String comment = "I saw a lot of this style of pics on trendlist.org. it has been prominent everywhere since around 2010, and recently it got more mainstream exposure with Life of Pablo.
who exactly started it? any theory to it, what is it inspired by? I am late to the party and I've seen no discussion of it.
I see it's kinda lo-fi/ironic, very minimalistic, and makes '90s references like web 1.0 and rave flyers; the cropping and counter-intuitive placement of elements evokes David Carson vibes. But, I'm reading a lot of early 20th century influence in it too, like Piet Zwart/Theo Van Doesburg/Jan Tsichold/early Bauhaus, with all the use of overprint, ladder type, generous white space, vertical type, and so on. Sometimes there's also a Memphis-style wiggly line there, or Art Deco geometric typefaces. I guess that's a retro part of it.";
