Designer Santa

Donning Alexander Wang, Acne Studios, and Martin Margiela, Santa Just got Hip

‘We wanted to create a Christmas idea to send out to our followers, friends & clients,’ Joint London designer, Albert Pukies told us about his company’s awesome Designer Santa digital Christmas card website. The site allows you to download Christmas cards with an up-to-date version of Santa on the cover, sporting a selection of designer garbs, including Martin Margiela and Kenzo. All of this festive fun comes at the low, low price of a single tweet about the project.

Joint London is a creative business based in Soho, London who work with clients such as Amazon, Google and TSB bank on brand strategy and brand design to product design and advertising. Albert told us a little more about this new side to Santa:

The Plus: Santa is…
Albert Pukies:
An iconic character invented by Coca Cola. That’s why the idea doesn’t seem to far off; he’s already branded from head to toe!

TP: Where did the idea come from?
Combining an image people are used to seeing with this modern twist is always something people will be interested in. We also spoke to Santa Claus himself about it and he really liked it.

TP: Which stylish Santa is your favourite?
For me it’s Alexander Wang as it was the first one we created. My mom loves the Kenzo one.
