Bringing our Holiday Photos to Life with Cinemagraphs

Dec 22, 2015 Lauren McAuliffe

Last week at InkHouse we got in the holiday spirit during our FOF (Forced Office Fun) Secret Santa party. Although we had sweet treats, lots of bubbly and a tree filled with gifts, the fun didn’t stop there. Our design team helped us create some magical memories and brought our holiday photos to life through cinemagraphs. For those who aren’t familiar, a cinemagraph is a unique blend of a photo and video to create a living moment within a still image. The first cinemagraphs were created back in 2011, but are quickly becoming a popular way to enhance images used across branding campaigns, especially within social media.

We had so much fun creating cinemagraphs at our holiday party. Below, you can see the magic our design elves crafted and delivered just in time for Christmas.

Cinemagraphs are certainly the GIF(t)s that keep on giving, and we love having them as part of our design offerings. Got a favorite of ours? Let us know in a comment!
