GIFs turn 30

 

On the 15th June 2017, the GIF (those animated things that keep Gifville’s lights turned on) celebrated 30 years since it was devised by Steve Wilhite, of the US early computing firm CompuServe. Since then they have gone from strength to strength.

To celebrate this special milestone, Gifville will be releasing special #30YearsofGIFs pieces featuring the first GIFs to go viral. Up above is one of a series of GIFs made by GIPHY Studios to mark 30 years of dancing bananas and stuff. This one features Internet sensation Logan Paul.
