Interns Join the Team This Summer

It’s that time again, when the summer sun heats up the beach and the days are so long it is light until 8:30pm. It’s also the time of year we fill our office with the fresh faces of the interns. We had an extremely difficult time narrowing down the talent, but after multiple school visits, […]

Team Photo Day!

We were brought back to our school picture days this week when we had Team Photo Day here at JibJab!  During the photo shoot, we had the bright idea to animate the group photo of us. Check out the team in motion… We are a pretty good looking bunch, if we say so ourselves! Wanna join our […]

Rest in Peace, Mark Ryback

We tragically lost one of our own last week. Mark Ryback, our System Administrator, passed away after a courageous battle with cancer.  Mark, a devoted husband and father, had a passion for skateboarding, loved jammin’ out to the Greatful Dead and was extremely dedicated to his work here at JibJab. Mark was a part of the JibJab family […]

Where Do the Ghost Heads Come From?

Do you ever wonder who’s head you are covering up when you make one of our many fun Starring You eCards? As you know we typically use an employee as an actor or model for a new video, but did you know our faces are also the grey default heads? We recently had a photo shoot of some of us […]

ATTENTION!! Drill Sergeant Mom

With Mother’s Day quickly approaching this Sunday we are in no shortage of fun cards to make Mom feel special on her day. In our newest Mother’s Day eCard, Drill Sergeant Mom, we see a cartoon mom singing her way through a day of keeping her house together. It is animated, but did you know we actually photograph […]

Swinging into Spring!

Spring has officially sprung & the Easter holiday is this weekend! Of course that means another fun Starring You dance that will give you moves you didn’t even realize you had! Last year we brought you a 50s themed do-wopping dance and this year we were lucky enough to work with some amazing professional swing dancers […]

Quote Wall!

When it was decided we were going to change up our office space, Gregg and Evan took the time to explore ideas for decorating the office in cool ways that would keep us inspired.  One of their ideas spun out of our JIBJAB: LAB - a text-pattern design that Andy created. They thought it would be awesome to paint […]

Magical Brew Animatic

Now that you learned more about the song writer for our new St. Patrick’s Day Starring You video, Magical Brew, take a look at the animatic used in the early creation process. In case you are unfamiliar an animatic is where we take the visual gags and ideas and start to lay them out into a timeline […]

Break Room Fun!

Just when you thought that working 2 blocks from the beach, a wheelbarrow of snacks and a beer fridge was enough distraction at work, we outdid ourselves…one day after a long team meeting we found two more fun additions to our break room! We work really hard to bring all of you fun eCards & kids storybooks, but now […]

Magical Brew-The Writing Process

The newest addition to our St. Patricks’s Day eCard collection, Magical Brew, is set to a very catchy Irish jingle! Our in-house writer, Scott, is the lyrical genius behind it, so we sat down with him to get the scoop on how he gets into his writing groove. Have you ever written a song like […]

GIF Off 3.0

Every once in a while, when we need a good laugh & a challenge, we hold a GIF contest. The ‘GIF OFF’ is a weeklong competition in which participants create daily themed animated images. Each day we all vote to see which one is our favorite and at the end of the week when all the […]

Super Bowl Sunday Snacks!

Superbowl Sunday involves a lot of snack eating and beer drinking for everybody, even if you don’t like football. As you already know, we love our snacks and beers here so we decided to ask the team what kind of fun snacks they will be enjoying this Sunday. Check out some fun recipes below…  Buffalo […]

Putting Our Old Equipment Towards a Great Cause!

After our big office remodel in the beginning of the year, we realized we had a lot of unused computers and wanted to donate them.  Luckily we found a fantastic local charity, Komputers 4 R Kids! The organization focuses on providing computers to children in the Southern California area and educating the kids on how to repair, refurbish […]

Inside JibJab: Cha-Cha-Changes in the Office!

The JibJab office has been going through a bit of a 2012 makeover. The company originally was divided in four separate rooms in our building.  We wanted to feel more togetherness in one LARGE continuous room so walls needed to come down, desks needed to be moved and spring-cleaning started early. Check out the photos below of some […]
