The day after Thanksgiving, a close friend of mine forwarded me an email blast from Amazon that boasted their “Black Friday Deals Week.” Knowing I am a huge geek, she forwarded me the email not because she wanted me to be in on the special, but because of the way the email was designed. Instead of a standard HTML email, it contained an animated gif. For those of you who may not know, a GIF is a file which allows various images (frames) in the file to be painted with time delays. Think of the flipbooks you made when you were a kid. What? You didn’t make any flipbooks as a child? That’s so sad! Go grab a pack of post-its and a pencil, and let your imagination run wild! Need some inspiration?
