The members of that subculture that is easily and uniquely recognizable by its Ray Ban glasses, skinny jeans/trousers, almost antique Holga photocamera, shaggy haircuts and deep love to vintage are called Hipsters. They are those who truly appreciate old-fashioned stuff and successfully manage to stay away from mainstream trends, while at the same time, look very stylish and voguish. Conquering the real world, they have finally reached the online universe by affecting various spheres of design including print graphic material and website looks. Thanks to its eccentric and offbeat appearance, the retro style has got a second wind. Just take a look at the website of Morgan Street Cafe or Max & Erma’s Illustrated Menu Cover made by Peter Donnelly, they simply exude of originality and sophistication as well as seize attention by professionally-crafted intricate appearances.
Old-fashioned typography, heavily-textured backgrounds, retro badges and logos, iconic graphics, light shades, minimal subdued coloring, sketches and hand-drawn illustrations can be found on these kinds of artworks that show an alternative side of retro style.
I hope we are managed to spark your interest a bit. If yes, then let’s kindle the fire and awaken your inner Hipster with our collection of free graphics, mockups, icons and fonts made with this offbeat yet trendy style in mind.
