10 Companies With Clever Holiday Logos

The holidays are a time for family and togetherness, and companies love to be part of the holiday magic. Though companies worldwide adapt their logos for the holidays, these ten take it to the next level, often modifying their already simple logo to be perfect for the holidays.

Google

If you’ve spent any time searching and surfing the web, chances are that you’ve also used Google. One of the most popular search engines on the internet, the brand name “Google” has become a verb all in itself. Google is also known for regularly creating new logos for its site. The holidays are no different. This one features the company’s name adorned in festive lights for the Christmas season.

Starbucks

Starbucks’ new holiday cups are a marker for the winter season for the coffee faithful. Generally beginning at the beginning of November, these coffee cups are different each year. For the 2021 season, this coffee giant utilized the green tone of their already Christmas ready logo and fashioned the rest of the cup in designs of white to match the lid, red, and even pink. The four-cup options perfectly complement the green siren logo.

Radio City Rockettes

Each year, the Radio City Rockettes put on a holiday celebration of music and dancing at the infamous Radio City Music Hall in New York. Their simple logo is bright red and emblematic of a marquee you might spot in the city. They even feature their primary sponsor, Chase, in their logo. Unfortunately, the Radio City Rockettes had their season cut short due to the global pandemic this year. Still, fans of all ages look forward to seeing the snow next year.

Coca-Cola

Coca-Cola is a worldwide brand of soft drinks. They are nearly just as synonymous with Santa Clause and Santa’s reindeer. The marking design of using the likeness of Santa alongside the red field of the Coca-Cola logo makes this one stand out without changing anything with the original logo. Coca-Cola will use this premise throughout the holiday season. Santa will appear drinking an ice cold coca-cola in many commercials.

Facebook

Social Media has become a pastime and an essential means of communication for many people. As a result, Facebook, the social media giant, also regularly redesigns its logo for the holidays. A company that caters to people worldwide, Facebook generally keeps its logo more neutral in terms of the holidays, opting instead to reflect on the snowy season.

Target

Target is a popular big-box retailer known for having everything one may need and then some. So a casual stroll around Target, Starbucks in hand, is a fabulous way to spend a bit of an afternoon. And for a store with everything, it is convenient that this logo doesn’t take much to redesign its already iconic logo to make it festive. The logo becomes a wreath, snowy white and bright for the season against a red door.

Kohls

Kohls is another big box store that makes their logo for the holidays. Kohl’s sells clothes for all ages, toys, home goods, jewelry, cosmetics, and even small appliances. They are known for having great deals and offering customers plenty of ways to save in their stores. One of those primary ways is through Kohl’s Cash, which is the initiative highly featured here. The brand name appears in an ornament as the “O” in the second “joy.” The red and bright green colors make this logo feel exciting and festive.

Linkedin

Linkedin is a social media site for those looking to network or even find work. Often Linkedin will redesign its logo for the holidays. In this redesign, they make their usually blue box a gift and put the “in” over it. This clever redesign maintains the shape of the original Linkedin design while also innovating for the season.

YouTube

YouTube is a social media site that allows users to upload videos and interact with content creators. This design is similar to the Linkedin one because they also took the gift box idea and made it the backdrop for the “tube” part of their name. The orange bow is a clever choice to offset the red box and is a nice change from the typical green and red redesigns many companies choose.

UPS

As an essential shipper of gifts, it perhaps comes as no surprise that UPS features a gift in their design. This one is simple and straightforward, even maintaining the brown and mustard colors typically part of the UPS logo.
