Christmas Graphic Design Trends 2022

Christmas Graphic Design Trends

From Christmas cards to sales promotions and slapping a snowflake on everything you can think of. Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year… It might be time to start thinking about how you will make your graphic design a little bit more festive.  

We have come up with five tips on how you can create something a little more classy and engaging, not so garish. 

The moment you’ve all been waiting for: Here are 5 graphic design trends you can implement this Christmas:

1. Shine baby, shine!

Red and green were soo last year. 2022 graphic design trends are all about metallics! Bring your designs to life by incorporating a sprinkle of gold and silver to really compliment your classy creations. This is a great way to emphasise some aspects without creating something too predictable. Now I’m not saying you need to make everything shiny and gold, no no. But it can be a great way to add a pop of festiveness to your Christmas creations. 

2. Don’t Pick Just One Holiday

Spread the joy this festive season! It’s easy to get caught up in the rush of Christmas, as this is when we can see a boost in eCommerce website traffic. However, it is still important to show recognition for the other holidays throughout November and December. This is a great way to improve your customer relationship. It adds that personal touch to your marketing campaigns, and you can have fun exploring the different holidays with your Christmas graphic design trends. 

3. Festive Fun with Type

We all know that Christmas marketing can begin to look a bit samey-samey. So why not play around with your typography? Mix a few fonts together to create that perfect festive masterpiece. Combining cursive text and sans serif font can really help to draw the eye to specific areas of your design. 

Who doesn’t love a good pun? If it fits with your branding guidelines, then it could be a good idea to add a fun pun to your type. Stand out from the crowd and add a touch of humour to your Christmas designs. 

Yule love it!
