Retro '71

This week’s Retro '71 shirt concept is based on the Lake Buena Vista Shopping Village, which opened in 1975 and changed its name to the Walt Disney World Village in 1977. Serving as a shopping district for Disney World vacationers, the area was much more intimate and relaxed than what you would find today. As a child, I only remember visiting the area maybe twice as it appealed more to an older adult demographic.

I recreated the logo and added an outer stroke in a color that is brighter than the shirt then a second stroke in a muted green to make it pop. I tried to keep the colors very simplistic in tones of creams and browns. Finishing the design is a simple crackle texture.

Well that does it for this week’s Retro '71 concept. I've had quite a week and sadly have to push off the typography case study until next week, with the new soundboard app to follow soon. Stick with me folks, they are coming, I promise. Until next time, thanks for visiting and see ya soon.
