Showcase: 50 Retro Logos for Your Inspiration

I’ve always found the phrase “an oldie, but a goodie” to be rather strange, but anyone who takes the time to research retro design in general will no doubt come to appreciate the beauty in these familiar but distant works.

Logos in a retro style can elicit nostalgia from people in a targeted age bracket, or imply a trustworthiness exuded by long-established businesses. With a retro logo, you’re forced to remember things we should have never forgotten in the first place. Timeless logos are, after all, the greatest logos.

Stay tuned next week when we’ll flip this theme on its head and look at 50 modern logo designs.
