    I’m a huge fan of vintage styling, it’s something I’ve tried to incorporate into my architectural designs, I just need some more open minded clients,

  7. I’m a big fan of retro design but you have to ensure its appropriate to the client and audience. So long as you can put a modern spin on it I think they look great.

  10. I do love a bit of vintage design! I’ve yet to find an excuse to use it in a project yet though. I think the style would work perfectly for a butchers or bakery.

    Love that ”Stranger & Stranger Spirit No.13”. Reminds me of the work of Devin Clark from Ugly Americans.
