We understand that these are major brands with major budgets, we’re not suggesting that you need to create a full scale video production. We are suggesting though, that you spend some real time thinking about how you can make your brand stand out during a season when new campaigns and promotions are being pushed on consumers in a constant stream.

What do these campaigns do successfully that would be beneficial for you as an emerging designer to keep in mind when creating holiday look books or promotions?

  • Give a new take on a holiday classic, differentiating their brand from other more traditional seasonal promotions.
  • Show customers and followers a fresh and possibly unexpected side of the brand, whether it is a new collection or cool new service.
  • Tell a story about the holidays that is unique to their brand and reinforces brand voice.
