What Is Retro Logo Design?

Similar to Vintage, Retro logo design is imitative of a style from the recent past. Whether you would like your logo to reflect 90s fashion or 60s music or we help you build a retro feel around your brand. Retro logo designs are incredibly effective as they forge meaningful connections between the past and present.

The Comeback of Retro Logos

There is a reason why, In the past few months, you may have noticed that UK brands have reverted back to their nostalgic past. Some of our country’s biggest names have returned to previous versions of their company logo in an attempt to convey their brand’s rich heritage and original charm. It appears a new trend is emerging in 2017 and that retro branding is making a comeback.



Kodak are one of the most well-known brands in the western world and the use of the Kodak ‘K’ is now back and better than ever before! It has revived as logo designers have used a vibrant colour palette which creates a strong identity across all aspects of the Kodak brand.

Coca Cola

In 2007 Coca Cola returned to their classic design: “A simple, bold approach with a single white ribbon”. We all know the Coca-Cola logo when we see it, that is the reason why it is so iconic. A lot has changed since Coca Cola began, however, they have stuck to their roots and their customers love them for it!



The Co-op have recently returned to an identity which was originally created over 40 years ago! The logos ties in with their new marketing strategy: ‘back to being Co-op’ . Co-op are using nostalgia and prove the power of the past.

The Benefits of Retro Logo Design

As we have mentioned, retro logos are extremely effective as they associate brands with nostalgia, experience and expertise. Retro logos are great for older businesses as it sets them apart from younger start-up competitors.

In recent years we have seen more and more businesses move towards retro logo design as it is incredibly trendy.  Brands thrive on the authenticity of handcrafted logo designs that take inspiration from the 1960s and 70s.

You may have noticed that brands from all industries are experimenting with nostalgia marketing. By choosing a retro logo design you are tapping into positive cultural memories from previous decades.

Coca-Cola, Microsoft, Lego and Herbal Essences have all brought back their former logos to reignite campaign strategies. If you are a smart brand, then you will also change to a retro logo design to maximize nostalgia marketing.

Retro logo design and nostalgia is one way you can lead your customers down memory lane. By associating your brand with references from the 90s, 80s and 70s it will humanize your brands.

Using Colour for Retro Logos

Do you have a colour scheme in mind? If you are not sure where to start when it comes to retro colour schemes we would be happy to help you. For our retro logo clients, we tend to use softer, more muted, neutral colours, such as pastels and tans, however, this will all depend on your business’ preference.

Retro colour arrangements are sometimes sharper and brighter and this may not suit the tone of your brand. If you would prefer to go the subtle route – let us know. We can create a logo which is made to your personal specifications.

Not sure which colour or colours to choose? When it comes to retro colour schemes go back in time for inspiration. Think of colours you would find in a faded Polaroid photo from your childhood, a vintage, older buildings and architecture, record covers or whatever you can think of from the last century that you associate with your business.

Circles are extremely common in retro logo design. At Repeat Logo our designers can make something with circles and circular bursts. We have been asked in the past to create an old style design with a round container. The technique works quite well and instantly looks classic. One popular way to slightly modify the circle is using a gear shape. This is a great idea if you are looking to create branding which is more masculine. Gears tend to feel more industrial and give off a post WWII sort of aesthetic.

Robots are extremely retro and are very specific time to a different time period, something which a retro logo tends to signify. We can create the sci-fi logo you have always dreamed of!


We are often asked if we create car logos and they answer is yes! We believe that nothing says retro more than a classic car. The 60s and 70s feel of a classic car logo is cool and totally eye catching. Cars are also great if you are looking for something with a vintage appeal. There are a few other variations on the transportation theme here as well, particularly of the two-wheeled variety.
