Alva Skog – Rosé bottle.
Animated by KITCHEN

To celebrate the sweet summer season and the need to switch on your Out of Office responder and gloat on your social posts and Whatsapps, we teamed up with our artists including; Neil Stubbings, Dan Woodger, Daniela ShererAlva SkogMarylou FaureAlison CarmichaelBIFF, and more to create a set of tailor-made out of office sign offs in the form of GIFs animated by KITCHEN to help do the talking for you.

Our first round of GIFs were made for those headed to Cannes or were basking in the sun at Glastonbury. But summer’s not over yet! We’ve been adding to our collection of #JellyOOO‘s to bring in the last Labor Day and Bank Holiday of the summer. Whether you’re planning a BBQ in the garden, hitting up a festival, or bingeing on Netflix all weekend (hey, we’re not judging), our series of GIFs are perfect for all summer pursuits that just so happen to pull you away from your desk.

N.B These GIFs are also available as stickers to be used in your insta stories as well as Whatsapp. Simply type #JellyOOO in the search functionality of GIPHY.

How to make your OOO signature fun:
1. Open up your email in your web browser (not your desktop app!)
2. Set your Out of Office message
3. Open up one of the GIFs in Giphy in a new window (links below)
4. Drag the GIF into your message
5. Save your OOO message and you’re good to go!

Still puzzled? Watch the vid below for instructions.

(Note: These GIFs can be added to your web mail and most email providers – hooray! For those of you on desktop applications… we’re working hard to ensure you’ll be able to add these to your OOO emails as well. Watch this space!)
