Today, I'm thrilled to announce that Iconscout has been acquired by LottieFiles, the largest platform around the file format Lottie.
We have known the team behind LottieFiles for a while now and have been working closely together to advance our mission to create the largest design ecosystem that helps bring apps and platforms to life with incredible assets.
The majority of today's most-downloaded apps now use the Lottie format for their motion graphics due to its lightweight file size, which is over 600% smaller than traditional GIF files. LottieFiles platform is the go-to place for tools, editors, resources, integrations, and all things Lottie. It has also become one of the most extensive design and developer communities globally.
We saw this as a natural evolution to shaping Iconscout and its core platform. We are grateful to our community, our users, and marketplace contributors for their love and support. A special thanks to Kshitij, Nattu, and the LottieFiles team for welcoming us and helping us take our vision to a new level.
