How to make memes
A guide to creating art and content in the age of social media
In recent years, the artform of memes has taken the internet by storm. People share memes to express how they feel, to make each other laugh, and to comment on politics, spirituality, and culture. In a world that is increasingly divided – both by distance and ideology – memes are one of the only things bringing people together.
Memes spread fast and far. Overnight, a single meme can go viral around the world, inspiring countless shares and adaptations. But where do memes come from? Why are they so popular? And, most importantly, what can memes teach all writers, artists, and marketers about communicating effectively on social media?
