I know people always assume “the holidays” start at Thanksgiving, or at least in America, but really it starts with Halloween. No joke. You can’t just expect to find cranberry sauce the day before the Turkey Day–so here are the holidays starting October 1–complete with an advent calendar.
Here we get a glimpse of creepy communicators OrangeYouGlad created for the occasion. It’s aimed for kids, obviously, with the big bold patterns in 2011. The 2012 edition has such a nice smoky, sketchy quality that the piece really grabs my attention, but then I’d have quote one of my design professors, Erin Wright. “Designers are basically little kids,” he told me when I was creating my personal brand, “Be fun with it.” Few words have ever been more true, and I am certainly no exception!
