Best & worst holiday cards

James Cooper of Saatchi & Saatchi and Brian Morrissey of Adweek have posted their picks for the best and worst ad-agency holiday cards over at the AdFreak blog. Is it a little Grinchy to judge expressions of holiday cheer? Maybe. Is their survey exhaustive? Probably not. But whatever, it’s interesting to see what people come up with for their holiday card—and to hear unvarnished opinions about the results.

Here’s one that made the “best” list: a rap video by Goodby, Silverstein & Partners in which old school and new school face off. Sample lyric: “New school, I’m sick of your sh*t/We started this business/Or did you forget?”

And now, here’s our holiday card, which we sent out the old-school way, by snail mail:

The photo on the front is "Dixie Street II, Indiana, USA 2000," by Nadav Kander.

The sentiments we expressed are old-fashioned too, which is to say they’re completely sincere. Happy holidays, everyone. I’ll be putting the blog on hiatus till Monday, January 4. See you then.
