Gary Card’s giant mechanical Electric Christmas Tree
Designer Gary Card has created a giant mechanical Electric Christmas Tree, which stands in London’s King’s Cross Filling Station.

Twelve days of Jelly Christmas
Illustration and motion graphics agency Jelly London has created a cheeky Christmas countdown in the form of its Twelve Days of Jelly Christmas, a digital advent calendar. You can check into the Vimeo site every day to see a new ‘present’: a lady snowman metling as an admirer winks at her, perhaps – or a fairy landing atop her Christmas tree in a less than comforastble manner…
The Fedrigoni Christmas Advent-ture

12 Desks of Christmas
Here at Design Week, our desks are currently housing an inflatable dachshund, an otter and a large box of bamboo biscuits, as well as various broadsheets and Halloween ephemera. As such, we’d be wise to not follow in the footsteps of design-led publishers Laurence King. Yesterday it began its Christmas countdown in the form of 12 Desks of Christmas – an interactive guessing game in which visitors to the site have to match staff members to pictures of their desks to try and win books.
