As autumn settles in October it brings an aura of gloom and mystery, which adds to the spirit of Halloween. Many find a way to celebrate. Adults and kids both shop excitedly for costumes and prepare to carve pumpkins while horror movies are showcased on TV throughout the week. Online, many webmasters update their sites with seasonal themes, Social media accounts update their backgrounds and search engines put up special Halloween logos to mark the holiday.
At LogoDesignGuru, we too are welcoming the spirit of Halloween and are ready for some trick or treats! This year, we thought of bringing you something a little difference. Today we are highlighting some popular Halloween characters through logo design. From black cats to ghosts, we will tell you what significance these images hold as we showcase today’s logo design collection.
None of these logos are directly related to Halloween; however we find the indirect connection rather interesting. Don’t you think? See for yourself.
The Scary Black Cat
The black cat is a popular symbol of witchcraft and paranormal activities. In early European eras, witches were thought to turn into cats after they were executed. The sneaky nature of cats, their ability to see spirits and their connection with the dark world, keeps the black cat as one of the most intriguing figures of this time of year.
Although there are all sorts of cat logo inspirations — but tough, independent and mysterious – the black cat represents all these traits and makes for an interesting Halloween logo design collection.
The Mysterious Black Birds, Owls & Bats
Birds like ravens and owls have been associated with witches, evil, bad luck and bad omens for centuries. The raven is known to be a mysterious bird and one that harbors souls of the dead. The owl is known for its terrifying hoots in the dark, bringing a bad omen. The bat is seen as a creature of the night and is used as a classic symbol for Dracula and other vampires.
Strong and fearless, the image of a bird generally represents freedom, while the owl and bat represent intellect and mystery.
The Cackling Witch
Historically Halloween had nothing to do with witches as it was meant to be an “All Souls Day.” However, after the hundreds of executions of witches in the European era, they were thought to have haunted the Earth, bringing evil.
Witches are used as a symbol of magic and mystery in logo designs.
The White Ghost and Spirits
One of the most popular symbols of Halloween is the white ghost. It is a popular belief that spirits are white in color which is why many children dress up in white clothes (typically a sheet) to represent ghosts.
The images of ghosts most commonly represent mystery and fear in logo design. Want these elements for your brand? Create a great logo design with chills and thrills with us.
The Evil Clown
Seen the badass scary clown in the movie IT inspired by Stephen King’s book? For some reason, clown are considered to have a dark side even though their job is to make people laugh. The playful comical character is rendered as a horrifying mascot. In fact, the Mc Donald’s clown has a creepy touch to it.
Here are some cruel clowns that will poof your sleep.
