There is something distinctly compelling about the vintage aesthetic. Brimming with charm and character, it often tells stories of a colourful past and showcases a level of craftsmanship that many creatives today still aspire to emulate. Retro designs also emanate a sense of comfort and warmth that is tinged with nostalgia. As testament to the adage that old is indeed gold, ‘New Retro’ showcases a brilliant collection of work that is anything but outdated, featuring projects that not only draw inspiration from the good old days, but also merge seamlessly with contemporary influences and culture. First published in 2016, this 2021 rerelease–with additional projects and a special cover design–coincides with victionary’s 20th anniversary and is dedicated to the fans who have been requesting for its reprint ever since it went out of stock.
