Eightyone Design Logo

Tis the season! Yes it’s that special time of year again where vector snowflakes, christmas trees and stockings are in abundance in the design world! There’s no escape from the festive look and by now it feels like they have been around for too long (especially since Christmas seems to start in September)! 

We thought we’d share our Christmas card design for this year with you and get your thoughts.

We want our Christmas card to be a reminder of us and therefore be quite strongly branded. We always have our contact details on the reverse and our logo repeated a couple of times.

Last years card was really quite simple as we wanted to really push the logo. We went with a silver snowflaked logo on white with our company green in the centre to add some spark to the card.

This year we have gone for a similar design, however we didn’t want to utilise the logo as the main focus. We therefore experimented with several design concepts incorporating our branding with a Christmas element – we tried everything from snow men to christmas puddings! We finally decided on this bauble design, which we feel does liken itself to our logo (if you turn your head counter clockwise – the smaller bauble the top of the eight and the bigger logo the bottom?).

We explored several colour combinations but felt that the ligher silver colour followed on well from last year and had a stronger ‘christmassy’ feel.

The inside of the card was left white as we felt the strong green background may be a little too overpowering with the silver front. We inserted our logo with “Merry Christmas” above and below the logo we replaced “eightyone” with “everyone”.

The back of the card holds our contact details and logo repeated again. 

Overall we are really please with the card and think that it reflects our branding and style as well as looking ‘Christmassy’!

Do you like the card? Did we go with the right colour choice or do you prefer one of the other options?
