Cute overload! Subtle GIFs make for simple inspiration

Keeping things simple allows this animated GIF series to shine

You can find inspiration in almost anything - whether it's some quirky nail art designs (opens in new tab), vintage posters (opens in new tab) or impressive TV commercials (opens in new tab). Animated GIFs are one of the many delights produced from the internet, and this series had us swooning with delight thanks to its simple yet striking approach.

They were crafted by French student Guillaume Kurkdjian (opens in new tab), who specialises in photography, 2D and 3D animation as well as video direction. Combining all his efforts, this latest collection of animated GIFs entitled 'Bisous Les Copains' is a gorgeous source of inspiration.

Keeping to a strict colour scheme, the simple graphics and subtle jokes throughout each creation make this series one of the most beautiful we've ever come across. Kurkdjian proves once again that often, simplicity is the best approach.
