It’s been a little over a month since Vimeo announced its happy coupling with GIPHY, the one-stop-creation-shop for all things GIF. The partnership allowed anyone to make GIFs from public videos on Vimeo. In return, the created GIF would would contain credit for the original creator, as well as link back to their video. As Vimeo’s blog put it at the time: “audience engagement and promotion are easy as 1-2-GIPHY.”
In addition to another creative tool in artist’s repertoire, Vimeo presented GIFs as a way for video-makers to drive engagement. In a busy world, they wrote, “you have moments—maybe mili-moments—to entertain your audience enough to drive them to your work,” and GIFs are “the perfect medium to do so.”
Now that GIFs have had some time to settle in on the video-sharing site, Vimeo has acquired a bit of a collection: 318 GIFs, to be exact. And what better time than right now to check in on these GIFs and see how they’re doing. With all that dope base material—Vimeo’s video library—hopes are high.
Let’s check out the 25 best:
