Halloween design elements are on trend this season and we all know why! It is because Halloween is just around the corner. This is a season where a lot of website design updates are conceptualized and updated. Now, as designers, we all know this is a big holiday for children, just like Christmas. Depending on the owner of the website, designers may be required to change up a few design themes or elements.
Especially within a kid-friendly website, designers are surrounded by endless options on the internet, thankfully. There are also so many design tools available for use as well. Every designer needs to ready their collections for this event since a lot of websites require rapid changes between October and January.
Designing for Halloween is always fun and exciting for many web designers. Websites during this time require new landing pages, electronic invites, sales promotions, banner designs, and more. Choosing a color palette, an overall theme, and a “spook-level”, creating kid-friendly Halloween design elements is always a challenge.
Since it is more a holiday for children (costume wearing and trick or treating), commercialized Halloween is cute and kid-friendly most of the time. Now the thing is when designing for kid-friendly websites non-spooky designs are a huge requirement. A lot of the design elements need to be cute but still with the intention of a slight spook. It is always a challenge to turn horrifying stuff into kid-friendly designs, but it has been done commercially since Halloween became a holiday for children. The great thing is, there is a lot of inspiration available everywhere.
Here are some examples of Halloween design elements and samples you could check out to be inspired for your kid-friendly Halloween-themed website:
