Vintage websites use a style that is considered as timeless. Trends in web design change with the times. Thus, what is popular today may no longer be popular tomorrow. However, vintage style can always be relied upon because of its ageless appeal. In fact, some people contend that retro and vintage should not be considered as style because they are more than that. They are a creative and bold statement – a movement by themselves, which are unparalleled by any other website design.
Vintage websites have a way of getting our appreciation and attention in an amazing manner. So for this post, I have compiled a list of more than 40 vintage websites that you can use as inspiration in your own design. In reality, these vintage websites are only retro at the surface. Go deeper and you will peel back the retro veneer and find cutting edge design and web development processes employed. So browse on each website example below and be motivated by them in designing your own online shop, blog or corporate website. All you really require is a bit of grunge, dirt, vintage fonts and muted color palette. Throwing in some old ad, packaging, newspaper clippings, scrapbook pages and photos will not hurt.
Of course, if you have a really cool vintage website design, you can always share them with us through the comment section below. If your friends will benefit from reviewing vintage websites, you can share this post with them.
