30 Unique Halloween Color Palettes

October 10, 2013

Halloween is my favorite holiday. There are no gifts to worry about or uncomfortable family get-togethers (who wants to listen to Uncle Bob and Aunt June argue while 15 kids scream in the next room?), no snow to trudge through, and, really, no expectations other than to enjoy one’s self. And we get to pretend, dressing as our favorite characters (or our own creations), scary or funny; and telling ghost stories that still make us jump when things go bump in the dark. Candy for kids gives way to beer for adults, so unlike so many other holidays (Easter, I’m talking to you), Halloween gets cooler as we get older. Yeah, Halloween is cool. Know what else is cool? The following 30 unique Halloween color palettes, culled from ColourLovers. Each could serve as the perfect color scheme for your Halloween designs this year: posters, catalogs, postcards, banners and more. Since Halloween isn’t just fun, it’s incredibly profitable for many businesses; and just like so many costume contests, the key to winning Halloween marketing is standing out. Which Halloween color palette is your favorite?
