If you enjoy and use gifs, other than for texts and sharing mean cats, you’re going to really enjoy today’s post. Last November, James Curran spent a month in New York City where he animated a new GIF every day for 30 days inspired by something that happened during his stay. Make sure you follow James for more animated goodies!
Let’s face it, MTV Award Shows are not what they used to be. And although the quality of artists or celebrities might be at an all time low thanks to Miley Cyrus, Kim Kardashian and company, the thing has remained interesting through the years is the quality of branding, animation and design produced for the shows. This year’s eclectic branding was handled again by the awesome guys at Elastic and the results were all over the place, but in a good way. Check out this crazy video and enjoy the controlled chaos.
There’s something special about animated GIFs, specially when they’re as intricate and hypnotic as these, created by Netherlands based Designer Florian de Looij.
