  • Intern Force, Assemble!

    It’s that time of year again.  The days are longer, the temperature is up, trees are looking their greenest and the interns have returned to JibJab!  Hailing from CalArts, we’re excited to have the extreme talent of Marcos, Glenn and Romney here for the warm months to help us with our numerous big summer projects.  […]

  • Go Kudobot Go!

    Everyone at JibJab does the work of two or three people, and even though we’re a small, close-knit group… all too often someone does something really awesome that slips through the cracks, never to be shared with the team.  That’s why last week we introduced a bold new initiative to applaud our colleagues in the […]

While we can’t give away any of the details about the video yet, we can say […]

  • What we ask of our Artists…
