Love it or hate it. Baz Luhrmann’s depiction of the Roaring 20’s is something to talk about since Art Deco flourished during that time period. While we live in the era of less is more, we here at YTD will take a step back in time to explore and see the intricacies and exuberance of Art Deco.

Art Deco flourished in western Europe and North America during the mid-1920s. The term Art Deco was conceived from “Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industrial Modernes” (International Exposition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts) in the year 1925 at Paris. It is characterized by the use of rich colors, geometric shapes and extravagant ornamentation. The said art style did not only persist in graphic design but almost on everything during that era. Anything and everything seemed theatrical back then and since it does not adhere with any political ideology, it was generally accepted by everyone.

Today we are going to take a look at some of the most amazing art deco-inspired graphic design pieces, both classic and inspired for your inspiration.
