A second in the digital era seems to pass by even slower than it did before the internet existed. Since there’s now access to information everywhere, most people won’t have the patience to sit out and wait for your content to load anymore.

It therefore makes sense that a certain web design trend has persisted far longer than others have: animations. Over the past years, the trend has morphed from “very obvious animations” to functional ones that effectively enhance user experience.

Awwwwards has rounded up a list consisting of some of the most stunning loading animations around the internet. Take a look at six of them below and head over to the full list for more.
