The GIPHY team is sad to hear of the passing of Stephen Wilhite, the creator of the GIF file format.

GIPHY was built on a sincere love for the GIF — the simplicity of the format, the power of the looping image. We are indebted to the creativity and vision of Mr. Wilhite. Thank you so much for creating something that has been, and will long continue to be, enjoyed by millions of people around the world.

This was the first GIF ever uploaded to the internet, by Mr. Wilhite himself in 1987.
