FYI Monday: Beautiful Retro Typography by Alex Varanese

This post is part of the For Your Inspiration Monday Series showcasing the most inspiring designs out there. Each week a new artist or design style will be presented in order to get your creative juices flowing for the upcoming week. I hope you enjoy the series.
Alex Varanese is a graphic designer from San Francisco. Using vintage pop culture reference combined with mostly red colour palettes he gives his art a very distinct look. I’m particularly fond of his typographic designs. Believe me when I tell you that you have to check out his portfolio for more inspiration. Furthermore you can follow Alex on Twitter.
