The Ultimate Guide to Secret Santa infographic

The Ultimate Guide to Secret Santa is a fun design for Christmas from MoneySupermarket.com in the UK (so the currency amounts are in British Pounds).  This office traditional strikes fear into many employees that fear getting the gift wrong.

Oh, the joys of working in an office at Christmas time.  Festive decorations, the office party and of course the exchange of “Secret Santa” presents make corporate Yuletide a truly eventful experience. 

Secret Santa involves the anonymous exchange of cheap gifts at Christmas time, typically between office workers.  It is a fun test of your resourcefulness and innovation as you endeavour to buy a present that your colleague will either love, or will find ironically hilarious.  If you go for the humorous option however, it is important to ensure that your colleague will understand and appreciate the joke!

If you are struggling for inspiration this year, hopefully our Secret Santa infographic will provide some ideas.  If you’d rather not play this year and make some savings on your Christmas present budget, we still think you’ll enjoy what we’ve come up with…

The first thing you’ll notice about this design is that it’s an animated GIF file.  A flashback to 90’s web design, this has been pretty tastefully done to only animate the characters eyes to blink and the title text.  You don’t see this in infographic design very often, and I think it was very well done here.

Both a copyright statement and the URL to the original infographic landing page should have been included in the footer space.
