GIPHY x Planeta

This is a showcase of Planeta’s collaborative projects for GIPHY. Read more about various projects here.

Sticker Time

After the walls of a gallery collapse, the user flies through swirls of giant GIF stickers in our second VR GIF gallery collaboration.

Museum of GIF Art (MoGA)

MoGA is a Virtual Reality GIF Art Museum available on Steam, iOS and Android. The first show featured work by John Fogarty, Scorpion Dagger, Dina Kelberman, Ann Hirsch, Sam Rolfes, Julian Glander and many other great artists.


Users can create with a wide variety of presets including face-tracked stickers, animated overlays, chromakeyed backgrounds, and filters. Chosen Best 25 Apps of 2015 by Apple.


Spoken words are recorded as text in this mobile camera app you talk to. You can even turn your words into emoji speach. The looping creation can be shared anywhere.


Our first hardware collaboration with Giphy is the GIPHY Frame, an interactive photobooth for special events that creates GIFs with guests using goofy prompts and fun LED special effects.
