This response showcases all 18 days of Manchester International Festival through both illustration and animation. Every day, designer Tara Collette interpreted, drew and animated an event that was taking place during that specific day. A response to each title from the event calendar was created, from text heavy illustrations to detailed stop frame images. The GIF’s take around 1-3 hours to create and can now all be viewed on www.gifaday-mif.co.uk. Collette’s only restriction or rule of the project was ‘no human features’ – no people, no hands, just items and text.
