There was a time when we would joke about animated GIFs.
They became everything that was ugly about the Internet and it was the stamp of bad web design (watch the history of animated GIFs).
But GIFs have made a comeback in some amazing ways…
- Amazing Animated GIFs
- Rrrrrrrroll: An Animated GIFs Photo Experiment
- 3D 8-Bit Animated GIFs
- Piper GIFs (Yes. THAT Piper)
GIFs: A New Medium for a New Millennium
While GIFs have made a cool comeback in the land of awesome creativity and design, the GIF has become a new form of web communication. On Tumblr, in tweets, Facebook and more, animated GIFs is a way to make a point or crack a joke.
Perhaps that was the inspiration behind The GIFYs. The GIFYs is a collection and reflection of this past years various popular GIFs, as well as the GIF of the year.
How many of these have you seen before?
I think this is a form of web communication the church has really overlooked.
