To make a clown design, it is common to add colors like red, white, and green. This color scheme is often associated with horror and harlequin concepts. 

Remember to consider your target audience before opting for this type of design. It works for events and gaming brands, but the horror concept may not necessarily be the best choice for companies that tend to younger audiences. 

Pro tip: Keep it simple

It’s tempting to add details and depth to your design. But for logos, it is best to stick with neat and adaptive elements. This will make your logo easy to use in the future. You won’t have much trouble trying to apply it to assets such as posters, business cards, etc.

Font logos

If you are looking for something more straightforward, you wouldn’t want to miss these scary font logos. 

Text-based designs give you the advantage of being direct when it comes to visual communication. Using the correct choice of design elements, you can quickly inform your audience of your brand name without distractions. 

Depending on your taste, you can either have a wordmark or lettermark design. Wordmark logos allow you to feature the entirety of your business name.

On the other hand, lettermark logos only feature initials. This creates brevity for brands with long names. 

Whichever style you choose, horror-inspired fonts like Monstarize, Spooky Regime, Scary Halloween, Midnight Minutes, and The Mummy are great starting points for your logo. 

Pro tip: Use only two to three fonts

Designers recommend setting a limit to your type selection. This is because incorporating too many fonts in your logo may take away its coherence. By sticking two a limited number of fonts, you can prevent your design from oversaturation. 

Creepy logos

Spine chilling images are always hard to forget. This makes them perfect for Halloween brands. 

Luckily, you can create a one of a kind brand mark by using different influences from grotesque, gothic, macabre art, and others. 

Popular themes for creepy designs include pumpkins, ghosts, skulls, candles, occult signs, dark sceneries, and the like. The creative possibilities are endless.

If you are having trouble trying to pick a color scheme for your palette, you should try using color psychology

Using this approach to color allows you to give a deeper meaning to your insignia. Color psychology explores how people associate traits in various colors. For example, red is perceived as aggressive, green can represent harmony, black is associated with horror and more. You can use this fact to create a better image for your brand. 

Pro tip: Add a hidden message

Another way for you to make your emblem enjoyable is by giving it meaning. Like Unilever, Amazon, and Toblerone, many famous brand logos are known to do this. Your logo can feature a haunting double meaning to capture the attention of your audience.
