Seeking blobby floral 1960s fonts

elzadra's picture

This is a free font called LMS Hippy Chick. My boss wants me to do a 1960s-themed layout and had a sample of something pretty close to this, but I need to use figures, and the font I've downloaded is pretty sketchy and has none.

Any suggestions for fonts like this, or even if I can find a more complete version of this font somewhere? Canada Type's Doobie is close, but a full version of this Hippy Chick font would spare me having to appliqué flowers by hand...

You could probably do a better job at ti than the Hippy Chick designer did...

The typeface is Bell Bottom.
For your own self respect, try to to evoke the 1960s without piling cliché upon cliché.
There are many "hippy" fonts that you could work with.
For instance, why not use Mojo in Illustrator, bending it to resemble a Wes Wilson poster?
Alternatively, cue up Live Dead, take a couple bong hits, and start drawing.
