Vintage posters started life back in the 1870’s. Initially, printing was only possible with black and white texts. However, with the introduction of the 3 stone lithographic printing process by French artist Jules Cheret, artists everywhere were able to create marketing ideas that they can transform into stunning art that is full of colors.
In recent years, retro designs have made a comeback. From logos to product packaging to website design, people just love the old fashioned look, making retro become alive and classy once again. Retro designs are rampant during the 1960’s and other bygone periods, during which there was no graphic software on hand for designers. There were no font choices, glossy gradients and other tools that can hasten the design process. Artists have to depend on their own hands in creating all details of their artwork.
In this post, we will take a look at vintage posters that exude the appearance and composition of a bygone era. We hope that these vintage posters will serve as your inspiration in your retro vintage projects.
