Who created Loof & Timmy?
Loof was originally created in 2009 by Lisa Hignett.
2009: Loof's very first appearances were as fun doodles by Lisa in her friend's Birthday cards. They started to become a regular novelty used to express unique emotions that could be tough to describe with real, human words!
(Such as a poofy "Loof Balloon" illustration for wanting to float away from an awkward situation!)
2013: After graduating from university Lisa created Timmy T-Rex to co-star alongside Loof in their very first webcomic project titled "House of the Rising Bun". He was created to have an opposite, more reserved personality to Loof so their mischief would be well balanced.
2015: A fanbase for House of the Rising Bun started to grow after being featured on the internet and attending comic conventions. The panel based webcomic changed it's format to become sharable animated GIFs.
2017: Alex who is Lisa's partner came on board as co-founder.
2019: Name changed from "House of the Rising Bun" to the self-titled "Loof & Timmy".
2020: Lisa quit her job as a video games animator and started full time with Loof & Timmy launching their very own GIPHY channel.
Present: Loof & Timmy animations have been shared over 3 billion times by fans using them to express the cutest and often most bizarre emotions that are always more boring to say normally with words! We regularly exhibit at comic cons around the United Kingdom and last year we had our very first Loof & Timmy retail shop appearance!
Future: We're aiming for Loof & Timmy to have at least 946338459 new friends from around the world who will also enjoy communicating their emotions to eachother using our GIFs!
