Though trends come and go, one trend that never seems to disappear is pop art and retro design. Especially when designing posters and flyers the retro style seems to be an evergreen.

Creating retro style design is not as hard as it may seem. However, in order to get it right there are some classic elements required such as using colors and illustrations from the 1940-50’ies. In addition, the typography in retro style is often bold and with thick shadows or characteristic old fashion script style. It is a good idea to look for some retro font before you get started.

Many of the design stages that goes into creating a great looking retro poster or flyer is the same as you would go through if you wanted to create a retro looking website, so you might benefit from looking through some retro inspired website designs as well for retro style inspiration.

When researching for a new design you should always have lots of inspirational material to browse through. To make sure you have all the inspiration you need I have found more than 55 different examples of amazing retro posters and flyers for this article? Hope you will appreciate the homework I have done. Enjoy!
