Showcase of Stunning Retro Poster Designs

The term “Retro” is often described as a culturally outdated, aged style that has since become trendy or functionally the norm in present day. Pairing this type of style with today’s powerful graphic design software, many talented designers have taken the time to create some extremely stunning retro poster designs.

These posters however are made with modern designing and poster printing tools that enhance their quality and durability. Some notable techniques used on these retro posters are the application of color palettes with relatively low saturation resulting into faded colors, the use of texture to give the print a vintage feel, and the insertion of distinct typography that originated in past decades.

We have collected 25 retro inspired custom posters for design inspiration. Whether they make you feel nostalgic or simply amused by the “old school look,” you’ll just never grow tired of such designs.
