Vintage Web: animated GIFs are the new Flash
I love the idea that in 2011 we are already seeing examples of “vintage Web”. Animated GIFs instead of Flash or videos for storytelling are a cool idea. Of course it poses quite a few challenges, and might not always work, but I still think it’s a pretty sweet path to follow if you want to add an “indie” touch to your brand or product.
This example of Tweason’Ale using animated GIFs to show the making-of a gluten-free beer made of strawberries is super nice.
Above you see only one frame of the story, you can watch the series of animations on their website.
And if you love storytelling with animated GIFs, check out this POLO project we posted about some time ago.
