25 Unique Halloween Color Palettes

October 25, 2015

image[72] If you’re charged with crafting an attention-getting Halloween poster, postcard or other marketing tool, one way you can make your design stand out is to incorporate a creative color palette into your artwork. The key is to find a balance between tradition and creativity; orange, black, and other autumn hues are traditional Halloween colors, after all, and if you eschew them completely you risk losing a visual component customers identify with the holiday. A better strategy is to give tradition a twist: a new hue of orange, for example, or unexpected complementary colors. For your inspiration, the following lists 25 unique Halloween color palettes featuring unique hues and complementary colors you can use in your own Halloween designs.
