Retro and vintage are becoming a new trend for a throwback in web design. Designers are applying “old-style” elements to online shops, portfolios, corporate design, and blogs in large and small scale. If implemented well, retro designs can be creative, appealing, make websites stand out and look very unique. Distinguished elements used to create a vintage atmosphere are never boring, including common graphics from old posters, movies, newspapers, CDs, vinyls and ads. Old cars, packaging, old-style typography, and old-style signs are often combined with a hand-drawing style, grunge style and even some try to incorporate a Renaissance look.
