Hallowe’en – the re-run

 

 

Yesterday, me and a good chunk of my family travelled to Romford’s Brewery shopping centre to watch the remake of legendary slasher horror Hallowe’en. The purely evil Michael Myers returns to carry out his sickening crimes in inimitable fashion. This film did a good job of sticking to the original’s style and script, but amped up on the gore and scare factor. Highly recommended for fans of the Hallowe’en series.

Animate your design

 

Here are three reasons you should make your next social media post an animation. 

1. They draw the eye 
With animation, your designs take on a whole new dimension. Movement grabs a viewer’s attention in a way a static image simply can’t. And in a busy social media feed, that’s a crucial point of difference. 

2. They’re favored by social media algorithms 
Ahh, the mysterious ways of “the algorithms”. Figuring out how to make the social media algorithms work for, rather than against you, can be headache inducing. Hot tip: posts containing videos and GIFS get higher levels of engagement (those likes and shares that you crave) and are more likely to be featured in your audience’s feed. 

3. They’re surprisingly easy to make 
They might look fancy, but that doesn’t mean they take hours—or hundreds of dollars—to create.

Portland is partly cloudy

 

At the moment, the city of Portland in America’s Oregon state has partly cloudy skies,with a high temp of 75F (23.8C) and a low of 45F (7.2C). What a temperature range for one day. How do I know? GIPHY told me so.
