The 70s are back!


It's freebie time!

I have created them inspired by some seventies magazines I was researching & some graphic assets I found in an old typography book on Internet Archive, where you can download and /or research thousands of typographic books and material.

I created 15 different Retro Graphic Assets Lines in black (svg). 

Plus, 

an ampersand from the Akzidenz Grotesk Fett Blei (Public Domain).

an ampersand of my creation, and;

an Aldus Leaf in svg format.

Do you know what is a SVG file? Read it here:

In the examples, I change the colors and made repetitions. If you need a free graphic editor, check Photopea dot com. I was surprised is capable of editing even Adobe Illustrator files.

I created the SVG files using the free Inkscape software & Photoshop for the rest of the work.





And I made some examples layouts as posters or magazines covers:

The first one is a fictional tennis magazine that is the cover of this article, with the fantastic photography of  Cotton ( ig: cottonbro ). The coloring was made with my free LUTs inspired by Wes Anderson movies, the most downloaded freebie I have created.

The second is a layout inspired by the Macleans Magazine ( 1970-06-01), found on Internet Archive. The Lorem Ipsum is zombieipsum dot com. The photography is mine, from the men on the beach playing Futebol de Areia. Check more at https://pablolarah.tumblr.com


The third example layout is inspired by the german Novum (April 4, 1972).
