dog-fontsYou’re browsing the internet, and stumble across a font that you love. It looks a bit like Futura, but in more of a Gotham than a Papyrus kinda way. You must have it. And although you don’t know what it’s called, you’re willing to scour the internet night and day until you find it.

Introducing:

How does it help:
What The Font lets you to upload an image containing the font in question. It then scans the image, searches it’s database for a match, and spits out the name of the font in question.

Perfect for finding your long lost font solemate, or helping clients identify the font used in their logo/stationery if they no longer have the original vector files.

Pro:
If it can’t find an exact font match, it will find/recommend options that are very (very) close.

Con:
Most fonts in the search results are paid/commercial options so if you require a few different weights, it can become expensive. Don’t forget that google webfonts is your friend, especially when a similar but alternative font can be an option.
