37 Most Hilarious Workplace GIFs

A gallery to leave you laughing in honor of Taskworld?s latest release? GIFs

BY JESSICA ZARTLER

Three little letters have changed communication as we know it ? G-I-F. The animated digital art form (as you may call it) of Graphics Interchange Format allows for so much more expression than words or emojis. Its creative possibilities are endless and is able to relate abstract thoughts an ideas into relatable visuals. In just a few seconds of looped graphics or clip of a cult hit TV show or movie, everything is understood.

And because communication can be such a challenge at work ? and more so, because we all just want to laugh more ? Taskworld has released GIFs in its chat and comments features.

A Few Bits About GIFs

The Graphics interchange format was first invented in 1987 by Compuserve inventor, Steve Wilhite. He says the file format may have died out if it weren?t for Netscape using it in its icon ? remember this one?

According to its inventor, GIF is actually pronounced with a soft ?G? sound like ?Jif.? It has moved through many trends since then:

  • 1990s culture: GIFs contain classic animation; the backgrounds are transparent so they can be used in many graphical contexts.
  • Beginning of the 21st century: Big, motionless, glittering (or other automatically generated) graphics used on Myspace and other PimpMyProfile-style social networks.
  • Current time: Looped sequences made from video captures of movies or TV shows, distributed in blogs, not integrated into the page design surrounding it.
