Images play a part in creating an engaging layout. An animated GIF has potential to turn an otherwise drab post or page into something more active. However, too many can also become a distraction. It’s OK to enhance your content with animation, but be mindful of how much you’re adding. There is a difference between having an attractive layout and creating an eyesore.
How to Use Animated GIF as Logo in WordPress
Unfortunately, when it comes to troubleshooting GIF logos, you are quite dependent on your theme’s author, as it’s only them, who know, how the whole logo style is put together, without having to examine the whole theme closely.

Solved: GIF not Animating in WordPress – Posts and Featured Images
While browsing different WordPress groups on Google+, I stumbled upon a question regarding an animated GIF issue on a WordPress site: the GIF was uploaded to the media library and added on a page. When the page was published, the GIF was on it but wasn’t animating. If you, however, were to click on the GIF so that it opens in a new browser tab, it starts animating as it should. This isn’t the only GIF-issue WordPress users are battling with either. The other most common WordPress-related GIF-issue is that GIFs set as featured images never animate.
