Groovy started out as a prospective variant in the Flashback series but very quickly established its own distinct appearance, especially with the lower case letters blending so well into the format. There wasn’t any preconceived idea to design a retro looking font in principle, it simply evolved that way, but I do think it has several distinct characteristics reminiscent of style genres from the 70’s. It’s probably quite subliminal and like me, you may find yourself thinking, what does that remind me of?
The double-entendre’d title is quite apt too, not merely for reasons of its outwardly retro appearance but also because of the considered, rounded elements forming the negative spaces throughout. The font also has something of a chameleon-like personality, being both adaptable and capable of having a trendy / fun appearance, or alternatively something solid and stylish, depending on the use, as demonstrated in the banner examples here.
