JibJab is an awesome place to work – not only because of the recent installment of a free soda machine or the fact our laundry gets clean every week, but because we are allowed to extend our creative minds. Last week the executive team surprised us with a new initiative they like to call JIBJAB: LAB. In this exercise, we were allowed two days to create a project of our liking and present what we came up with to the entire team.
With the overwhelming amount of talent we have here at JibJab it is probably no surprise the two-day innovation-fest was an incredible success. It would be impossible to share all of the amazing projects, but take a look below.
Bennett figured out a way to take a picture of someone from their iPhone & directly insert it into a JibJab postable, then display online: Instajab.
Cat lovers Glennie and Nicole created an entire JibJab page dedicated to cats – “Starring Mew”. It even included a live Twitter stream using the hashtag #jibjabcats.
Dave and Robbie worked overtime on their project & completed a heavy metal re-make of the now infamous YouTube video “Friday” by Rebecca Black. When we say heavy metal, we mean heavy metal – as we were watching the video one of the office speakers blew out! They recorded the track and made the video out of paper cut out puppets. Check it out here.
It wouldn’t have been a JIBJAB: LAB without some puppet making – both Mike and Amy made characters!
All in all it was a great experience! Some people even stepped out of their comfort zone and created something they had never done before, leaving the entire team very impressed. So now the cobwebs are dusted out of our brains and we are back to working hard to bring our creativity and innovation to you!
