Animated Gifs & Email Blasts
An animated gif is essentially a file that rotates through multiple frames in order to create the illusion of movement. They are often used for advertisements (see image above) but they can also be used to make artwork. Your assignment is to create a targeted email campaign that includes both text and moving imagery.
