O hushed October morning mild,
Thy leaves have ripened to the fall;
Tomorrow’s wind, if it be wild,
Should waste them all.
– October, Robert Frost
October is one of my favorite months of the year, and arguably one of the best for the design world. Halloween, scary movies, autumn leaves: regardless of your opinion on the pumpkin spice latte, the imagery around the fall season can’t be beat (even at Envato HQ in Australia, where the view from the office window is more sunny springtime than fall foliage).
In honor of the October, here’s a roundup of some of the best design assets related to fall and Halloween design this year:
A is for Apple Picking
The classic fall pastime: venture to an apple orchard, pick several baskets of apples from the trees, go home, anxiously Google “recipes that use a lot of apples”. (Illustrator: blackmoon9)
Here’s a cute, scary ghost with a boo sign. (Image: Dazdraperma)
Two coffins, actually. (Illustrator: ded_Mazay)
But illustrated baby animals and wizards in this portfolio, too. (Illustrator: Dazdraperma).
He looks sort of friendly, right? (Illustrator: Dazdraperma).
H is for Halloween Costumes
Animals in Halloween costumes > people in Halloween costumes.
Crazy, like this pumpkin.
J is for Jack-o-Lantern
These come in a series of different emotions, so you can choose how your pumpkins are feelings about being carved. (Illustrator: gnazlis)
You know, the ones terrorising the whole world right now. (Illustrator: Julianna_Million)
Probably of the pumpkin spice variety.
I think Octoberfest technically starts in September, but we’ll bookmark these flyer templates for next year’s celebration.
“How about incorporating a coffin with a photo of a man on its cover, then having that swing open and the skeleton begin to dance?”
That’s the idea behind the After Effects template Halloween Party Promo. Read more about how it was created on the Envato community website.
There’s also a king of bones, a scarecrow, a witch, a wizard, and more in this illustrated character set.

Skeletons of the dancing, cartoon variety. (Illustrator: memoangeles)
This design is all treats, no tricks!
This design is called fun, spooky monsters… but, they’re pretty adorable.
On a broomstick, or with her cauldron.
X-rays are Halloween-related, right? (Illustrator: Chuhail).
Zombies are a popular theme in movies, TV, and in illustrations.
