London brand agency Williams Murray Hamm has emblazoned its office front with a cheeky Brexit Halloween horror visual.

The company aims to warn the public that time is running out, and that “the countdown to a Brexit nightmare on October 31st is well and truly underway.”

The innovation and design firm said that “Boris Johnson’s spectacular Brexit horror show, scheduled to provide the scariest Halloween for decades and haunt the nation forever”, is already terrifying the neighbours around Williams Murray Hamm’s east London offices.

As the UK hurtles towards October 31st and Boris Johnson’s prospects of orchestrating an orderly exit from the EU look unlikely, it claimed, so the agency has brought to life the full horror of the ordeal to come, thanks to some very scary window installations.

Brexit horror: WMH pulls no punches with its Halloween campaign

Some of Brexit’s scariest participants have been conjured up to create the full Halloween experience. 

Nigel Farage gets his own window as Frankenstein, bringing monstrous ideas back from the dead, while the zombie horror of Theresa May and her “Brexit deal that just won’t die” are also part of the agency’s living nightmare tableau.

"At Williams Murray Hamm, we usually look forward to Halloween, but this year the scary prospect of a no deal Brexit has turned the annual party into a real life nightmare”. Wybe Magermans, managing director at WMH.

The illustrations were created by the talented Isaac Williamson, who, according to the agency, summed up the sentiment of many across the nation: “We might leave the EU, but we remain creative".

WMH said that it can’t offer to rescue the nation from the horror of Brexit, but for one Halloween only, it will guarantee to look kindly upon trick or treaters, and promises to greet them with a little something to provide comfort amid the dark horror of the dreaded night.

The New European magazine kindly allowed use of the Theresa May & Nigel Farage masks.
