Work is a gift.

Work is an opportunity to grow, create, and fulfill our potential.

We believe everyone was born to learn, create, and give. Which is why we work hard to achieve excellence, create beautiful things, and use our gifts to help others.

Work should be fun.

We spend a kajillion hours of our lives at work—why not enjoy it?

We believe it's not just our job to make things, but to make making things fun, by enjoying our craft and sharing our joy (and a handy pun or two) with others.

Meet our founders.

Handshake is a collaborative team of artists, creatives, and aspiring comedians led by two co-founders.

Jarin Foster

Director / Co-Founder

A master of motion, I shred visual gnar, carving through artistic monotony in a flurry of bézier curves and camera moves. Driven by powerful narrative and intentional design, my handcrafted creations awaken imaginations and illuminate the most moving of life’s adventures.

Fun Facts on Hand

  • Played a ferocious fowl in a never-released viral video.
  • Measures 77” plus another inch for the hair. That’s two inches taller than John Wayne (when he was last upright).
  • Studied the process of applying heat to bread, but then ate the freshly toasted data.
  • Invested in essential oils when they were optional.
  • Calls a thin moon a “croissant”.
  • Drifted his car through a blizzard at Dairy Queen.

Jean-Marc Le Doux

Director / Co-Founder

A wizard in the art of creative alchemy, my quest is simple: to concoct marketing gold from a brew of story and design. I’m often found in my tower practicing movie magic tricks and conjuring forth emotive and cinematic qualities in new projects, with minimal sleight of hand.

Fun Facts on Hand

  • Played Han Solo in “Kylo,” a viral Star Wars Adele parody.
  • Says “Good luck, Macbeth” backstage before community theater performances.
  • Often confuses some things with other things. Or is it other things with some things?
  • Found a treasure map under a giant X.
  • Purchased a taxidermied bear, just so he could point at stuff “with his bear hands.”
Why "Handshake?"

A video is like a handshake. It says a lot about you in a short period of time.

For us, "Handshake" represents making powerful videos that present you and your brand well. "Handshake" also acts as a throwback to the olden days, when business wasn't corporate or impersonal, but was the stuff of friends, laughs, and maybe a couple of drinks. But above all, "Handshake" means trust, relationship, and the beginnings of something great.
