Haddon Sundblom

Our latest “Red Suit” is inspired by the drawings of Haddon Sundblom.

In 1931 The Coca-Cola Company™ commissioned the illustrator Haddon Sundblom to develop advertising images using Santa Claus. The figure that Sundblom created – a warm, jolly, favourite grandfather with a flowing white beard, fur trimmed red coat, brass-buckled leather belt and large boots – went on to appear in Coca-Cola® advertising until the 1960s, and to this day remains the quintessential personification of Santa Claus.

As a tribute to the art of Sundblom, we’ve created our interpretation of some of the iconic images used in the Coca-Cola® advertising.
