Shortest Horror Stories - Graphic Design / Freelance / Digital Media

~ 1 Minute Read

As yesterday was Friday the 13th and Halloween is coming up soon, I’ve been in the spirit of spookiness. One of my favourite internet trends are the Shortest Horror Stories forums. If you’ve never heard of these before, this is an example of one of my favourites:

“I begin tucking him into bed and he tells me, “Daddy check for monsters under my bed.” I look underneath for his amusement and see him, another him, under the bed, staring back at me quivering and whispering, “Daddy there’s somebody on my bed.”

I thought it would be fun to come up with some playful graphic design related nightmares. Enjoy!
