The Best Branded Gifts We Gave Ourselves

When you work with a bunch of creatives, you end up with some pretty cool Holiday presents.

But nothing takes the cake like the custom Fire Station No. 6 presents we give our President and Founder, Tom Hair, each year.

See, in 2012, Axiom moved into Fire Station No. 6 – one of Houston’s oldest Fire Stations. At first glance, one might wonder why a marketing firm set up shop in such a historic place. But it helps fuel our creative energy. And along the way, it inspired some creative gifts.

It’s a long-running tradition, one that only gets more involved every year. So we thought we’d share some of the best Fire Station No. 6 gifts we gave ourselves throughout the years. Let’s take it from the top.


CORN HOLE BOARDS


This is truly the gift that keeps on giving. Whenever we’re feeling competitive, we bust out these Corn Hole Boards.


FIRE STATION 6 SOCKS


If you’re going to get socks for Christmas, these are the ones you want.


CUSTOM CUFFLINKS


That brings us to 2019. This year, we modeled, designed and produced custom cufflinks with the Fire Station’s number proudly displayed.


OTHER AXIOM-BRANDED ITEMS


Christmas only comes once a year, so we keep busy making other Axiom-branded items. There are too many to list, so I’ve cherry-picked some of our favorites.


LERCH LAGER


Just a few months ago, our Creative Director, David Lerch, reached his 20th anniversary at Axiom. To celebrate, we created a custom “Lerch Lager” with the help of some brewery friends.


FIRE HOUSE RED WINE LABEL


One year, we made a wine label for a fictional Fire House Red.


BUILD YOUR OWN SNOW GLOBE


In the early days of Axiom, we made a Build Your Own Snow Globe microsite so clients can shake up their snowscape.

You can give it a spin here.


HOLIDAY CARDS


We even dabble in Holiday Cards, complete with custom illustrations of our happy faces.

We have a full run of Holiday themed cards. See the rest of the Holiday Card Designs here.


AXIOM’S 10 YEAR CLUB 


When an employee reaches their 10th anniversary at Axiom, they get one of these. Believe it or not, more Axiom employees have these cards than not.


AXIOM TEE SHIRTS


Last but not least, we’ve created a series of Tee Shirts throughout the years. Here are just a few of my favorites.






COFFEE CUPS


If you’ve ever been to a meeting at Axiom, you probably drank coffee from one of these.
