The Future Was Here

Vintage 2.0 – Glossy Retro Takes Over Web Design
An Inspired Mag reader said a few posts ago that the round corner buttons are dead. I think precisely the same mate, I know how you feel about the so-called web 2.0 buttons and shiny blingos! But what about this new futuretro style, that combines the web 2.0 (clean) look with a vintage touch?

We’ve made a roundup of 25 websites that mix the retro with the shiny. What do you guys think about this style?

This is from Inspired Mag Daily Graphic Design Inspiration. I love the retrofuture feel, and I eagerly hope to see it applied frequently. The best example I've seen so far is Bradley Schenk's Webomator blog. Check it out now, if you ignored my earlier post.

Since we seem to have similar tastes on tumblr - I thought you might also like The Retropolitan at http://nineteenthirtynine.net/ .

The site appears to be broken now - but it has a very interesting pulpy, retro-futuristic, dieselpunk etc. look that I thought might interest you, Robo.
