This free font is inspired by the ’60s flower power movement

Wear your fave font on your sleeve, kids, because we found another one we’re obsessed with. Hint: It reminds us of the Powerpuff Girls. 

Coming in with its sugar, spice and everything nice spirit, “Sesenta” is the newest creation by visual artist and illustrator Gabe Mabazza of Trust Ur Eyes. In an Instagram post, the young creative shared that it’s her first time to work with actual type. “Sesenta is fun, stylistic, and high on peace and love,” she describes.

That’s because this stunning blocky typeface pays homage to the hippie culture and flower power movement of the 1960s, which rose to oppose the United States’ involvement in the Vietnam War. Remember the hippies and their slogan “make love, not war?” Yeah, that free-spirited bunch. And it became a cultural triumph too after people eventually stuck with the fashion trend of hypercolorful ‘fits and flower-dressing. It’s this same spirit that reflects the joy and confidence of “Sesenta.”

Thanks to its self-assured uppercase appearance and ball terminals, “Sesenta” is up next in your fun font rotation. Download it for free here.
