Animated icon set brings design to life

No-one can resist a good animated GIF. Yes, they're thoroughly outdated and no-one can agree how to pronounce their name (seriously though, only dangerous maniacs say 'jif'), but because they're still absolutely brilliant for animation, they're easy to use and they just work without any special plugins or libraries, they'll still be filling the internet when Flash is a long-forgotten memory.

Matthew Broerman of Cincinnati-based Ink+Craft is a big fan, and he's showing his love for the GIF with some sets of amazing vector art animated icons: Animaticons.

Jim McCauley

Jim McCauley is a writer, performer and cat-wrangler who started writing professionally way back in 1995 on PC Format magazine, and has been covering technology-related subjects ever since, whether it's hardware, software or videogames. A chance call in 2005 led to Jim taking charge of Computer Arts' website and developing an interest in the world of graphic design, and eventually led to a move over to the freshly-launched Creative Bloq in 2012. Jim now works as a freelance writer for sites including Creative Bloq, T3 and PetsRadar, specialising in design, technology, wellness and cats, while doing the occasional pantomime and street performance in Bath and designing posters for a local drama group on the side.
