Before getting to the web tool, let's see why it is useful to identify fonts from templates, UI kits, graphics, etc.
Identifying fonts is super useful
Graphic designers, marketers, web developers, writers, agencies, and many others (printing shirts shops, entrepreneurs taking personal care of their social media accounts) are looking for great new fonts each moment.
They know perfectly that a cool font will transform a website, a newsletter, a picture, or a book cover.
And in plus they also know that they need to carefully and correctly match the font they pick with the overall design, message, and other fonts that might be on the same page.
That is why they never have enough fonts and they constantly look for new ones.
Where do they look for new fonts?
Most of the people that love fonts look for new designs on blogs that write about fonts and typography.
They also read magazines and books about fonts.
But many others are looking for fonts everywhere.
By everywhere I mean:
Printed and digital magazines.
Magazine and book covers.
Graphics of all kinds.
And any other stuff.
Whenever they see a font they like, they take a shot and use the tool that I will soon present to you, to identify the font.
This is not just a super-smart and creative approach, it is also simple, quick, and 100% free.
