Scary Fonts as Part of Design

The right choice of color scheme is also significant. The colors black and white, red, dark violet, and gray are mostly used. The said colors are important in designing your fonts. Moreover, you must bear in mind that you are portraying something that is terrifying, creepy, strange, and deathly.

One of the cardinal rules in using a font style is using it according to its theme and purpose. Here are some of the other general rules in selecting a font style:

  • It is important to create an accurate representation of the scary and terrifying situation you are portraying.
  • Take note on the rules regarding the proper pairing of fonts
  • You must not overdo it and take note of the message you are trying to convey
  • Observe consistency if need unless you are trying to point out another thought

These are some tips that you may or may not follow because after all we have subjective views on which are scary and which are not. To save you from the stresses of the planning and designing, you can download our scary font design templates, which are original and of high quality.
