Simple and serene, these GIFs are beautifully executed

GIFs (opens in new tab) have been taking over the internet for quite some time now and it's easy to see why; showcasing illustrations, artworks and photography in a quick, animated succession is packed full of fun and inspiration. These animated GIFs from Carl Burton (opens in new tab) are simple, serene and absolutely stunning.

Working as an animator, 3D artist and illustrator, Burton has combined all of his expertise to create some really rather beautiful offerings. Inspired by everything from news stories to his surroundings, the colours and intricate animations make these GIFs stand out from the crowd.

If you love these GIFs just as much as we do, be sure to check out Burton's Vimeo channel (opens in new tab) as well as his official website (opens in new tab), that features lots more GIFs as well as inspiring animation and more. Take a look at a few of our favourites below.
