An Awesome Caravan of Winter Themed Artwork

Read Time:2 minsLanguages:

Winter is here and the days are getting colder and colder. As designers, whether on purpose or not, we all tend to get inspired by what's going on outside the window. Ice and snow particularly play a big role when inspiring creatives all over the world, and ultimately inspire us to bring winter themed ideas to life.

We have collected some great print and advertisement design work. With it we have compiled this beautiful showcase. Do you get inspired by the wintery weather? Let us know!

Winter-Themed Designs

The following selection of artwork uses some incredible and obvious techniques to present a wintery theme. Each and every piece of artwork in one way or another use snow in their work, apart from one (the Evian Water Advertisement piece). Another thing a lot of the designers have incorporated in their designs is subtle grunge and noise, such as: 'Ski Poster', 'Shh...Festival 08 Poster' and 'Winter Frost New Years Eve Ball Poster'.

Not So Obvious Winter Themed Artwork

The selection of posters below use wintery elements in their designs that aren't quite so obvious as the ones that were shown in the previous section. The Nokia 7610 Poster, for example, combines a cold, wintery landscape with a hot, lava themed landscape. Other artwork in this section does include snow, just not in such an obvious way; it is either very discrete or just simply isn't noticed as well because of other focal points such as the horizon in the 'Looming on the Horizon Poster'.
