There are few icons more recognizable than skeletons, which is why this combination of skeletons and street art works so brilliantly.

These street art pieces feature thinking skeletons, animals, card-playing skeletons, and a bevy of other human-like behavior. Which is your favorite?

Implications - No company should be afraid of embracing macabre imagery, because it is a thematic style that definitely has an appeal to consumers all its own. Literally any product or marketing campaign can make use of spooky elements to take it out of the realm of the ordinary. The second you stand out from the regular and the expected, you automatically operate in a market with decidedly less competition.
