Co-Founder and Creative Director
The New York-based artist collective known as Mr. GIF is comprised of Jimmy Repeat and Mark Portillo. Since April 2011, the duo has been at the forefront of the resurgence of the GIF, or graphics interchange format. Their quirky, topical and downright beautiful animations have helped the college friends land GIF gigs with Forbes, XXL Magazine with Rick Ross, designer Mark Ecko, Vice Magazine, "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," MTV and former chef, TV host and author Anthony Bourdain. Their work is an eclectic and electric mix of hand-drawn art, photographs and 8-bit compositions. Plus, "They are really cool bad-ass dudes," says Fernando Alfonso III of The Daily Dot.
