The most creative, non-cliché Halloween designs from our community this year (so far)

skeletons, skulls, voodoo dolls, blood-splatter patterns, and more creative-creepy artwork

We know, we know — it’s not Halloween yet. But we’re already seeing Halloween-inspired designs from our creative community, so we wanted to highlight some of the best.

Last year, we rounded up the ABCs of Halloween design — from apple picking to zombies. Maybe that’s why this year, we’re focusing away from from the usual pumpkins and witch hats. Instead, we’ve curated a few of our favorite designs on the darker side of the holiday season: skeletons, skulls, voodoo dolls, blood-splatter patterns, and more creative-creepy artwork.

From vector patterns and digital artwork to PhotoShop actions and fonts, here’s a few designs that have caught our attention so far:
