What do you first picture when you think of Christmas? Yeah, we thought so; Pinatas.
OK, so perhaps the colourful mules that have recently taken shelter in PrettyGreen HQ are not your traditional ‘gift under the tree’, but following the PrettyGreen tradition (and at our 3rd Christmas we can now call it a tradition) we decided to take some international inspiration and bring a bit of brightness to the offices of our pals:
1st year we chose a sapling from the shores of Norway to represent the new start and growth of PG
2nd year a Chinese lantern that you could write a message on, representing your hopes and aspirations for the New Year
And this year we looked to Mexico for the colour and vibrancy of their Xmas celebrations, representing the excitement we wish you all at this time of year. (Plus they’re really fun to whack)
Anyway, here’s an accompanying poem from T.S. Ashman…
Christmas comes just once a year,
It makes us feel all kind,
To celebrate, we’re sending gifts,
Stuffed in a mule’s behind.
We’ve been on quite a journey,
In a jam-packed second year,
From pop-up shops to giant Catch,
And New Agency of the Year.
Spots v Stripes went on the road
Nando’s ‘High Five Card’ made the news
Trident gigged around the world
And Red Bull’s studio got rave reviews
Looking back, we feel quite smug,
So we’ll share our joint elation
With stick in hand, just whack the ass
And enjoy your festive celebration!
