Our new holiday themes and the artists who made them.
Every year we make a Linktree theme for the holidays. This year, we’re feeling super grateful, so we upped it to four.
How did we manage to create four free themes?
Well, we didn’t.
We commissioned four incredible creators to design themes that represent what the holidays mean to them. These talented artists crafted four of our favorite themes ever. And we’re not just saying that.
Let’s take a look.
Dreyfus has been on our radar for a while now, her weird and wonderful characters ooze happiness and joy. Her art style focuses on chunky technicolor characters and scenery that would feel at home in Alice in Wonderland or on the cover of a late 60s psychedelic rock album. We asked Dreyfus where she drew inspiration from for her holiday theme:
My favorite part about the holidays are making and surprising friends with gifts, and baking holiday treats. For this piece, I drew a lot of inspiration from vintage cartoon classics like ‘How The Grinch Stole Christmas’ and ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’
And she nailed it, we’d wear this pattern on our pajamas.
Should Linktree start making pajamas? Let us know.
Georgia May Designs
Georgia is a prolific illustrator and pattern designer. Her hand-crafted and calming aesthetic makes you want to cosy up on the couch with your pet. Her holiday theme was exactly what we hoped for – it’s festive but not in your face. It’s like that one house on the street that has the perfect tasteful wreath. You can almost smell the nutmeg, cinnamon and toasted marshmallows. Here’s what she said:
Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year. It’s a time to give, celebrate, and share that wonderful feeling of warmth and joy (and eat one too many mince pies haha!)
Apply her theme if you’re also into mince pies, they are one of the most misunderstood and underappreciated pie formats in the world.
Rocio Egio is a fascinating designer that our design team have been crushing hard on for a while. Her style is all about limitations – with a limited color palette and simple 2D geometric forms, she manages to create incredibly rich and compelling pieces of art. Her theme reflects her style and this time of year perfectly – it makes you feel like a kid at the Christmas dinner table again.
Personally, “All I want for Christmas is food”. I love food, recipes, grandmothers' cooking tips and sharing moments around the table with friends and family. Food brings people together and spreads joy. In this special year, where many of us won't be able to gather with the family, food and our mum’s recipes will be a bite of home. Have a delicious holiday amigos!
Anyone else hungry after reading that?
Speaking of feeling like a kid again, Katie Benn’s style is straight out of a home-made coloring book. Katie’s style is childlike, idyllic and free. We love the way she moves between digital and physical mediums in her work. Pixels or pastels, we love it all. When we reached out to Katie to help us celebrate the holidays with a theme, we were brimming with excitement and anticipation to see what she would deliver!
I recently relocated from San Francisco to an old farm in the country. So far, every day, I encounter a family of deer walking out onto the property and wandering around, eating grass, laying in the yard. Sometimes they just take a seat and watch whatever you're doing- they're so sweet. Even in the snow, they seem so content, so calm, taking care of each other. When I was thinking of ideas for the holiday theme I knew I wanted it to be all about the deer.
This lovely theme has an equally lovely story to go along with it.
These themes are available to all Linktree users, free or PRO, come one come all. The holidays are about giving, and these themes are no different, we give them all to you. Make sure you bless your followers with a little festive treat by applying them to your Linktree today.
And show these incredible artists some support! Happy holidays!
