Even the anna.aero data elves will be given time off at Christmas, and given slightly more rations than usual – perhaps even a whole mince pie and a thimble full of sherry. The creative people that work in our office who make anna.aero look so fab have come up with a movie star look-a-likes themed Christmas card this year – find out here who your anna.aero contact looks like (with more than a dash of artistic licence) from the silver screen.
