Hey there, Vectornators!

Halloween is just around the corner, and we’ve been conjuring up some spooky design treats just for you.

From horror-inspired color palettes to bat-themed wallpapers, these digital assets are nothing to be afraid of. They’re available to download for free and use on any design project. So, when you’re not out at the Halloween party, why not spend a creative night in with Vectornator?

Check out the design files below, and don’t forget to tag us on social media with your creepy creations.

“Carve” a Pumpkin Face from an Illustration

If you’re a fan of spooky season, you probably have your jack-o'-lantern designs all planned out. But if you don’t want to deal with the mess of carved-out pumpkin pulp this year, why not enjoy creating a digital pumpkin illustration instead?

This fantastic pumpkin Illustration by the lovely Nastya is available to download for free. You can play around with it in Vectornator and use our tools to cut out a creepy face. It’s totally up to you to decide on the shapes for the cut-out eyes, nose, and mouth, so download it below and get creative!

Horror Movie Color Palettes

It’s no secret that color can have an impact on our psychology. That’s why film makers and cinematographers often use color palettes as a tool for setting the mood and provoking certain emotions from their audiences. This is especially the case for horror films, where color is often used to captivate the viewer and elicit a whirl of emotions.

With this in mind, we gathered some of the best colors from horror classics and created downloadable color palettes. You can download them below, import them into Vectornator, and use them in any of your designs.

The Shining

Who ever has watched this movie surely has this scene engraved in their memories. The intense hues in the geometric carpet combined with the blue in Danny's sweater create an interesting color combo for any spooky design. ✨

Midsommar

Unsettling, yet bright and colorful, Midsommar can get to your head like no other movie. Grab the flowery colors here, but don’t let your guard down around this one! 🌻

Beetlejuice

Another one of the classics. Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice definitely has its own garish twist of the undead. Use with caution 🪲

Hocus Pocus

Okay, so Hocus Pocus isn’t so scary, but we couldn’t leave out the ‘90s Halloween classic. The comedic trio of villainous witches—Mary, Winnie, and Sarah—wear fall-colored costumes that create an eerie, yet playful color palette.

Bat Backgrounds

Didn’t have time to buy decorations this year? You can still celebrate Halloween in the digital realm.

Our super-talented in-house designer Júlia Aragon created these spooky patterns that you can download and use as wallpapers on your phone. Plus, each file reveals every layer of each festive background, so you can see how she created them. You could even play around with her designs and change the colors. If you don't want to use these designs as wallpapers, you could use them for party invitations, or transform one into an elaborate spooky scene.

If you’d like to learn how to create a background with bats yourself, Júlia will be sharing her process via a video tutorial later this week, so keep an eye out on our social media channels.

We hope you’ll enjoy these free design treats. If you haven’t downloaded Vectornator yet, get it here and start working on your Halloween-inspired design projects. We can’t wait to see what you create!
