Graphic Designer Dreams, in
Today Co.Design posted a piece called Watch A Brief History Of The Animated GIF . I’ve watched GIFs rise from being the designer’s file format of last resort to a vibrant, under the radar art form. The PBS short film profiled (included below) in a great glimpse into the past, present and future of the lowly GIF.
Of all the work being done with GIFs, it’s Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg’s Cinemagraphs that really capture my imagination. They look, and feel, like the dreams of a graphic designer. I’ve added “learn to create cinemagraphs like Beck and Burg” to my bucket list. You may feel the same.
