208 Retro Photoshop Patterns

I’ve been noticing lately, much to my delight, that there seems to be a resurgence in retro themed web designs.  Whether we’re feeling nostalgic for the classic floral wallpaper in Grandma’s old kitchen or simply watching too much Mad Men; retro appears to be in vogue.

This has led me to scouring the Internets on the prowl for the perfect retro Photoshop pattern.  I ended up finding 208 of ‘em, and thought I’d share them with you.  Enjoy, daddy-o.

  1. Nice work Andrew! You made my life so much easier with this post. Great collection of patterns, don’t know if I’ll ever have use for them but nice to have them all in one place now. Have a Digg on me;)

  2. It should be noted that a lot of Deviant Art’s work is licensed for non-commercial use only. Just FYI…

  3. @Curvball – Thanks, man. I always appreciate a digg :)

    @DA – Good point. If a pattern has any restrictions they will be listed on their respective download pages.
