Vintage style branding continues to be a popular choice for businesses looking to give off a retro vibe. Whether you own a bar or coffee shop, craft handmade goods, or sell services, vintage-style logos and branding are a great choice!
Vintage colors can range from vibrant diner scenes to subdued and muted tones captured on film cameras.
With such diversity in color choice, we put together some vintage color palettes to make choosing what colors to work with a little easier. HEX codes are included as well as suggestions for how to use these combinations in apps or social media graphics.
