As you probably know, Christmas comes in December. Unless you specialize in seasonal retail and consumer products. In that case, you ring in the Yule right around the time the daffodils show up.

If you’re like us and have visions of sugarplums dancing in your head while the rest of the world is picnicking in the park, we hope you’ll enjoy some inspiration from holidays past.

Dixie Ultra Holiday Collection 2019

Dixie offers harmonious dinnerware that can stand alone or be mixed-and-matched to create festive tablescapes. Inspired by a trending return to cozy nostalgia, the 2019 holiday collection celebrates the season with light-hearted country scenes in a classic home for the holidays palette.

Panera Holiday

Willoughby developed several years of holiday campaigns for Panera. They were a terrific partner and each year we worked closely with their in-house marketing team to create new and imaginative concepts to bring joy to customers throughout the season. Campaigns were integrated across cups, bags, gift cards, in-store POS, throughout the restaurant experience and online.

André’s Confiserie Suisse

The holiday season is one of the busiest times of year for André’s, so our redesign for their brand packaging has a holiday feel and covers them year-round as well. Each element of the refreshed identity is inspired by three generations of Swiss heritage, evoking simple scenes of chalets, snow, friends and family.

Willoughby Holiday 2019

Each year, we create a Willoughby holiday card that’s meant to be reused or regifted. For 2019, we sent a series of Thankful Cards that were risograph stencil printed using environmentally conscious soy ink.

We’re pretty good at finding the holiday spirit no matter what time of year it might be. If you have a holiday project that needs a head start, we’re holly, jolly and ready to go.
