Free Font Software for Graphic Design
There are plenty of great free resources on the net. This article offers a curated list of the best-of-the-best free resources, to help you find what you really need.
Unless otherwise noted, these resources are free for both personal and commercial work—but remember to always check the license before using someone else’s work.
Working with Fonts
What the Font is an automated tool that examines images to identify the fonts in them. It also has a community forum that could help if the tool fails.
Wordmark visually displays all your fonts at once. It’s great for picking a font for a workmark. There’s no install needed, although it requires Flash in your browser.
That’s the end of my list of resources that have been indispensible in my career. Do you have a favourite resource that I missed? Drop me a message.
