Storytelling is a big part of website design and motion often helps us do it better. A web motion graphic will better communicate your story while also attracting attention to your site. Motion is not just a nice-to-have feature. . . it can be critical to communication.
Facebook Video Covers
Over the past couple months, Facebook has been rolling out the ability to add video cover images to Facebook pages. What this means is that we can now replace the static cover photo with a dynamic cover video, giving the page a more professional, business like, presentation.
Cover videos can contain video clips, still images, animations, and audio, all of which will better advertise your product/service.

Videos take time to watch – a couple minutes at the very least. They also produce sound. GIFs offer a much more convenient, faster and totally silent way to express something. It’s the perfect combination between image and video.
Animated GIF’s are essentially a mini video, with no sound, that can be watched from start to finish in as little as one or two seconds in a simple, auto-looping fashion.
These animated GIFs were developed in Adobe Animate CC and Adobe After Effects CC and then exported as GIFs from Adobe Photoshop CC.
