Christmas is just over a week away and the holiday season is in full swing. Is your holiday cheer starting to suffer? If your holiday spirit meter is on empty, these amazing holiday designs will inspire you to finish out the season!
Fantasy Light Reindeer
Why do we love it? This is beautiful, combining the iconic reindeer, the colorful lights, and the snowy landscape into a perfect holiday fantasy.
What can you learn? Rudolf has been done many ways and by many artists. You could even call him iconic. Yet, with talent and creativity, he can be done in a way that’s new and fresh. No matter how many times you’ve told the same story, designed the same message, or sold the same product, find ways to make it new and fresh.

Why do we love it? In one, perfect setting, winter is covered. From the champaigne that flows as the year ends, to the snow that falls during the season, to a beautiful play on the traditional gifts, this hits the high points of the season without being corny.
What can you learn? Simple design can portray big ideas. 4 simple shapes are able to capture the imagination for a host of gifts that will be put under the tree. A simple, single snowflake conjures an entire white Christmas. Two glasses and a bottle of bubbly represent the new beginning of the year to come. Simple design allows the viewer to add their own vision.

Why do we love it? That ornament is wearing the same tube socks as Larry Bird wore in the 80’s. Why? I don’t know, but I like it.
What can you learn? No matter what you put out into the world, the viewers are going to see in it what they want. I’m guessing that the designer did not make this ornament as a tribute to Larry Bird, but that’s what I see. Get your stuff off the whiteboard and into your customer’s hands. Then listen to what they have to say about it.

Christmas Trees can Jump
Why do we love it? Every time that tree jumps, I hear a jingle in my head. Ring. Ding. Ring. Don’t try to mute, it’s not coming from the computer… It’s the Christmas spirit bubbling to the top.
What can you learn? Animated loops are super annoying, but sometimes hard to stop watching. Not really a practical lesson, but a lesson none-the-less.

Why do we love it? Expectations sometimes need to be broken. A slight change in perspective can tell a nice story. Or at least ensure a double take.
What can you learn? Small tweaks can change the entire image. Let me describe that image above. Overweight man in a red hat with a white ball. Oversized coat. Boots. Gloves. Christmas tree around his neck. Sounds like the Saint Nick you’d find at every mall across America. But when the boots are Timberlakes, the tree is a gold chain, and sun glasses get added, Santa becomes ‘different’. Don’t underestimate how small tweaks can change the entire picture.

Happy Holidays Everyone!
Why do we love it? Because Frosty the Snowman rocks. Nothing says happy holidays like the classics.
What can you learn? People are nostalgic. Don’t change for the sake of changing. Creating Frosty the Snow-Zombie might be cool (because who doesn’t love a good zombie), but Frosty the Snowman brings backs memories from childhood. Harness the power of nostalgia.
