Ever since Compuserve released the GIF format back in 1987, it seemed destined for Internet stardom. The feature of storing multiple images in one file enables the creation of simple animations that can be displayed seamlessly in browsers.
David Szakaly is taking this medium to the “next level” with his series of simple, yet mesmerizing, animations. The designs have a refined aesthetic which sort of sucks the viewer in, and the infinite loops support the feeling. He’s simply the best GIF artist alive.
You can find a lot more from David at his Tumblr site. It’s definitely worth following.
