One of the issues designers run into is trying to find that exact font. That exact font in their client’s logo. That exact font that they want in their design. That exact font they need to complete their project. With these two tools, you’ll see how to uncover the mystery of finding that exact font… Okay, maybe not the exact font all the time, but pretty close alternates that match it.
No seriously, WhatTheFont is one tool that designers can use to uncover their unknown fonts. Simply got to their website and upload a picture of the font you are trying to find. WhatTheFont will analyze the picture and come up with the best matching typeface solutions.
Make sure that the picture you upload is clear and has only one font in it. It might not generate the exact font that you have dreamed of, but it will produce some very similar ones that you may be able to use. With over 100,000 digital fonts online, it can be quite difficult to find that exact one. There are sure to be duplicates or nearly identical fonts that may be adequate.
Fontspring is another tool that is nearly identical to WhatTheFont. Upload an image that holds the font and see what results may come. Basically if one of these tools doesn’t find the font you are looking for, try the other one.
After all, you may not be able to find that exact font. You can search and search until your eyes fall out of your head, but it’s always best to check with these tools first. They may lead you to a typeface that meets your needs. You can also manually check fonts on one of these websites below. Some have categories so that you can narrow down what the font looks like.
