The peak sales of Christmas and New Year vectors usually commence at the end of November and last through December. Now is just about the right time to add holiday images to your portfolios.
Every year people buy images of Christmas trees, bright Christmas decorations and Santa Clauses. Are they really expecting something brand new from thousands of vector designers? Actually yes, because every year design trends change. For example, last year "Origami Style" images were popular. Some new trends appeared this year, so let's talk about them. Here is what was popular in 2012:
- Retro, 50's style Christmas cards made using vintage fonts. As a rule, such cards don't have bright colors but rather nature colors. People still mail Christmas cards to family and friends even though e-mail is used more often. That's why such images are still popular.
- The most popular colors for holiday vectors are red and gold. For example, a golden jingle bell with a red background. However, the combination of red and green remains the traditional Christmas colors.
- Holiday humor is also popular. People have always liked funny images with amusing characters; that's why they eagerly buy these types of vectors.
