Let your logo spread the joy of the holidays.
Your logo can speak volumes about your brand and its message to the consumers. Your logo reflects professionalism and quality and is the window into the culture that your company is built upon.
Give your logo a holiday theme, give it a subtle little holiday vibe by coloring it with regards to the holiday palette as opposed to your traditional color scheme. Have some holiday fun and adorn your logo in holiday icons such as holly berries, snowman, or a pumkin.
The key is subtlety, take note that your logo is one of your brand’s identity. You don’t want your logo to be so into the holiday spirit that is beyond recognition. Have fun and have a go at the seasonal design trends and elements but don’t forget to have your brand’s voice still be heard amongst the santa hats and snowflakes.
