Christmas by Colour

2 21 Dec 09


Woo hoo I made the final twelve colours for my ‘After Eights’ submission!

Last year Raw Design thought up the brilliant Christmas by Colour project which would donate all profits to the charity C.A.L.M. (Campaign Against Living Miserably). I like many others made a submission based on a colour that shaped my Christmas and was fortunate enough to be shortlisted.

This year Raw have evolved the award-winning campaign by taking 40 of their favourite colour submissions and asking the online community to vote for their favourites. This was then whittled down to the top 12 and produced into two sets of greetings cards. I received mine this morning and must say they are great and the perfect Christmas card to create a talking point on Christmas day.

The top twelve colours are as follows:

Quality Street (Guy Moorhouse)
Sprouts (John Dowling)
Yellow snow (Nick Greenwood)
Mulled wine (Tash Willcocks)
End of the Sellotape (Pete Clarke)
Park Lane & Mayfair (Jez Burrows)
Bank balance (Tom Heaton)
Granny’s whiskers (Jordan Nelson)
After Eights (Shane Phillips)
Bucks Fizz (Gil Cocker)
Pigs in blankets (Sean Rees)
Walking in the Air (Kelly Mackenzie)

You can get your packs of cards in the Christmas by Colour shop.

You can also find this project and more creative seasonal offerings on the Creative Review blog.


After Eights is a great choice!

It’s not wrong to eat half a pack after Christmas dinner alone is it?!
