26 Websites using Classic Retro Vintage Effects

With the takeover of flat design it seems like deep textures and rich patterns have been pushed to the wayside. But even through this trendy flat design phase there are still hundreds of brilliant websites catering to exceptional realism.

For this post I've organized 26 exemplary retro-style vintage website designs for inspiration. Each design utilizes a series of textures, patterns, icons, and text effects to recreate the feeling of yesteryears. Feel free to incorporate some of these effects into your own future work. And if you know any similar retro websites feel free to share in the post comments below.
