70+ Retro and Vintage Web Designs – Old Style Rocks!

Just the other day I was looking for inspiration on a vintage-inspired web design for a friend of mine. He was interested in a retro look and feel but had no idea on how to get started with the project so he came to me for help.

As I began browsing the Internet for great examples on how business’ use vintage and retro designs on their websites it hit me that there are actually different impressions you can achieve simple by using blurred vs. bright colors and the typography you use. When done right a retro or vintage web design can end up looking more current and relevant than many new and modern website design do.

By using certain color schemes, time-specific elements and of cause related typography you will be able to create a web design that have the right look and feel as if you were back in the 1950s – or whatever decade you aim to replicate.

Besides looking for inspiration on how to design a retro or vintage web design I also found this collection of WordPress themes with retro style on Tripwire Magazine. This collection could be a great help for you to get started on your design project once you have found the needed inspiration. I hope you will find the inspiration you came looking for. Enjoy!
