It's a Shape Christmas

Started in 2011, here at MadeByShape we created a collaboration project that connected students, graduates and industry professionals together. We created a digital advent calendar to enable creatives to create artwork free for download to end users on iPhone & iPad.

The process was simple. A digital calendar that counts down to christmas day and reveals a bespoke illustration each day themed around 4 different Shapes (Square, Triangle, Circle and Hexagon) & Christmas! 25 creatives are chosen to feature their artwork from all over the world.

This year we've been 'hella' busy, so we've decided to generate Ai illustrations to celebrate It's a Shape Christmas in 2023. If you want to get in touch with us regarding the 'It's a Shape Christmas' project please email

We'd like to mention a special shoutout to the very talented Jane Bowyer and James Huson who created our animated short story below.
