Animations That Are Over the Rainbow

Communication is an integral part of society. We talk, we chat; we advertise, we promote; we boast, we comfort. There are so many ways to reach out to people, so many stories to tell and things to say.

The internet has, of course, created a whole new way of getting your message out. Whether you have a website for your business, a blog through which you share relevant or personal information, or you simply enjoy sending emails to correspond with friends and acquaintances, you need no longer rely on pen and paper, print and broadcast media or even the telephone if, like me, you have an aversion.

One of the fun aspects of all of these is that we need not rely on words alone to  convey our thoughts and ideas. An elderly relative of mine used to decorate her letters to friends with drawings of flowers. They added a lovely old-world feminine touch, but it's not something most of us feel compelled to do.

These days, however, graphics can add a wonderful visual component to web design and emails. Two years ago, for example, fed up with the price of stamps for sending Christmas cards, I opted instead to do a mass emailing complete with an adorable animation. People loved it. Or at least they said they did.

Now with summer just short weeks away, finding great animations to adorn your online communication, your is a breeze. In keeping with my rainbow theme this week, I found a few cheery examples from the wonderful AnimationFactory
