Winter logo design is a type of logo design that incorporates elements and symbols of the winter season. It is a specific design style that is used by businesses, organizations, and individuals to represent their brand or identity during the winter months. Winter logos often use colors that are associated with the season, such as blues, whites, and grays, and may include imagery such as snowflakes, icicles, pine trees, or winter animals.
One important consideration when designing a winter logo is to avoid using too many clichéd or overused winter symbols, such as snowmen or Santa Claus. These symbols can make a logo appear generic and unoriginal. Instead, designers should aim to create a unique and memorable logo that stands out from the competition.
The purpose of winter logo design is to create a visual representation of a brand or organization that is tailored to the winter season. A winter logo design serves to communicate the values, message, and identity of a brand while also creating a sense of seasonality and timeliness.
During the winter months, many businesses and organizations offer seasonal promotions or launch new products that are specifically targeted toward the winter market. Winter logo design helps to differentiate these seasonal offerings from regular products and services and makes them more memorable and appealing to consumers.
Moreover, winter logo design helps businesses and organizations establish a connection with their target audience by tapping into the emotions and feelings associated with the winter season. For example, a winter sports brand may use a logo with imagery such as snowflakes, mountains, or ski tracks to evoke a sense of adventure, excitement, and adrenaline. Similarly, a winter fashion brand may use imagery such as snowflakes, ice crystals, or fur to convey a sense of luxury, elegance, and sophistication.
Here are some of the best winter logo design ideas you can reference from:
1. Winter House
Created by pobelens | https://dribbble.com/shots/16386749-Lineart-Winter-House-Logo
Black and white have always made a great option for a logo. Simple yet elegant. As the color imposes simplicity, the symbol put in the logo has also revealed the meaning of the logo itself. It is simply a house in a winter situation. This logo would be perfect to be put for rental housing companies. In winter, many people would love to spend their time with their families far from the city crowd. And this logo would just make your business elevate during the winter.
2. Steamboat Colorado
Created by Kyle Chicoine | https://dribbble.com/shots/6007605-Monoline-Snowflake
Another nice design of a winter logo is the Steamboat Colorado design. The dark color is still a powerful choice to impose the main symbol of a logo. Though not using black, using grey instead, the main symbol, which is a snowflake, has presented an elegant logo here.
3. Alfrey Davilla

Winter has been associated with Christmas. Therefore, this logo uses a Christmas tree as the main symbol for a winter logo design. The snow is represented by the dots that construct the leaves of the tree. The star should not be left as the top part of the tree.
4. Abominable Toys
Created by Milos Djuric | https://dribbble.com/shots/5806936-Abominable-Toys
The toys corporation has incorporated a winter animal as the symbol used in the logo design. The use of animals is an interesting choice since the target market is children. Many toys are in the form of an animal, so that’s why it has made a good choice.
5. Spoon & Spear
Created by Spoon & Spear | https://dribbble.com/shots/14430856-Winter-Deer
Spoon & Spear has created another interesting winter logo for you to choose from. The winter deer is chosen as the symbol used in the logo. The deers are also accompanied by the sparks and the snowflake as the details.

A simple logo with a deep but clear meaning is what a company tries to present to the audience. They tend to make it that way so that people easily remember the logo as the brand’s representative. This logo has two elements in it; simplicity and clarity. What else are you looking for?
7. BLUE FROST
Created by Casign | https://dribbble.com/shots/19039118-BLUE-FROST

8. Winter Solstice
Created by Ben Howes | https://dribbble.com/shots/4041125-The-Sound-of-Solstice
It’s quite an intriguing logo in that it involves the sun and the snowflake in a logo. You can see that half of the sun is used as a symbol. The color shows that it is shining brightly while the snowflakes are coming out of it. Very interesting idea, isn’t it?
9. Kelsey Malsom
Created by Kelsey Malsom | https://dribbble.com/shots/12248132-Chill-Out-Challenge
As it is a winter logo, you will be able to see a winter element as the symbol used; and this logo utilizes the snowflake as the main symbol. What makes it unique is that there is a stem of a snowflake which is similar to an arrow, and it moves forward to penetrate the snowflake itself. This arrow is in red as if there’s a threat from outside.
Created by Jahid Hasan | https://dribbble.com/shots/17227885-Klash-Mens-Apparel-Brand
You can see a man in a hoody jacket during winter, and there is the word “klash” in front of the picture. This is to tell you that this logo is for men’s winter outfits. Straightforward and easy to understand.
Created by monome | https://dribbble.com/shots/9148089-minimal-snowflakes
Monome created three types of snowflakes that you can use as the logo. Snowflakes have been associated with winter and have been used a lot as the symbol for winter logos. Here, you can find snowflakes in several colors and shapes. Suit yourself with one best fit your need.
Created by Darina Darvin | https://dribbble.com/shots/14878033-Icemaur
Not using modest colors for winter, the logo uses a pink gradient. Still uses the snowflakes as the symbol; Icemaur has been a nice option for a winter logo.
Created by Alejandro Ramirez | https://dribbble.com/shots/5421599-Wintercamp
The logo created by Alejandro Ramirez just represents a winter camp so well. Everything you need for a camp is used as the symbol, along with the snowflakes and the Christmas tree. All combined in a good message: a winter camp.
14. Winter Project
Created by Garagephic Studio | https://dribbble.com/shots/19933725-Winter-Project-logo-concept
All you see is just a letter W and the phrase “winter project.” But, as you see closely at the letter W, you will find three white Christmas trees there. This is what is so-called negative space, and the designer has used it very well in his creation.
15. WINTER CHRTIMAS MOMENT
Created by matthieumartigny | https://dribbble.com/shots/16851388-WINTER-LEAF-DOWN
It seems that the logo has a mis-spelling, but in fact, the spelling is just correct. Or the mis-spelling is done intentionally to get the people’s attention. In that case, it can be said that this is just a brilliant idea to play with words.
16. Winter Beer
Created by Lara Iskritskaya | https://dribbble.com/shots/18183457-Winter-Beer
Well, can you see the four glasses in the symbol? During all the combinations of the eight stems from snowflakes, the four glasses symbolize the beer glass. Pretty impressive, right?
17. Ethan Fender
Created by Ethan Fender | https://dribbble.com/shots/15000385-Winter-Postcard-2021

