Groovy Examples of Vintange Retro Typography

The vintage look has been coming back on the scene for a while now. Fashions and clothing dated back to the 1960s, 1970s, and the 1980s are still very retro. These statements may also be applied to design and creative typography.

Check out my small collection of retro typography. These shots include not only text effects, but also beaming works of textures and hues. Digital text is not the easiest element to style. And following a retro/vintage design pattern is always an exciting touch.
