2022 has been a tough one for everyone.
But rather than reflect any doom and gloom in the annual agency Christmas card, isobel has picked the richest, most opulent period of history for this year’s theme.
The London based independent creative agency, famous for creating an annual Christmas photographic tableau featuring its whole team, has this year created a flamboyant 18th century scene from the French aristocracy.
Shot in one take by photographer Paul Thompson, the card features Emperor Napoleon, general aristocratic opulence, wardrobe from the National Theatre, and even the latest addition to the isobel family, a 9-month-old baby.
Previous isobel Christmas cards have included Swan Lake, a Retirement Home, a Salvation Army brass band, and inmates from a State Penitentiary. Check them all out here.
isobel uses its annual Christmas card shoots as an opportunity for everyone to come together, dress up, get into character, have fun, and create something special.
Rob Fletcher, founder and executive creative director at isobel states: "For
the 17th annual isobel Christmas card, we're flying in the face of the
current cost of living crisis and have created the most opulent,
extravagant Christmas card ever created. Shot on location in Mayfair
using costumes from the National Theatre with an attitude not seen
since 18th century France."
