Typography gift wrap paper


Typography gift wrap paper

We asked ourselves: Why not use figures themselves to design wrapping paper for your Advent calendar?
No sooner said than done—now available: Typographic wrapping paper for your Advent Calender.

Your gifts don’t need tiny boxes, the wrapping paper offers more amount for taller and other shaped presents (for e.g. wine, apples, tangerines … ). Additional labeling isn’t required for your Advent calender.

Coke's "Shake Up Christmas" campaign font

I was sitting in the movies the other day, waiting for the movie to start, when Coke's new Christmas ad "Shake Up Christmas" came on. The ad was cute, but what really grabbed my attention was the font they used at the end of the ad. It was a slab serif font, but with the most beautiful rounded corners. I tried searching for it on the net but wasn't successful. I did manage to find the following though:

I have a feeling that the font was designed by Coke for Coke, but hopefully I'm wrong.

Multiscript programme for a Christmas concert

I was given the responsibility of designing the programme for my church choir's Christmas concert at the last minute, and threw one together in a single evening. So it's very basic, and I was very limited in my type choices, but I thought typophiles would appreciate a seasonally-appropriate example of multiscript typography (it's a Korean church in France). Sorry about the picture quality.

The Korean typefaces used were Munchebu Jemok Batangche (문체부 제목 바탕체; "Ministry of Culture titling serif") for the display and Nanum Myeongjo (나눔명조) for the text. The Latin uses Arno.

Holiday gift guide for designers?

Does anyone know of any good current online gift guides for designers? My google searches have found mainly stuff that's either a few years old, or has gifts that more expensive than would be appropriate for coworkers.

(I know I probably should've asked this question a couple weeks ago).
