Alex Varanese - Future-Retroism

The term retro-futurism is pretty common these days and refers to history's view of what future worlds would be like. Flying cars, towering skyscrapers, and interplanetary travel are all hallmarks of the genre. But what if somebody took inventions that had come to pass and then infused them with a decades-old design sensibility. Well, I guess you'd get future-retroism, and that is exactly what designer Alex Varanese is dishing up with these awesome fake ads from the seventies. Nice job. I'll take one of each.
