For the 2013 holiday season Noise 13 mingled San Francisco icons with winter holiday traditions. The resulting set of six letterpressed postcards feature misfitery at its jolliest. The spirits of jubilation and eccentricity combine to make for a delightful depiction of a Christmassy City by the Bay.

Project Description

We are super excited to announce our holiday campaign for 2013! A true labor of love, this project represents what we here at Noise are most thankful for this season—great design and this great city.

We’ve paired our most beloved San Francisco icons with very merry holiday traditions to celebrate the season. Whether it’s a speeding reindeer or a parading nutcracker, these six misfits are bringing the festive spirit to the streets of our City by the Bay, reminding us there’s no place like home for the holidays. The characters come to life as a set of six cards, available for purchase.

Two-color letterpress-printed on luscious, 110lb, 100% cotton paper, each card is 5×7” with rounded corners. A postcard layout on the back means they’re ready for your holiday message!
