Now that the best holiday Halloween is out of the way, with its pumpkins, costumes and candy, we can spend some downtime with family and friends. It’s time to make way for shopping, gift giving (and receiving!), baking and eating, as we usher out 2011 and welcome 2012. There are only 44 days until the start of a the new year and only 37 sleeps until Santa.

To help you source images for all of your Chrismahanukwanzakah-related projects, such as greeting cards, holiday e-cards, mailers or company newsletters, we’ve gathered some of our favourite Holiday images into a lightbox (we call them ‘collections’).

If you use any of our images in your work, we’d love to see what you’ve created. Send us a .JPG or PDF of your design with a brief description of your project and we’ll feature it on our blog.

If you want to find additional images for your holiday campaigns, try broad seasonal searches, such as WinterChristmas or New Year’s or search for themes like holiday, harvest, or family.

This is Halloween

From sparkly fairy princesses to sparkly vampires (Edward!), from foggy nights to creatures howling at the moon, from candy corn to jack-o’-lanterns — I can honestly say Halloween is my favourite holiday – and has been since I was a kid. (Yes, really. Even better than waiting for Santa.) Oh and plus there’s chocolate!

To help you celebrate the season and create any Halloween-related projects, be they flyers, blog posts, mailers or web banners, we’ve gathered some of our favourite Halloween related images into a collection.

If you use any of our images in your work, we’d love to see what you’ve created. Send us a .JPG or PDF of your design with a brief description of your project and we could feature it on our blog.

If you prefer less spooky images this time of year, look for seasonal images of Autumn or Thanksgiving. (Or Spring, if you’re in the southern hemisphere.)

Midsummer Night’s Dream

What will you discover on a moonlit night in a wooded grove not far from fairy land? Will Puck trick you into believing what you see? Or will you make your dreams come true?

Dream with us this midsummer as we feature woodlands, fields, fairy children, sunlit groves and ethereal scenes. Our latest collection draws from the imagery of the famous play by William Shakespeare. We hope you find it as magical and inspiring as we do.

It’s a fun trend, so bring some outdoor life to your designs! We’ve found the best bees, butterflies and other bugs in our collection and put them together in this lightbox. We’re hoping the images we’ve picked bring some creative inspiration for your own design projects.

If you use any of our images, we’d love to see what you’ve created. Send us a .JPG or PDF of your design with a brief description of your project and we could feature it on our blog.

If you prefer birds to bugs, you can check out our collection featuring our feathered friends. And stay tuned — We’ll be back with more of the natural world with green, growing things: flowers, fruits, veggies and all things botanical.

It’s also a huge trend now to incorporate birds, animals, plants and even insects into your designs.

From greeting cards and shopping bags to linens and wallpaper, birds are flying everywhere in both product design and interior decorating! It’s a trend that’s been covered on many blogs and interior design magazines over the past few months.

Inspired by this quirky (and funny!) video from Portlandia, we put together a collection featuring our favourite flying friends in this lightbox for you to use as inspiration in your own designs.
