GIF IT GOOD
Consumption of information nowadays is very fast. It means people get bored faster with the same content and need to move faster to the next thing. So if a picture conveys a thousand words, a gif is worth a million. GIF is a tendency that is on the rise in the world of design. Gif is not a new thing, it’s been available since the beginning of the internet. It was difficult trying to upload a video to a website so you could use GIFs.
Since users can upload basically anything, the behavior of consumption of information has changed suddenly. Users scan information much faster and get bored faster too. How to use Gifs has changed too, they are now a type of language where we express feelings or a faster way of telling a story. Designers who have this idea in mind have now begun incorporating Gifs in their web design. This is a way of capturing viewers’ attention faster using animations, pass your information faster before they get bored making them fall in love with your website.
Mix It Up and Go Wild
It’s a design style that designers can not just ignore. Some social platforms provide tools that allow users to let their imagination go wild. Examples are Snapchat, Musicly, Instagram, and others. These are those special effects you add to your image or pictures like the bunny ears, doodling, and all those silly and funny effects.
Put Stickers On It
Emojis were invented to express your feelings depending on what you see or feel in just a simple but informative manner. They fit well with the way people consume information nowadays at a faster pace. Emojis are somehow basic and limited leading to stickers being a better option.
When they were invented, they were great, cool, and had an accurate design until they have begun to serve only the designer, not the viewers. They generate a kaleidoscope of thoughts and feelings, unlike emojis. Just a single sticker can explain a whole sentence.
