One of the biggest surprises of the ’80s style revival has been the birth of the ’80s Tumblr. When I started this blog two years ago, I never could have foreseen the extent to which Tumblr would fuel a love of ’80s design. Yet it has been one of my greatest joys, as ’80s art and design images are now abundant and accessible to the masses. In the spirit of celebrating the 1980s Tumblr phenomenon, we’ll be reveling in Tumblr pics from time to time, bringing you the best that enthusiasts of our favorite decade have to offer. Today is no exception…

Speaking of geometry, below we see one of Braceli‘s many colorful images. If you love vibrant products and ’80s tidbits, be sure to check out this Tumblr:
