I'm designing a loading screen for a website application. I'm having two options for this:

  • Skeleton Screen
  • Loading Animation

I haven't known how to choose one of them yet due to some reasons:

  1. I can't find any article that argue about using Skeleton Screen.
  2. There're many things need to consider when designing loading animation: UI Copy, Animation, Brand Identity.

Therefore, I can't decide which one is better than other yet. Hope to learn something today :D Thank you guys!

    You should quote relevant parts of the website you linked because links might stop working and content become unavailable. Oct 16, 2019 at 5:17


Its compared and explained in this article. Seems skeleton screen is a bit better than classic animations.

One of the idea could be also that you use both. So skeleton tree that has animated bars somehow..
