Fold, snap, submit!

As part of our 2011 festive greetings, we’re curating a little Tumblr called Origami Santa.

Head on over to www.origamisanta.net to get your instructions, then e-mail us a photo of your hand-folded festive figure to photo@origamisanta.net and we’ll put it up.

So spread the word across the social networks - there’s nothing like a bit of home-spun arts and crafts to mark your countdown to Christmas.

Post-festive self-promotion for 2011
At DesignTactics, we try to avoid getting lost in the sea of festive greetings that land on client’s desks in the run up to Christmas. (And with the blizzards a few weeks back, we couldn’t have gotten anything to our clients even if we wanted to…)
This January, we decided to reward some of our clients for making it through the first fortnight of 2011 with a resolution-busting box of chocolates.
We’re optimistic about this year: Why deprive yourself of an essential like chocolate as 2011 makes its first tentative steps towards greatness?
Big thanks to Barbara and Jonny in the studio for hand-producing the packs!

2010 Festive Fun Links: Get a personal voicemail from Santa!
As we enter a period of relative calm after the (snow)storm, we’ll post some festive links for our annual Christmas e-mail.
Here’s the first one: Google have set up a great site that sends a personal greeting from Santa to a recipient of your choice. Just answer a few multiple-choice questions, and Google will send the spoken greeting by e-mail or Facebook.
It works great for kids, or the kids-at-heart in your life…
Thanks to the always-interesting Maria Popova and her Brain Pickings site for the link.

Now your wrapping paper can be interactive as well as festive…
This site sells wrapping paper with QR codes that link to seasonal videos - which is fun.
But wouldn’t it be great to subvert this idea to make it more personal? Just upload a video of your own Christmas greeting, generate a QR tag that redirects to the video, and print out a repeat pattern of the QR tag.
Voila - a nifty interactive gift for your QR-enabled geek friends.

Turn Facebook posts into Christmas post

Last Christmas, the Swedish Postal Service took a “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em” approach to the displacement of Christmas cards by social media like Facebook.

Thanks to the ever-innovative CP+B, they set up a service that turns status-updates on Facebook into physical Christmas cards: The posts between you and a particular friend are used to form a typographic-based design - which is then digitally printed and posted to them.

If your Swedish is up to scratch, why not try it out yourself? Click here to start…
