Festive Websites in 2015
Christmas is the perfect time for businesses to give their websites a festive makeover. From falling snowflakes, to glittery banners, seasonal changes can often make a huge difference. Whether it’s sunshine and sunbeds during the summer, or daffodils during spring, it’s always good to stand out from the rest. Looking for inspiration? Check out what we’ve discovered this Christmas.
Subtle and almost unnoticeable, Tesco didn’t go too crazy this festive season, and simply added large falling snowflakes to the background of their site. They also included a separate Christmas landing page, which offers a range of festive products, from decorations to toys.
This year, Aldi have wrapped up their site and popped a bow on top. Decorated head-to-toe with gold and silver snowflakes and baubles, Christmas has well and truly arrived at Aldi’s headquarters. Plus, on top of the aesthetic features, Aldi have pushed forward their festive treats to the homepage – including yummy seasonal recipes. Pass us the mince pies!
Ditching the glitz and snowflakes of a traditional festive takeover, Lidl have stripped back and featured children-style drawings of Santa in the background of their site. On top of this, they’ve also introduced bauble-shaped badges for all of their seasonal offers.
In-keeping with their modern brand, ASOS have ditched the traditional festive route, and gone for something a little sparklier. Simplistic, but colourful Christmas sketches fill the backgrounds of the homepage’s images, and a neon, flashing title banner features as the site’s main star.
To provide users with that added Christmassy experience, Topshop have introduced falling snow to their homepage. The snowflakes are fairly unobtrusive, allowing users to use the site easily and without interruption – clever stuff!
