“Halloween was once again dominated by the supermarkets, with product offerings and displays much larger than other retailers. More confectionery and sweet manufacturers have developed their packaging for Halloween this year, offering ‘Vampire Fangs’ and ‘Scaremixes’, all catering for Trick or Treating. We saw a continuation of print themes of minimal characters, like cute bats and ghosts, as well as Day of the Dead themes. Newness came from fun typography messages and stronger colours coming through such as jade green” explains Clare Coulson, Trend Researcher at Trend Bible.
Our London and New York based researchers share their opinions and provide analysis of how these trends are developing and reflecting consumer behavior.
