The style that is new wave can definitely be seen adopting some of what the punk style had. Some rebellious typography that uses the modern text that was the helvetica craze. My favorite part about the new wave design is the color usage. The bright neon colors, or pastel washed out coloring, and of course the moderate primary, secondary, or complementary. The overall view of new wave designs is a retro and punk rock feel. In all the new wave design to me is a great mixture or respecting the greats and possibly a little bit of mocking, of the conservative greats.
