Jamaica no problem!

Giphy Arts, a division committed to elevating artistic voices on the global gif platform, identified a cool opportunity to use Jamaica as an entry point to the region.

Eager to diversify their artist roster with more Caribbean flair, they approached us with an exciting challenge: to create three open-themed animated shorts that would resonate widely and showcase the rich cultural perspective of the Caribbean.


Augmented Storytelling

We embraced the challenge by crafting a concept around one theme that stood out to us in our shared pandemic experience—our remote work lives.

We then assembled a talented team of Jamaican animators and illustrators who understood the Caribbean perspective and culture, and created three distinct animated tales centred around personalities we all could empathise with:

  1. Plant Mom: An eccentric woman with a newfound passion for plants.
  2. Office Vampire: The nocturnal worker who rejects daylight for the glow of computer screens.
  3. Gig Guy: A versatile worker who tries his luck in various virtual trades.

The animations premiered at an Augmented Reality event, capitvating over 80 excited visitors with a blend of technology and storytelling.


Wow, definitely didn't expect to see all this when I came. You guys always exceed expectations! This is cool! Good job.
