We LOVE Retro – the movie

Do you love retro and vintage? Then enter the world of Nostalgic-Art and take a look behind the scenes. Follow the production process of a tin sign from the design to the production on to the final sale in the corner shop.

Nostalgic-Art builds the bridge between tradition and modern spirit

The production and distribution of advertising signs has a long tradition. However, in the last 20 years the market has changed a lot and became what it is today. On the one hand, our products are a piece of brand history and embody tradition, quality and longevity. On the other hand, the beautiful motifs with popular brands are retro, trendy and stylish. Depending on the subject, they appeal to a broad target group, from grandfathers to teenagers, from housewives to Porsche drivers. And maybe that’s why it requires a special company to be the market leader in this industry with these products.

The Kanonenhalle

Our office is located in the landmarked Kanonenhalle (Cannon Hall) at the historic Borsig site in Berlin. The Kanonenhalle was built in 1916 and renovated according to the most modern aspects in 2009. This place enables us to work efficiently and creatively in a stylish environment. We are convinced that the Kanonenhalle embodies what Nostalgic-Art has stood for, for many years: Achieving highly productive and extremely efficient results through the contemporary use of a historic object. For good reasons a large number of proprietary resources were involved in the renovation of the building. From the warehouse operatives to the graphics department and the management, many employees were involved in the planning and project management. The result makes us proud and happy and we are all very pleased that the Kanonenhalle was honored in 2010 by the district administration with the Builder Award 2010.
