Describe the brief from the client
Come up with the agency Christmas card.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
It’s one of the toughest briefs creatives will face all year – and nobody wants to do it. Sure it seems simple. But we all know how difficult it can be to dodge holiday clichés and puns on a brief like this.
Despite the obvious challenge, we set out to send clients something fresh and surprising that they simply couldn’t ignore.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
Everybody looks forward to the holidays, clients and agency folk alike. So to commemorate the end of the working year, we sent them our very last proof.
The proof of the agency Christmas card was an engaging, fresh take on a tired brief that made light of a frantic time of year.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
It’s hard to measure a goodwill exercise. However, laughs and praise flooded in from clients once the cylinders hit their desks. Among the phone calls and emails received, were messages like this one:
“Thanks for your xmas card – it’s the best one I have seen this year!! I thought it was a job! Cheers, Michelle”
