Wondersauce Reimagines the Yule Log

Digital design/development shop Wondersauce and Dan Savage (no, not that Dan Savage but this one) have spearheaded a new spin on the yule log, created by President and C.E.O. of WPIX, Inc. Fred M. Thrower in 1966 as a gift to apartment-dwelling New Yorkers. Yule Log 2.0 re-imagines the yule log”through a collection of short films by illustrators, animators, directors, and creative coders.”

The style and quality of the animations vary widely, but they should all make you feel warm and toasty. Some take a relatively straightforward approach to depicting a yule log, while others — such as “Octopusmas,” “Thermofile,” “Cosmic Log” and “Dear Seer” — take the concept to unexpected places. Cultural references also abound, as in “Log OS 7.0,” “Eames Yule,” “Yulecraft,” and “Vince Guaraldi’s Living Room.” It’s a fun little project, and a good way for the 66 graphic artists involved to strut their stuff. You’ll be surprised by their inventive twists on the yule log, as well as the sheer quantity of content for the project. We’ve included a few of our favorites above and after the jump, but head on over Yule Log 2.0 for the full experience.
