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.

HEM News Agency

 

 

Gifville’s sister blog, The Half-Eaten Mind, turned 5 today. As part of this milestone, the blog has undergone a complete change with new branding and name. I created this simple GIF showing the old and new HEM blog header images blending into each other perpetually.

Was Sunday

 

Sadly, it’s not Sunday anymore, but very much a Monday. I wonder how people spent their Sundays back in the Eighties. Perhaps they were chilling out, watching videos like the one the above GIF came from.
