Ho Ho Ho! 2: The Laughter Continues

Those Christmas cards/e-cards just keep on coming… here’s some more we’ve received at CR Towers from all you lovely people out there. First up is illustrator Mr Bingo, courting a little Christmas controversy with his Osama bin Laden themed Xmas card.

Next we have this topical film from production company Stink in London, while Golden Square post production has also taken the credit crunch for this year’s theme. Meanwhile Ogilvy has created a Christmassy iPhone app that turns your phone into a Christmas hand bell.

This film from Iris demonstrates their Christmas game of putting decorations on strangers – a potentially life-threatening game to play on Oxford Street two days before the big day…

Saatchi & Saatchi London’s staff are singing their way into Christmas…

While R/GA’s Bob Greenberg encourages us to join in on their interactive Christmas card.

Not to Scale sent us this fine array of Christmas stickers.

And Linzie Hunter sent us this cute card.

Not strictly Christmassy, but worthy of a mention nonetheless is Caterino Izzo’s little sculpture of CR’s logo, sent in as a Christmas gift.

Airside sent us this 2009 calendar.

While Playne Creative sent us this delightful Christmas tree.

N/A Design emailed this nice tree made from green bits and bobs.

Alex Godwin sent us this really nice hand-lettered card.

Alistair Dance offered up a pun on his name, writing “Have a drink on me” and including a beer mat bearing the word “dance!!”. But we’ll forgive him because of the nice foiling, the footprint exclamation marks (and because it’s Christmas after all).

Five Foot Six sent us a rather sweet poster. We’ll leave it up to you to get the gag.

Kate Dawkins sent a fiendishly hard word search spelling out her Christmas message.

NMO Design sent us a folded card, complete with a red robin badge (which is on a coat somewhere, hence no actual photograph). Inside the card is a recipe for pot roast pheasant and chestnut mash. Yum!

And, finally, in a case of quite simply having too much fun, Mark managed to Christmas-ify his computer, courtesy of some cut-outs and a screensaver from the people at Mark Making. In the excitement he also got his fingers stuck in the scissors provided.

Merry Christmas everybody, from all at CR.
