Best Retro WordPress Themes
Web design elements of the recent past are exactly what appeals to retro design. In fact, retro is concerned more with the recent past than it is other periods. And technology, especially technology greatly influenced by culture, is perfect for resurrection twenty years later. We see t-shirts with old video game slogans, like the Oregon Trail t-shirt (“You have died of dysentery”), or shirts featuring Atari 2600 game characters.What retro does not do, though, is use the older design techniques. Retro, after all, is not an appreciation of the recent past, but the reclamation of the recent past. In the Southwestern United States, architecture similar to pueblo or adobe style architecture is very popular. But architects don’t use adobe or vigas in their building; they use frame and stucco. Similarly, a fashion designer basing a dress on the designs of the roaring 20′s wouldn’t use cotton, wool or silk, but instead would utilize nylon, spandex, or a combination of synthetics and natural materials.
