Identify Fonts Easily With Identifont

How to Identify Fonts — Even Easier

This isn't the first time I've told you how to identify fonts — What the Font can usually do the trick, but this way is even easier, and more accurate, too. Identifont is a website that identifies fonts — especially the really wily ones, and it's a pretty low-tech approach.

You "describe" what certain letters look like in a font, with their prompts of course, and then Identifont figures out what it is and tells you. You all already know of my love for fonts, so this will just increase my knowledge.

@krae85 - If you run into a client who's logo and design guidelines are so old and they no longer know what font was used in their previous work.It's pretty common.

This is wonderful. I love to make icons, and I'm always wondering what fonts others are using. I'm gonna go test it! :)

why do you need to be able to recognize different fonts?

I remember having to take "font identification" tests in my typography class back in my university days. This is exactly how we used to learn how to tell fonts apart, based on certain unique letters. Very cool :)
