AUFI's designer wrapping paper in aid of homelessness

“Unlike a puppy, Christmas wrapping paper is just for Christmas, so we wanted to make it disposable but stylish as hell." - AUFI Co-founder Nick Bell

What?
ASK US FOR IDEAS (AUFI) brought together a dozen of the world's best creative agencies to release exquisite designer wrapping paper for charity.
Who are AUFI?
AUFI represents a hand-picked network of the leading creative agencies from around the world, varying in size, style and specialisation and connects them to brands including: Google; Casper; Frederic Malle; Yale; Kia; Voyage Auto; nurx; Seed Health; and Spotify.
When is the launch?
The exclusive run of 200 of the 12 luxury designs went on sale 29/12/2018, with all the profits going to Wrap Up London
What is Wrap Up London?
Wrap Up London is a campaign that keeps vunerable people in London clothed and warm during the winter period.
How to get involved!
Available for £42 from wrappingup.co.uk, the pack of 12 wrapping papers depicts everything from hip-hop icons, streaky bacon, contemporary spins on classic parcel paper, abstract weather patterns and twisted typography.


The designs
International agency Base Design’s offering features a wry take on the ubiquity of social media, declaring ‘So Many Likes – When all you Need is Love’.
With wrapping paper one of the festive season’s biggest polluters, AUFI chose this opportunity to do something playful but powerful by printing the designs on fully recyclable G F Smith Colorplan paper.
The designs were printed by Harvey Lloyd Screens.
