Do you like retro designs? You’re mistaken if you consider them being dull and not interesting. They call reminiscences of the gone away century that was rich for great people and events that changed the world.
Let’s go retro today! Old stuff can gain a new look and popularity in a period of time, and it’s always cool when it goes about designs. Vintage web design is an interesting topic, and today I’m going to highlight the cool examples of 5 Best Vintage Style Website Designs. Why 5? Because they are really nice, show the retro aspects of design in the effective way and are worth seeing. Besides, it seems to me that you can get tired of reading more info. What makes all the vintage sites similar (and these are not an exception)? Let’s see their key features in the list below:
- Textured backgrounds (wooden, ornamental).
- Old paper textures (mostly in the content part).
- Vintage typography. Here is a good source to find nice retro types.
- Old-fashioned images.
- Décor elements inherent to old newspapers.
- Faded colors.
If you’re not a fan of retro style, you can easily become the one after viewing these appealing designs. Stunning and easy on the eye, they can turn the viewers in their devotees. Is it really true? Let’s see!
This eye-candy example is my favorite one from the whole compilation. The multicolored grunge background, the nice burned texture in the content part, a lot of postcards all over the page and, of course, cool images in pin-up style make this design not only a vintage, but a striking one. You’ll certainly like the 1957 Chevrolet in the footer of this nice site.
How do you like this design in rock’n’roll style? It is the large typography in a bit faded colors and dark wooden background that create such an association. The designer puts emphasis on the visual presentation of the content, and places a lot of images on the first page. It makes the visitors enjoy the nice pics and learn more about this bowling club. Great vintage concept for such a site!
