    Fantastic designs. I especially love the Volkswagon example, so ahead of the times in their advertising. It’s crazy to think that the 80’s and 90’s is now retro!

    Deffo NOT vintage or retro—just homages—and well-done at that. These are pretty cosmo, non-retro designs.

    Awesome designs !

    Thanks for featuring my Andrew Jackson piece! It’s cool to be included in this collection, even though some of this stuff is being called “retro” and “vintage” because the designer used an old paper texture or some grunge. I was hoping to see some new stuff, but this post would have been perfect 1-2 years ago. It seems like most of the examples, while good designs, are tired examples of the homage to retro/vintage.

    Btw, if anyone wants to know how I designed my Andrew Jackson piece, I am selling a 2.3 hour video tutorial of my full design process. http://bit.ly/andrewjacksontutorial
