Back for another year, Christmas Gifs is a festive showcase of animated Gifs created by an international group of illustrators, animators and directors

The Christmas Gif project is curated by artist, Ryan Todd who collaborated with digital design studio, Enjoythis to create the online platform to exhibit work from a diverse band of practitioners including Supermundane (Gif above).

The project debuted last year (see our post here) but is now back for another season.

“The aim of the project is twofold: to create a space for professional animators and directors to produce something personal, experimentation or just plain fun and for illustrators and artists who may not have created anything animated before to take their first step into the world of moving image,” Todd says. “The humble gif offers the perfect format in which to create something special.”

Work featured this year includes this golfing Santa by Animade
