The Project

Started in 2011, here at Shape we created a collaboration project that connected students, graduates and industry professionals together. We created a digital platform to enable creatives to create artwork free for download to end users on iPhone & iPad.

The process is simple. A digital calendar that counts down to christmas and reveals a bespoke illustration each day themed around 4 different Shapes (Square, Triangle, Circle and Hexagon) & Christmas! 25 creatives are chosen to feature their artwork from all over the world.

Donate to Charity

This year, we will be in partnership with ‘Key103 Cash for Kids’ to raise funds for ‘Mission Christmas’. Thousands of children in poverty will wake up to a Christmas without presents this year. Your donation will provide a gift that we’ll give to a disadvantaged child to make their Christmas morning that little bit brighter.

Even if it is a small amount you can afford, everything counts and makes the world a better place for those in need.
