Retro vintage is a typical design of the old which has staged a comeback in today’s art trend. During its heyday, retro vintage graphics, as they are called now, were designed without the aid of powerful graphic software like Photoshop or Illustrator. You see, everything was handcrafted down to the smallest details.
Indeed, you can only imagine how hard the design process was since you did not have the benefit of using some retro fonts, as they are called at present, that come in handy in creating beautiful typography for your labels, flyers, posters and a lot more. Even the sharing of know-how and experience on how to come up with better designs, was not developed then unlike now when we have all the learning guides on the web, including vintage Photoshop tutorials to help us create designs inspired by the bygone era.
With the passage of time, and rapid change in technology our design workflow and techniques are far superior than the designers of the old but nevertheless, the aesthetics and quality of their craftsmanship in spite of crude technology is worth valuing. This is the reason why there is prevalence of vintage designs in graphic arts and some examples of this recent trend are presented on this showcase of retro vintage package designs. Help us spread this article if you find them artistic, beautiful and inspiring. Enjoy!
