With social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram offering support for cinemagraphs, we’re increasingly seeing innovative brands and companies leveraging cinemagraphs to bring a new approach and create interesting in their products and services. Cinemagraphs have become powerful ways of separating yourself from mainstream approaches when it comes to digital marketing.

I undertook my first major project in developing cinemagraphs in Kenya for a big fashion brand recently. Adele Dejak is a brand that prides itself in first-class Ankara jewelry for the high-end market. The goal was to create cinemagraphs and position the brand more boldly in markets across Africa and beyond.

As a digital marketer, whether in Kenya or abroad, developing cinemagraphs is one of the more effective approaches that you should be undertaking now.
