Pink Syrup


Heavily inspired by my 80s/90s childhood, Pink Syrup is an artistic nod to the modern wave of retro nostalgia imagery and the vaporwave music scene.

Usually I aim for a specific look with my designs but Pink Syrup is about conveying a specific 'feel', with designs reminiscent of a time before the internet. Where colour-change shirts, rollerblades and tamagotchis were all the rage, our hair was crimped, our clothing was bright and didn't match, and we had those weird scrunchy bubbly socks... you know the ones I'm talkin about!

The Imposter
