Cool Vintage and Retro Logo Designs

Retro and vintage are popular but less known design styles in the design industry.  By integrating older styles and colors with modern techniques and approaches, a retro or vintage style can be adapted into effective modern design and catch a viewer’s eye.

Vintage logo designs tend to use near neutral colors, such as tans, pastels and other softer colors, while retro logo designs tend to integrate a sharper, brighter color to attract the viewer’s eye.

Here are some great examples of cool vintage logos and sharp retro logos.
