I came across Dan Gretta’s work today- he’s a designer at The Forefathers, a land of wondrous vintage-y goodness. Check out his portfolio and the company’s website for more eye candy.
I feel like a little kid. I just discovered these geniuses and I’m in love :) I saw it and was like a kid in a candy store. I had to get them and post them. STAT. (I needed this to kick my butt in gear with the blog. Starting a small business is quite time consuming!)
To make up for my lack of posts, I give you this: A feast for your eyes! Via Two Arms Inc.
All work beautifully crafted by Two Arms Inc – aka Michael Tabie and Karen Goheen, an illustrater and designer that work together to be super awesome. Go see more of their work at their website.
This A.R.S. Monogram is by Jeff Finley. I found it on his Dribbble Page (I love that site), but you can also see it on his website.
Hard Hat Design re-branded Coffee Supreme, a coffee house in New Zealand and Australia with a nod to times past and a tactile, touch-of-the-artist feel. On their website they go into great detail about their process and inspiration. Read more about it here.
Boulangerie Malmo is a little bakery in Sweden that looks like it’s been there 100 years without aging. Isn’t the signage and molding great? I love intimate shops that take you back in time. They also had this cool vintage bakery photo of a little boy with a huge loaf of bread. Can you imagine a little boy today drooling over bread in a window? Found via Simplesong.
Cute clever way to pique a consumer’s curiosity and make them want to interact with the packaging. I can see this turning into a lot of peeled off stickers on the shelf though.. lol

A fellow reader was kind enough to point me in the direction of Woody Harrington. He’s getting a lot of attention for his vintage style matchbooks based on classic literature. He bases each title, color palette, and illustrations on specific details in each story. See all of them, inside and out, here.
These vintage beauties were all made by Simon, a designer in Cape Town. Talk about a knack for vintage styling. The first image is of a wine label, and I thought it was an actual vintage piece he just posted for inspiration. Hats off to ya Mr.Simon. Check out his Dribbble page here.
These are phenomenally done. I honestly thought they were actual vintage labels when I saw them. The pencil written on top is such a great idea and makes them feel like they actually traveled the world on someone’s luggage. See Dustin’s dribble page here. Via Sam Allen on Pinterest.
