Spectacular Holiday Typography


The Holidays are finally here. The hustle and bustle of Christmas is very obvious as the malls and stores are packed out with last-minute shoppers searching for presents to give away to the friends and loved ones. Christmas is in about 24 hours (here in Long Beach), and the new year is just around the corner.

Here at Design Informer, we want to say:

“Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”

But we don’t just want to say it in a regular way. We wanted to greet you in a typographic way. Here’s 40 different holiday-themed, typographic designs that we have gathered to relay our greetings to you. Merry Christmas!

    I love 4 & 7, but all the images are awesome. Some great food for thought, now I wish I’d had time to make some beautiful typography-based Christmas cards! Oh well, always next year :)

  9. 12

    A stunning collection of typography. They are all fascinating. The last one on the list has a very cool grunge texture. Reminds of the old coca-cola Christmas adverts. I also like the complementary colours in #3. It is simple but effective.

    This post is a fantastic source of inspiration. Thanks and Merry Christmas Jad!

    Oh yes this was what I was looking for….I’m creating a festive flash game and I’m definitely going to use the Grinch Text for font inspiration….thanks!

    Just received this in the mail – type, fun and so holiday-like


  15. 22

    Huge fan of typography and out of all of them #3 grabbed the spot of being my favorite. Great collection.

    • 23

      Lot’s of people love #3. I guess it’s because of the clever way it was displayed mixed with the simplicity of the design and the colors used. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us David.

  16. 24

    What a wonderful collection of awesome graphics!
    Thank you so much to add mine (#14) to the list.

    Beeing in one collection with names like James White and Nik Ainley is a perfect christmas present! :)

    Have some nice holidays,
    best wishes from germany, Oliver

    Hello Jad,

    Once more from the Middle East: Really nice work and as you can see on this page, everybody from different places on the planet loved your artwork.

    Just one “web” thing: Please change links to open a new pages in new tabs to avoid pressing “back” for returning to this page.

    I really enjoyed visiting your site.

      Hey Mounes, thanks for the compliment.

      Thank you for your suggestion, it’s a great one. Unfortunately, I used to have it that way and more people said that they don’t like new windows and would rather stay on the same window. :)

  23. 35

    Simply amazing! Thanks for the collection. Sometime I wonder on average how long does it take those talented artists to create one. I think it would take me forever for one letter, let alone a single word. Have a blessed Christmas and a Happy New year!
