Retro is a word that derives from the Latin prefix retro, meaning “backwards” or “in past times”. I think extremely interesting that we look back and get inspired by designs produced a while back, or even some recent ones that use the retro style. Since Friday is always a good day to relax and browse some inspiring images, we decided to gather a list with retro inspiration to show you.
Thanks to ISO50, my number one source for retro inspiration, I discovered two amazing Flickr galleries: Advertising Hitchcock and Eric Carl. These guys have so many beautiful and inspiring retro images that I decided to gather some examples to share with you. It’s really good to pay attention to the images and notice typography, colors and shapes, this can be indeed pretty inspiring.
