Way back in October of 2010, the Chinese year of the tiger, the fine people at Design Float whipped up some outstanding vintage ad posters representing modern online brands as a way of simply showing that vintage is always a good choice for whatever concept you might be working on. Of course they picked the most popular online and social media brands – Google, Skype, Twitter, etc. – but the ads still looked awesome, thus proving their point.
Fast forward to a few weeks ago, when the Fark community got a hold of Design Float’s work and the Farksters went to town, creating their own versions of vintage ads for a slew of generalized modern products. Basically, it was awesome, creative chaos and it needs to be shared. After the jump, you can check out Design Float’s original work, the best of the Fark community’s photoshopping, and some of my own contributions (thanks to Plan 59) to the cause.
