The making of the Mentor Christmas card

Behind the scenes of the Mentor 2022 Christmas Card...

If you stumbled into the Mentor offices one chilly day in December you'd be greeted to a traditional Christmas work scene. Christmas music playing softly, jolly decorations adorning the walls and the creative team huddled together in the boardroom around…some miniature figures building a mince pie?!

For our annual Christmas e-card this year, we decided to celebrate the nation's favourite festive treat. By using train model figurines as well as some fake snow (or dustings of plain flour to be exact) we created an incredible miniature wintery scene complete with footprints and tyre tracks. Some called our idea ‘pie in the sky’, but we think the results will warm the heart of any seasonal Scrooge.

Life of Pie

Keep your eyes on the pies

We were inspired by the office mince com-pie-tition where we have been doing the hard job of sampling the best mince pies that Bristol’s supermarkets have to offer. Each week a new pack of beautifully crimped pies arrived on our judging table, to be rated on pastry, filling and the overall flavour. We can reveal that Mentor’s favourites were Aldi’s Holly Lane Deep Filled Mince Pies and Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference Mince Pies, so we recommend you grab one of these this Christmas! 

It is this time of the year where we look back on the past 12 months. 2022 has been a busy one that has seen Mentor and our clients take a significant step forward following two interrupted years. We have supported our clients with a record number of new websites and Umbraco extension projects, including launching a new app, alongside record investment in our digital security and infrastructure. 

Mentor would like to thank you for your continued support this year and beyond. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! 

From all the team at Mentor.
