Facebook Holiday Gift

As a Christmas gift to its top advertising clients, Facebook typically gives money to donate to a charity of their choice, along with a special item like last year's reusable shopping bag. This year they decided to do an art poster and the in-house Communication Design Team got to work.

The result is a 19 × 19-inch-square poster that is printed, embossed and foiled with a delicate, intricate and obsessive design that has the signature typographic and illustrative style of Ben Barry, a designer at Facebook — and if you've been following his cryptic photo status updates on Facebook you finally have closure on what he was working on all this time.

To encourage the donation aspect of the gift, the poster comes with a silkscreened, wooden token that is then customized on the back with a unique code for redeeming the donation. But the token doesn't just lay there, no, it comes nested in a pretty little flower-like pod that holds it in place. And even opening the poster requires paying attention to the custom printed packing tape and the lovely rubber stamp that has been stamped by hand.

There are also two different Thank You cards printed in 1-color offset and clear foil stamp.


New Works From Banksy

A few new stencils by one of my favorite urban artists, Banksy, have emerged near Regent’s Canal in Camden, London. Coming right at the tail-end of the Copenhagen climate talks, Banksy references the touchy subject matter in one of his pieces.

Two years ago, the City of New York's Department of Health and Mental Hygiene,
unveiled the city's first official condom on valentine's day. the original design features the letters 'NYC CONDOM' in the iconic style of the city's subway-line logos.

To keep things interesting, the city is giving new york city dwellers the chance to promote safer sex throughout the city. They're asking New Yorkers to design a special edition wrapper for NYC's iconic prophylactic. The contest is open to any New York City resident 17 and older. The winning design will grace condom packages in fall of 2010 and could also appear in social marketing campaigns.
