SUMMER’S ARRIVED which means the next few months are jam-packed with excuses to leave the office.
To celebrate the sweet season and the need to switch on your Out of Office responder and gloat on your social posts and Whatsapps, we’ve teamed up with our artists including; Alva Skog, Marylou Faure, Alison Carmichael and BIFF 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. From the upcoming Cannes to a spontaneous beach trip, from Glastonbury to the obligatory summer sickie (we won’t tell if you won’t), our series of GIFs are perfect for all summer pursuits that just so happen to pull you away from your desk. Our first round of GIFs are perfect for those of you heading out to Cannes (did someone say Rosé?) as well as more general holiday ones, but be sure to keep your eyes peeled for more of our #JellyOOO over the next few weeks either via social or clicking back to this page! 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!)
