Can anyone identify how this style of graphic is made?

Screenshot_20200330-151312_Reddit.jpgany help would be greatly appreciated.
Any tutorials you could point me in the direction in or recommended software?
I like the imperfections that are look digital yet also with human error.
Thanks you

that's a picture with lots of small ones in.... that really doesn't help us. Want to break it down a little or give us more info because other than saying monotone work there's not much else we can say at those sizes.

You've got several different styles there in all honesty and some are mixing things together.
Most would fall under monotone due to single colours.

Mega Rave is lithograph style to me personally, the asquith one is just a single colour tinted greyscale image.
Lobster thermin imo is mixing a couple of styles, 80's retro text and illustrative people/toxic barrel.

Others might have other ideas though.

Yes, they don't all follow one particular style, like Levi says. You might want to search for vintage, distressed, grunge, retro, half-tone. Put any of
those before 'flyer/poster design tutorial' and you should be sorted. Photoshop or similar would be ideal.

LOL! Reminds me of when I used to make band posters and flyers for club nights in the early 90's.

They're just (or made to look like) artwork that people have used a photocopier to copy images and paste them up together.

You can get a similar effect to digital images using using a few tricks or plug-ins in Ps and Ai.
Have a look on SpoonGraphics or RetroSupply for these or just get a Pritt Stick, some Tippex and a photocopier. ;)

I totally agree that they do look like they have been photocopied! However they have a mix of computer design and human error that's hard to replicate on photoshop, at least as far as I can see. Thanks for your help will experiment with some photocopying!
