action animation

Recently nike used some clever tvc using action packed stylized 2D animation. these ads really hit the target. in such a short duration only animation can convey so much.

here are those videos:



I am wondering if the same ads could have worked in live action or CGI?

Animated GIFs in a blog post

It has been always a big question to me, why does blogger not support animated GIF images?
all the great new website and mobile chats are having a fun time with  animated images. dribbble.com and behance.net are a fine example.
anyway..
recently I compiled my conference room doodles in an animated gif format and I wanted to share it in a blog post so I looked for answers through a google search. most of the people suggested to host your gif images to a image site and get a link to incorporate in the post.
at the moment that seems to be the most effective solution. though uploading your gif images to a image site and then getting a link is a absurd and long task. 
So I looked at the choices in front of me and decided to upload my images on google drive and get a share link. 
to my surprise it worked really well. So I guess this is a fine way to jazz up a blog post with animated images. 
random numeric doodles on post it




















some unintended shapes grow..on..sticky notes
























PS: Sometimes google drive link has hiccups...so...
I think Gfycat.com (a gif publishing site) is more handy than google drive link!
