20 cool modern retro logo designs for 2013

You will find 20 examples of cool modern retro logo designs created in 2013. Retro logos always have a place in design. No matter how advanced we have become, we will reminisce about the good old times, which is why retro design is always welcome. However, most folks don’t like stuff that are too retro. Hence the term modern retro. These designs are some retro elements but also carry a modern look.

The key to creating these kind of logos is to use some elements of retro and not have everything looking so vintage. This can be done via

  • color theme that has a retro vibe
  • a retro looking object
  • a vintage background
  • a retro font type

If you used any of the above and infuse into a modern logo design, you will get modern retro logos.

If you find what I am saying as too confusing, below are 20 examples of modern retro logo designs that you can use as references or examples.
