Amongst the merry-making, mulled wine and carols of this holiday season comes the pleasure of gift-giving – and with it, the analysis paralysis of what presents to buy!
For the graphic designers in our lives – the maestros commanding type, form, print, page and pixel – finding the perfect present is additionally stressful due to their (most likely) very selective inclinations. Basically, graphic designers are usually quite picky, aren’t they... But rest assured, we’re here to help with a festive gift guide for graphic designers, curated to their discerning tastes.
This Christmas, think beyond Pantone mugs and the same old Phaidon books on design and look towards more exciting, contemporary horizons – where the presents themselves are bound to inspire their everyday creativity. After all, the best Christmas gifts are not just objects; they are gateways to untapped artistic ideas – just waiting to be explored!
As part of Pangram Playground’s inaugural ‘Play at Work’ series, the silver punch keychain intertwines work and play. Made of Zinc Alloy, it features the beautiful (and as-yet-unreleased) Playground Script, symbolising the synergy between our daily endeavours and the joy of play.
Your new favourite everyday essential, this ‘Quick Over Lazy’ long-sleeve tee – made in the USA from 6.5-ounce cotton – boasts the Playground’s take on the infamous Pangram itself, emblazoned in Off Type’s Neue Montreal Squeeze font no less. Washed for a broken-in feel, it’s a remarkable, wearable canvas merging comfort and creativity.
Beyond being just a bag, but instead a statement, the ‘Previously Known as Oversized Tote Bag’ unapologetically declares its uniqueness – creating something playful, practical and (let’s be honest) really really cool. Made of sturdy 13 oz Bull Denim.
Truly a collector’s item for the typographically-inclined – limited to only 250 copies – this specimen book celebrates Pangram Pangram’s growth and collaboration. Crafted by Studio Ground Floor, each of the 448 pages invites you to explore the diverse typefaces and talents that have shaped Pangram Pangram.
The Playground cap, made of 100% Chino twill, embodies the elegance and understatement of Playground Script. Unstructured, low profile, and embroidered in Montreal, it’s a unisex cap that seamlessly fuses style and comfort.
