Pumpkin Carving Ideas for Graphic Designers
1. Helvetica Halloween
Nothing says “designer” like a Swiss Style inspired pumpkin. Flush left, Helvetica, make it bigger, make it “pop!”
2. Where’d We Be Without Wifi?
Let’s be honest: Adobe’s Creative Cloud might be the best thing since sliced bread. And how do we access the cloud? WiFi. Show some appreciation for that thing that gets you through the day. Like, every day.
3. Apple Pumpkin Pie Anyone?
All hail MacBook! All hail iPhone! All hail Steve Jobs!
4. jQuery Jack-O-Lantern
5. Pantone Pumpkin
If you’re dressing up as a Pantone Swatch, you may as well complete the look with a matching pumpkin! Find your pumpkin’s Pantone number here.

10. Perhaps the Spookiest of All
Guaranteed to scare the heck out of your in-house team.
