‘Brooching’ The Subject of Christmas…

It’s hard to ignore the impending festive season here in London. Our streets are being transformed with lights and an array of winter-themed oversized decorations. And long may that continue.

Here at Endpoint, our own preparations are underway too. How else would we kick off the month-long celebrations than with a little seasonal wayfinding?

Taking inspiration from Brighton-based illustrator and designer, Lou Taylor, who designed a range of road sign brooches, we thought we would have a little fun in-house one lunchtime and (attempt) to design our own wayfinding-themed Christmas brooches. You know – the kind of thing we might give to friends, family, or the odd design enthusiast.

With the help of Christmas songs and a rainbow of felt pens, it wasn’t long before everyone from our finance manager to our marketing team had found their creative spark. The fruits of our labours included everything from a Roundel-inspired Christmas brooch to a series of seasonal London Underground signs.

What nicer way to spend a Monday lunchtime and focus our minds on the upcoming shopping that we will all inevitably have to do(!)? With a little more time, perhaps next year we’ll actually start making these…

After all, no self-respecting Wayfinder should be without a wayfinding brooch for Christmas, right?
