13 Halloween T-shirt design ideas to both inspire and terrify you

13 Halloween T-shirt design ideas to both inspire and terrify you

Our design team were apparently way too busy this week to help with my "Halloween Design Inspo" blog post, so instead they let me have a go on our stock photo account - and what a thrill that turned out to be.

The world of stock imagery is a weird and wonderful place to say the least; a cavernous vat of artwork ranging from the banal to the downright bizarre. Perfect for a Halloween-themed post then...

It started out innocently enough: I actually managed to find some pretty tasteful stuff but then stumbled across a few creatures that I thought were too creepy not to throw into the Kite product generator.

So, without further ado, here are 13 wicked t-shirt designs guaranteed to get your brain juices flowing (...muahaha ok one Halloween reference too far perhaps).


I kicked off my new-found design career with some neat hipster/Halloween hybrids... Urban Outfitters holla at me.

I also had a go at making some (really) lazy Halloween costumes...

And then I came across this... What is even going on here? Is that a potato?

"Kill.... me......"

Bringin' it back with some post-ironic Clip Art appreciation, Windows '98 styley:

And some completely non-ironic appreciation for this fierce-yet-glamorous bat-kitty:

Anyway, it turns out things can get pretty weird if you start exploring the '3D' tag...
