Vacation souvenir graphics – Vintage inspiration

As you all know taking inspiration from authentic vintage graphics can be a great source for new design work and apparel graphics. A graphic trend that we’ve seen emerging over the last couple of months is the reuse and rejuvenation of old US State vacation souvenir visuals.


These authentic and cleverly twisted adverts were seen recently on the Creative review blog, which confirms this vintage graphic trend. This vibrant reworked vacation souvenir visual is the creative work of UK graphic guru’s iLoveDust a heavyweight in the world of directional and edgy graphic design.


Other confirmations of this on oing graphic trend were seen at the recent Bread & Butter and Magic trade shows. The trend of vacation graphics statements is not only focused on state map visuals but also makes use of old US cafes, road signs and vintage signage.


Here are some other interesting vintage graphics we spotted recently on the web. For more inspiring visuals visit the Vintage vacation souvenirs group on Flickr or A collection a Day.
