Following its tradition of musical holiday creations, this year AKQA has created Mobile Orchestra. Grab some of your friends or colleagues and fire up the site on your mobile devices. Each will be assigned an instrument, to create an orchestral rendition of “Carol of the Bells.”

The Ad-Mazing Augmento is youth-engagement agency Fuel’s holiday creation this year, and it takes the form of a mystical tool offering insight into the upcoming marketing and digital trends for 2013.

Hispanic-focused agency Wing decided to combine two important cultural phenomena: the Christmas sweater and the “YOLO” lifestyle philosophy. The result? The YOLO Holiday Sweater, of course…
Y&R wants to hear your hopes for a better 2013 and is inviting users to upload 15-second videos or jpegs to a video that will grow in real time to include submitted messages, titled “Imagine a Better World.”
