I’m a big fan of 1950s style and 1960s history, so it’s not shocking that I’d love retro-style web design. One of the layouts I’ve designed was based on the Canadian zombie movie Fido, which is based in the 1950s and features some of the best costumes and colors I’ve ever seen in film.

I’ve compiled a collection of inspirational links and resources for designing in an era before our own.
