Everything at Loop Dreams was commissioned specifically for this event by 25 of Giphy's 1,000+ artists. And a lot of what you see on Giphy is commissioned too. The startup constantly culls the user-submitted content to find new artists. One of them, David Berrebi, was plucked from the crowd after being active for just two weeks. Bringing artists into the picture is a big part of Giphy's mission. “We want to give artists a seat at the table,” explains Julie Logan, director of brand strategy.
