Steampunk is a genre of design that has existed for quite a while. It usually takes inspiration from the 19th century, usually with a Victorian or Wild West backdrop, to re-create a fantastic, fictional world. It’s highly recognizable because of the use of steam, gears, swirls, brass, and copper elements.
Steampunk can be seen in various industries, such as in art, interior decor, fashion, literature, as well as product and packaging design. They can have a classic or modern appeal. In design, steampunk can look amazing in black and white (when done right!).
