Great websites for vintage resources & inspiration

Vintage - or Retro - design is the style that uses techniques, colours or shapes used in the past. I am a big fan of this style and in this post I am going to point out some of the best websites to find great vintage material - from illustrations and photos to tutorials and resources.


Flickr has an extensive selection of vintage and retro material. I’ve selected 2 of them which I use as inspiration for some design pieces.


This on-line community showcases vintage material in photography, illustrations, print and web design. In this website you can also find several tutorials to help you develop your “retro” skills.


The guys at Abduzeedo love to post about vintage and retro design. Their blog is full of great material and is worth the visit. Here are some of the highlights (check out more cool entries by searching their website).


The Behance Network is another platform of great artist and works. Vintage is only one of the numerous categories found in this website, a great bookmark for inspiration resources.

Other Useful Resources

Last but not least, here are some more websites with amazing retro material.
