REMINDER – CONTEST: Make an “Electronic Halloween” graphic

CONTEST: Make an “Electric Halloween” graphic, each day this month we’re going to feature a cool project from around the web that has electronics AND has something to do with Halloween. We don’t have a graphic for this effort so we’re going to have a contest. Just make a graphic for “Electronic Halloween” and post a link to it in the comments. We’ll pick our favorite one and use it for our posts!

THE PRIZE: $150 in the Adafruit store!

DETAILS: Make the graphic (at the most) 600 x 600, it will be used on each post here for the projects we feature! Make it Creative Commons BY-SA 3.0. Deadline, let’s say October 8th!

Good luck!


We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter

  3. Cool Idea! Always looking for new fun ways to celebrate!

    Here’s my submission. I’ve made two different versions of this… I just couldn’t decide between traditional colors or Halloween colors.

    Happy Halloween!

  4. Just had a quick look at the submissions, and if I was going to try to make a design, I would want it to look like Paul Asselin’s. Nice work!

  5. This has been fun! Jason and I seem to have had the same idea of using LED symbols for jack-o-lantern eyes 😀

  15. Here is my design: I thought why just make a 2D graphic? Why not make a graphic that actually works if etched. And that’s what i did:

    Logo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ozeraser/6222224588/

    Video of it as a PCB (working): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2K6aeDXkKQ

    Post with instructions and info on what i did:

    Hope you enjoy it as much as i did designing it and making it. (Etched my first board because of this competition :P)
    The logo is also a Vector so, any size is possible, transparency is possible, colour change easy.

  16. Hope you like it!
