Leveraging Logos in Emails with Festal Branding
Have you ever imagined the power of the logo of your brand?
It has the wherewithal to form a lasting impression of your brand. And isn’t that essential?
According to studies, our brain processes images 60,000 times faster than words and that’s exactly what the largest search engine company – Google – has made best use of.
Google is known for its quirky and interactive designs and doodles around its logo. It all started in 1998 when the logo doodle concept was born after Google founders Larry and Sergey played around with their corporate logo to indicate their attendance at the Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert.
Google’s doodles are created with various modifications and humorous features, which change around holidays, birthdays of famous people, and major events. It has been observed that over the time, demand for doodles in logos has risen.
The Monks take you on an exciting journey through various brand emails and their unique email templates, which give a glimpse of the festal/occasional elements within their logo, enhancing the brand email design.
BRAND: AMERICAN EAGLE OUTFITTERS
- This fantastic email was designed by American Eagle for the Halloween season.
- Keeping the theme in mind, the classic ‘flying eagle’ in their logo has been replaced with a ‘flying bat’.
- The color of the logo has also been changed – incorporating the orange tinge of the traditional Halloween pumpkin.
- These little changes make the email more appealing as it adapts certain elements without hampering the brand image, rather enhancing it.
BRAND: JACK THREAD

- The tiny cap on the logo adds a fun element along with keeping the basic logo design intact.
- The colors and font of the logo have not been changed.

- The GIF in the logo is an innovative way to surprise and engage subscribers.
- Tradesy very smartly captures the fall season within its logo in the email.

Brand logos are impressionable, accepted. But they are also what can make you reach out to a greater mass. By being unique in your approach and experimenting a little, you can learn, succeed, and enjoy what you do.
