Although the 70s were more known for disco and bell bottoms, there was more to it than meets the eye. Many people, even historians, will say that this period felt like an extension of the 60s – colorful, vibrant, yet chaotic.
A few notable events of the time include: the ‘New Right’ political movement, the Watergate scandal, the first Earth Day, the approval of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), and the debut of the first wrap dress by Diane von Furstenberg. It was the decade of exploration of liberties and political involvement.
Don’t feel bad that you missed the ‘Me Decade’. You can still evoke the 70s vibes when you use these groovy fonts.
