As a follow up on my recent post about retro themes for WordPress I am going to share a lot of cool websites with you, that all use retro elements as a dominating part of their design.

The use of retro in web design may is a bit wrong since retro per definition is an outdated style or trend that have become modern again. You see, retro in web design, is not about going back to the style we used and loved back in the late 90’ies. It is about using retro style colors, images, ornaments, banners and typography but in a modern mix and a technologically up-to-date fashion. Typical retro colors a various tones of brown and images often look like aged photographs or make use the pop art style. In web design the use of retro style design elements helps make your website unique and stand out from the masses.

I have found more than 55 great examples of retro style in web design and I am sure you will find it inspirational. Please share any great ret websites I missed in a comment. Also, please share this article with people you know on social media.
