Instagram Sticker Gifs

I get a lot of joy from animated illustration - I love the surprise of the movement and the way animation brings a smile to my face. As a personal project to develop my animation skills I created a few mini gifs for using on Instagram - born out of the frustration of not being able to find the perfect gif when I’m posting a story!

I intend to create a series of 10 to use across Instagram stories and make them available for public use via giphy.

Process

To kick the project off I spent time looking at the stories I’ve posted on instagram and thinking about the kind of gifs I use a lot and look for when I’m posting. I sketched lots of ideas out, then selected which ones to develop first.

I illustrated these by hand with black fineliner, then worked in Illustrator and Photoshop to create colourful animated gifs in my Yellow Tiger brand colours.

Project ongoing.

To Buy

I’d love an excuse to create more of these - so get in contact if you’re looking for custom animated gifs for your project!
