If October is too early to start hearing Christmas music everywhere you, then January might be too late to even think about them. But if it comes letterpressed and infographic-ized, then it’s something worth getting merry about. The folks at Paragon have deconstructed Jingle Bells into a handy poster that will delight. And get the song stuck in your head for the rest of the day. Sorry.
This concept came out of a team brainstorm. We decided early on that we wanted to take something traditional and turn it on its head. Once we reread the second verse of Jingle Bells the made-up word “upsot” jumped out at us. The entire piece is meant to be very tongue-in-cheek. And the response from our clients has been tremendous.
We waited a bit late to develop our concept this year so there was not much margin for error. Once we got started our first step was to plan the content very carefully. This saved us during the design phase. Even if you think you don’t really have the time to sketch, pre-plan or brainstorm, you’re doing yourself a disservice by skipping that crucial step — either the project will take longer than it should or the product won’t be as good.
