Vintage and retro style is a popular choice for web and graphic design. While we’ve showcased vintage web designs in the past, we’ve never focused on vintage style logos. Well, that vintage and retro feel can be an excellent choice for logos as well. Vintage-style badges are especially popular elements to use in logo designs right now, and you’ll see several examples within the selection below. In addition to badges, other elements like sunrays, gears, rockets, and ribbons are also used to enhance the retro feel. Sometimes objects from the past, like vinyl records or classic cars, tend to pop up in these types of designs for added character.

Some of the examples here are in use in the real world, some were unused proposals that clients did not choose, and a few are experimental designs just for fun. Regardless, they all use a design style that can be used by many types of logos.
