The history of the gif (video)

T

This is a great video about the history of gifs. As a marketer it’s interesting to see how artful they can be while generating some real traction in the name of content marketing. I haven’t had a chance to use Cinemagram but plan on it after seeing some of these examples. Check out the artists at 4:14. Amazing. Enjoy!