Created by Milos Djuric | https://dribbble.com/shots/8863007-Frosty
Who knows that a winter logo can be used for a beverage logo? Well, you should check this one, then! Organic arctic ice tea has used the logo with a winter theme for the product. It has a penguin, a polar animal wearing a scarf, and bringing a flag as the main symbol of the logo. The orange as the background color gives the relieving feeling of thirst after you drink the product.
19. Winter Animal
Created by Lelevien | https://dribbble.com/shots/19372343-Winter-Animal-Logo-Design
This logo is probably created by environmentalists who are concerned about the decreasing number of winter animals. The logo is created in a simple way where you can see the silhouette of a winter bear with snowflakes, and the word winter animal follows.
20. Frosted Season
Created by Jessie Maisonneuve | https://dribbble.com/shots/19939664-It-s-Begun
Unlike other logos, which mostly utilize the elements of winter as the symbol, this logo works much on the typography and the style. It just presents the word “Frosted” with certain fonts, and every letter is styled as if it has ice flakes. On some letters, there are also white dots that show the snow is there.
Created by Alghifari Zahran | https://dribbble.com/shots/17239873-ColdRein
Blue is one color that has been associated with coolness. Winter or snowflakes are commonly shown in white or blue. This logo also applies blue as the main color. The snowflake is held by the nerve to show that it can handle the cool.
Created by Leo | https://dribbble.com/shots/3993724-Snowflake-logo-icon
Snowflake that is used in the previous logos discussed appears in several ways but still show the form of common snowflakes. This logo has also imposed a snowflake as the main symbol but in a different way. It doesn’t appear in ordinary snowflake shape or form, but it has the same line as the snowflake. It takes several times to think about it and, of course, someone with great creativity and imagination.
23. Grippies Tires
Created by Jessie Maisonneuve | https://dribbble.com/shots/19947233-Grippies-Tires-Ad
Wintertime could be very hard for drivers. The road they should take could be very slippery, and therefore they need grippy tires so that they won’t slip. As you can see, the logo is here. Every picture tells you immediately what the corporation is doing. It promotes grippy tires for customers during the winter time.
24. November Badge
Created by Ethan Fender | https://dribbble.com/shots/16930567-November-Badge
If you need a November badge, then you should pin a snowflake as the symbol of the badge. November is when people welcome the winter. So start from this month, people should be ready for the cool weather. And this logo is just telling what it is bluntly.
25. Arctic Animation
Created by Milos Djuric | https://dribbble.com/shots/7209524-Arctic-Animation
Milos Djuric has created a fun winter logo design by using animation. Instead of using a snowflake or Christmas tree, he uses an igloo as the symbol. The igloo is placed in outer space with a space helmet complete with a flag on the top part.
26. Polar Vortex
Created by Joshua Gille | https://dribbble.com/shots/5941830-Polar-Vortex
As the name suggested, you can see the snowflake is in a vortex in this logo. It doesn’t give any more detail but plays a lot in the symbol itself as the solo element shown in the logo, the purple as the background, has just highlighted the white color in the symbol. Clear and simple.
27. December Badge
Created by Ethan Fender | https://dribbble.com/shots/17121203-December-Badge
If November is the starting point of the winter, then December is the most loveable month of all. It’s not necessarily for the winter, but it’s for the Christmas celebration. Therefore, in this logo badge, you see a lot of Christmas trees. Ethan Fender has also put green as the main color to show the peace that Christmas brings.
28. Winter Deer
Created by Garasigrafis | https://dribbble.com/shots/20036837-Winter-Deer
This logo is designed by Garasigrafis. While you see that many logos with winter themes are created in white, blue, and green, this logo applies different colors to the design. It merely uses white and red as the color in work. A little bit of grey shadow is also applied but only used as a complementary. The deer’s horns and the letters are all in red, with some white dots applied to represent the show. Although it doesn’t present moderate winter color, still, this work is really a piece of art.
Created by Badr | https://dribbble.com/shots/19083907-coldblox
This logo is perfect to be the representation of a remote area that is quite far away from others. The cold is represented by the snowflake made in a hexagon shape. And the blocks are represented by the part of snowflakes that are connected to one another. The right picture just shows you how far they are from other areas.
Created by Deividas Bielskis | https://dribbble.com/shots/17967907-Aisberg
You know that an iceberg has grown from a deep sea to its surface. What you see on the surface is just the tip of the ice which grows much larger inside the water. You can see it from the symbol used in the logo, can’t you? The tip on top is smaller than the one underwater. While the word “Aisberg” is just a styled word to attract people. This word is actually meaning “iceberg” itself. It’s a nice word-playing so that people will recall it easily.
