I'm doing a school project on the retro design movement and since it's based on getting
ideas from past styles and artwork, I've come across a little question of my own.
Where do you draw the line when it comes to calling something "retro" and then blatenly stealing
an idea from a past piece of work. Most notably would be the Paula Scher "swatch" ad in the 80's replicating a work done in the
20's. Also and most recently the Franz Ferdinand cd cover taking the same image from the "Swatch" ad recently mentioned.
What is Retro and where do you draw the line.
also if you can point me to any good reference material regarding
this issue, that would be sweet too!
