This is nothing new, Design is never “new” it’s always an adaption of something else. Heck, look around dribbble the “cool” thing to do is make things look like they where made in the 60′s, 70′s… is that new? no, it’s either better than it was, or repeated exactly how it was. Likewise design does not get worse… I’m pretty sure the 80′s brought us the worst we can see of the web. So we are just repeated bad design as well… I guess we could even be making “bad” design better… but that is still bad design.
I have a habit of collecting things. Here are a bunch of analog synthesizers I’ve grabbed from all over the web. Nothing more beautiful than woodgrain, slick panels and a billion knobs. Sorry, I don’t know much about them… and most of them came off tumblr so they just link back to a blackhole.
Came across these last week. I love the simplicity, clean lines and detail. Each catches your eye and leaves you gandering in it’s beauty. Check em out over yonder
