7 Wondrous Holiday Designs

I’ve been hankering for some creative holiday designs since I first heard Bing Crosby’s sultry voice singing “White Christmas” this year—which, to be fair, was back in mid-November.

My search for creative holiday designs didn’t last long. On the contrary, I found a seemingly endless array of gorgeous illustrations, package designs, greeting card designs and more after only a short journey.

In case you’re similarly afflicted by holiday cheer, enjoy these wonderfully creative holiday designs:

Package Design for Robot Roy, the Nutcracker Toy

By Robot Food robot-food.com

“For Christmas 2014, we gave our clients something fun, festive and worth making room for on the mantelpiece. We’d hesitate to call ourselves a traditional agency but we do love a traditional Christmas. So we gave our clients, family and friends a festive wooden nutcracker. With a robotic twist. Robot Roy is hand-painted in primary colours and he’s packaged in an impressive bespoke black box made from Ebony Colorplan, with an in-house illustrated design. The 50 limited edition boxes are finished in a luxurious gold foil and sealed with a numbered sticker. Cracking.”
