Get ready for the next super hot Springleap.com theme competition! I really feel as if this latest compo has lots of potential and that there are plenty of artists out there who will want to get involved. Ladies and gentlemen without further deviation I give you the Vintage Vibes and Radical Retro theme competition.
Yes thats right everyone it’s a full on old school design assault that will leave us doing the hippy hippy shake and wondering what the hell DVD’s are!
As the name implies the Vintage Vibes and radical Retro theme competition is all about casting our minds back to the days of our parents and their parent’s parents and coming up with a design that truly captures the moods, styles and inclinations of the past.
This competition is pretty open about what is acceptable, a long as you keep it in the realm of the retro/ vintage arena. Think retro as early as Yoyo’s and as old school retro as the 1920 with their classic style mobsters and jazz infused society.
Honestly anything from the past can be retro…but there is a fine line between iconic retro and simply “old”.

It’s strange but whenever I think of retro I totally rule out the 60’s…which is unfair, because let’s face it, the swinging 60’s was a pretty retro era…just think of all those long haired tree hugging hippy types who commune with butterflies after eating too much LSD….they are a seriously iconic crowd.
I’m sure I will think of load more awesome vintage styles for the Vintage Vibes and Radical Retro theme competition. So, what I will do is write a follow up article with a few suggestions to get you going. Honestly there are thousands of cool ideas for this competition. Just let your minds regress and ponder the yesteryears.
