Autumn-themed Graphic Resources

Autumn is supposed to be all about the harvest and preparing for what’s to come. But in my neck of the woods, “Fall” is when our thoughts turn to pumpkin-spiced goodies, flannel shirts, and holidays that revolve around consuming food we can get any time of year. So light a warm fire, grab a toasty drink, and cozy up to these autumn-themed graphic goodies.

These harvest-y templates are perfect for your social media sales blitz. This collection of a dozen templates comes in both Illustrator and Photoshop formats and includes the stock imagery. $12

If you wanted plaid backgrounds, this collection delivers more than you could ever need. These vector backgrounds stir up images of flannel shirts and cozy blankets around campfires. Starting at $3/image

This set of color palettes available from the Adobe Color community resulted from a search on the autumn tag (as opposed to only seeing palettes with autumn in the name).
