Also known as the radical 60s or the swinging 60s, this period was a combination of highs and lows: from the I Love Lucy franchise to various civil rights movements, Bob Dylan music to the assassination of JFK.
The 70s on the other hand, felt like a continuation of the past era – albeit more exciting and perhaps, even turbulent. There’s the introduction of the first space shuttle, the birth of Apple, Michael Jackson, and disco fever.
But however you remember these wonderful times, you can always relive these vintage vibes in your own designs. In this light, here are some groovy psychedelic fonts that are sure to trigger some happy memories.
