10 Haunted Designs for Halloween Phrases

October 28, 2013

When Halloween comes around, spooky phrases abound. Some phrases, or popular sayings, have to do with Halloween itself; others are more general, yet embody spooky connotations that creep us out and are often recited around Halloween. I wanted to see how graphic designers represented some such phrases; thus, for your inspiration, I give you 10 haunted designs inspired by Halloween phrases.
