I want to design an application about "Music" ( and "Album Cover" ), but I can't find sufficient font that has traditional feeling ( Similar to 1970-1980s Album covers ).

This is my basic design of the application but as you can see it doesn't have any traditional feeling that I've mentioned. ( I've used "Cormorant Garamond" font for Headline, "Montserrat" and "Open Sans" for covers. )

I've searched in web for fonts got used in album covers and I find "ITC Clearface" , "Gentium Basic" , "Taviraj" and "Cormorant Garamond" useful, but I am looking for something slightly different ! Something with a sense of "Old jazz" or "Blues" music.

For example :

What is your font suggestions about this project ? ( Preferably either from fonts.google.com or other free fonts )

  • Is it an application specifically dealing with retro album covers from the 70's and 80's or does it concern covers from all times? – mayersdesign Aug 22 '17 at 10:42

    This is quite a broad question, have you searched the web for fonts? Which ones have you found? Have you done a research on 70-80's aesthetics? – Luciano Aug 22 '17 at 11:22
  • @Luciano I've made some changes. – daniel nasiri Aug 24 '17 at 9:09
