The Holiday Season is upon us! Time for Joy, Giving, Friends, Family and if you’re a designer.
Sales, Promos, Designs, More Promos, Mailout’s, Flyers, Advent Calendars! You name it and it came across my desk in the past 3 weeks.
But as I am about ready to settle into my long Christmas weekend, I thought it a great time to get my first official blog post up and running, complete with ridiculous Santa face swap.
Let’s Be honest here, what good is a Graphic Designer who can’t do a decent face swap?
Alright, I may not actually be Santa but I think the look works. I might have to work on my beard game!
On to the Tips
#5 – Go Easy on the Turkey
There’s fun and excitement abound all holiday season, the last thing you want is to end up in a turkey coma. We all look forward to the time off work to spend with Friends and Family, and Loved ones.
#4 – Be Nice to each other
I say Christmas a bunch in this post because that’s what I celebrate, but it’s the Holiday Season and lots of people celebrate lots of different things. It’s important to remember that this is a time of happiness, joy and just being nice.
#3 – Have fun
Days off work, school, or just being done with exams for a while, the Holiday Season is a great time to go out and do something fun, whether that’s Sledding, Snowmobiling, or (shameless plug) playing Laser Tag, it’s important to be active and enjoy the company of others.
#2 – Start a Project
We’ve all got that one thing on our plate that we keep saying “I’ll get that done when I have some free time”! Well that time is now, you have a few days off, there’s nothing to stress about, work isn’t until Monday. Use some of that extra relaxing to dive into that project you’ve just been dying to start.
#1 – Thoughtful Gifts are better
Anyone can go out and get a Giftcard, shirt, or pair of socks. It takes only a little more effort to really put some thought in, and make something yourself. A homemade card or item is a great way to show appreciation and usually only costs a little bit of your time.
