From Instagram starlets to YouTube vloggers, influencers are emerging not in the form of young Millennials or Gen Z, but digitally created animations that evoke nostalgia and familiarity in their cartoonish form. Not only meant to attract younger audiences, these inanimate, digital creations allow for more playful storytelling techniques as way to present content in a new light.
