Conducting this month’s interview is Ralph Bishop, one of a handful of Product Designers at GIPHY. He had the immense privilege of subjecting Jason Clarke to a few questions in an attempt to help us all better understand how and why GIFs are born. Jason is the esteemed Sr. Animator & Producer at GIPHY. He’s also an incredible karaoke singer.

We’re launching a new series of product blog posts as an open space for our Product Managers and Designers to share ideas, projects, and product concepts we’ve tried at GIPHY.

This month’s post is by GIPHY Product Manager, Ashley Chen.

And let’s be real, it was by no means an easy one.

Because of this, we truly did not know what to expect as we prepared to pull our…
