// Retro Net-Art & Justin Blyth
Bevels, drop-shadows, rainbow gradients, clip art. Recently, graphic design has reverted to it’s retro aesthetics. Designers are calling the style “retro chaos”. This new genre of design celebrates errors, mistakes, and glitches by combining old 90′s computer clip art with purposefully failed designs. Also known as “data bending”, this style allows artists to explore different forms of anti-art as it takes what were once considered ‘mistakes’ in graphic design and turns them into nostalgic masterpieces.
