Holiday Design Trends

The holidays are upon us and we’re getting ready with the latest design trends that will capture the spirit of the season. Bluefish Designs, your go-to graphic design company, is here to guide you through these fun trends to make your spirits bright!


Sustainable & Eco-Friendly Designs As environmental awareness continues to grow, consumers are seeking eco-friendly options for their holiday celebrations. This trend is reflected in design choices as well. Consider incorporating sustainable and reusable elements into your holiday designs. This could include using recycled paper, designing with minimalist, nature-inspired themes, and opting for earthy color palettes. Eco-conscious consumers will appreciate your commitment to sustainability.

Retro Revival

Nostalgia is a powerful emotion and style that celebrates the past is always on trend. Think about incorporating elements of the '80s and '90s with bold colors, geometric shapes or feature vintage typography into your holiday creations. No matter the time period, retro designs invoke feelings of warmth and familiarity, making them perfect for holiday cards and promotional materials.

Hand-Drawn and Custom Illustrations The charm of hand-drawn and custom illustrations will stand out in a world full of digital designs. Personalized and unique illustrations can add a touch of warmth and authenticity to your holiday designs. Whether it's hand-drawn holiday scenes or custom caricatures of your team members, these illustrations can help create a connection with your audience.

Bold Typography Typography plays a vital role in design and bold, attention-grabbing fonts are in. Consider using oversized, fonts with a fun color palette to convey the holiday spirit in your designs. Make the font the main feature of your design for a striking impact.

Simple and Modern While bold and vibrant designs have their place, minimalist and modern design trends are still going strong. Simple, clean lines and ample white space can evoke a sense of elegance and sophistication in your holiday creations. Neutral color palettes and geometric shapes can create a timeless look that appeals to a broad audience. Edit the content in this column layout so people engage with your email.

Neo-Pastels and Moody Tones While pastels have always been popular during the holiday season, 2023 brings a twist with neo-pastels and moody color palettes. Neo-pastels are more vibrant and daring, while moody tones introduce depth and emotion to your designs. Combining these contrasting color schemes can create unique visual experiences that capture the holiday spirit in a fresh way.



Whether you choose to go green with sustainable designs, evoke nostalgia with retro themes, or mix several into one design, your holiday graphics will leave a lasting impression. The key is to connect everything back to your unique brand identity. Happy holidays and happy designing!
