The latest design project from Smart Ideas is a new advent calendar for Severn Trent Water launched today.

The calendar, aimed at Severn Trent Water users reveals a multiple choice question each day about what you should or should not put down your toilet or sink, in a fun and friendly way.

The advent calendar also has an educational message in order to reduce the number of blockages in sewers and has been produced in both HTML and Flash.

Oops he slipped!

At last, we have the results from our Christmas snowball competition and the winner is David Gillette of David Gillette Hair and Beauty. So congratulations David, an iPod Shuffle is on its way to you! To recap for those of you who missed what it was all about, we despatched our Christmas card as an instruction manual with a packet of fake snow and asked clients to do something ultra creative with their fake snow.

I’m maroooned – there is snow falling everywhere again and so idle hands and all that! How much do I love broadband at times like this?

So with idle hands, I put them to good use and entered Tom Foulke’s (Buro Happold) Christmas card competition ‘Tom’s Christmas Card Bonanza’.

Tom said  ‘Design agency’s send (and receive) some of the most extraordinary Xmas cards and I want to celebrate the art form! After all with today’s economic climate it’s not often that creative teams get to really stretch their legs and simply indulge themselves.’

If you’re feeling so inclined and generous after seeing our competition entry you could nominate us via Twitter @TomFoulkes using #bestxmascard -closing date is 24th December .

We’re always looking for something different…

So when we saw this fake snow, we immediately pounced on it…

What a great idea for a competition we all thought – you could almost hear us all in unison…ask our clients to make snowballs and send us creative pictures of them!

Better still double it up as a Christmas card and make people smile – as if they hadn’t had enough snow and more to come!

Watch this space for the entries into the competition which will win a Ishuffle.
