Today’s post is a fantastic collection of inspiring retro web designs, I particularly enjoy the vintage/retro style of design in whatever form it takes, from posters and adverts to web designs. The vintage typographic elements and the attention to detail given to these really stand out to me, the subtle use of background textures in these web designs also appeals to me and I am already thinking how I can incorporate them in in some future projects!Read More

Logos that use gradients and shading have, historically, been avoided because they aren’t shown at their best when printed in black and white, but as the web has evolved and become used more and more by businesses (and especially with the emergence of companies that only operate online), shaded logos are coming back with a vengeance. Shading and gradients can add a depth to a logo, and can help to make the mark “pop” a bit more. It’s a very useful technique to be able to lift part of the logo off the page so that it doesn’t seem quite so flat – but it can be quite challenging to do it effectively and in a way that looks natural.
