Tis’ the season for gift giving, tree decorating and of course festive web designing! With Christmas creeping up on us we thought it would be a great time to talk about how you can make your existing web design a little more festive. So whether you’re a coding extraordinaire or a less technical web design enthusiast we have something for you that can spice up your website this Christmas!
Subtle snow flurries
This is the easiest one to implement, especially if you have WordPress. All you have to do is get the Snow Flurry WordPress plugin and activate it! The best thing about this plugin is actually not it’s simple set-up but the amount of choices it gives you when choosing your flurry. You can completely customise your snow in size, speed, colour and frequency. So you can go from a full on blizzard to gentle sleet. The choice is yours. However, if you don’t have WordPress but have access to your website’s code you can always add in some snowy HTML yourself.
Christmas landing pages
This festive idea is a little trickier than the last however not because it’s technically demanding but just because it may take some time. Come up with a Christmas concept that you can showcase as a page on your website. Maybe design it like a Christmas card, create a North Pole inspired photo of your office or even use your mailing list as a chance to get on Santa’s “good” list. Whatever it is make it creative and personal to your company.
Give your logo a festive twist
This is probably the most difficult idea to implement, however it is definitely the most fun too. Open up your company logo in whatever image editing software you like be it Illustrator, InDesign or even a cloud based software. Once you’ve got it open, try out a few different ideas like turning one of your letters into a candy cane or adding a little waving snowman on the end. Do whatever you like to make your logo a little more festive, just make sure that you don’t eliminate the meaning of your brand.
