You think JibJab Messages and eCards and Starring You fun just magically happens? That these laughter creators simply appear from the ether for your enjoyment? Nope! Human beings must utilize their art talents and technological know-how to create all this hilarity. Here is one such human… Kurt Hartfelder!
1. How long have you been Jibbing and Jabbing?
Four years – starting off as a summer intern!
2. Where are you from originally? (Did JibJab steal you from your home?)
Ohio born and raised – grew up in Columbus, Ohio.
3. What’s your area of creative expertise here?
Design and Animation
4. It’s unfair to ask for favorites, but… what project here holds a special place in your heart?
“Bicycle Birthday” (It’s kinda autobiographical.)
5. What JibJab fun are you working on at on the JibJabJob currently?
I am the creative director for JibJab Messages content and I’m constantly working to come up with funny little animations for the app.
Thanks for participating in our 5-question speed round, Kurt! (And be careful on that unicycle!)
