoming more prevalent as cybercrime is on the rise. These functional aspects of websites and apps are often overlooked from a design perspective. Elevate your project and keep cohesion with Lottie animations.

For example this animation is a beautifully designed, minimalistic motion design. You can use this Lottie to directly communicate the action of scanning a fingerprint for identity verification or to emphasize your organization’s dedication to cybersecurity.

Pull to refresh

Adding touchscreen-specific gestures to your app can help improve the user experience. This is also a great opportunity to implement designs that make your app stand out.

If your app requires you to reload the page, Lottie is here to help. 

For example, if you need to update the inventory on exclusive releases, users will need to refresh the page to ensure their item is in stock before making a purchase.

Security Shield

 Every website must let visitors know their data is protected, whether you are a cyber security firm or selling dog treats. You can use the Security Shield to communicate that you’ve taken the necessary steps to protect personal information at checkout or in your global menus.
