whatfontisthis What font is this? Almost everyday we search something on our favorite search engines, be it Google, Yahoo!, MSN, etc. We ask these search engines to find websites that’s related or having relations with the keywords we entered. If we enter “kitchen appliances” in the search box, we will get the site lists which has some content related to kitchen and it’s appliances. I’m sure most of us already know that long time ago.

Yesterday, a friend which also my co-worker showed me a logo and asked me, “Do you know what is the name of font used in this logo? Perhaps you recognized a name? I need it for my presentation slides.” I said, “There are tons of fonts existed in this world, and there’s no way I can recognize which fonts is this. I doubt I can recognize this fonts. But I’ll check the internet.”

Then I started to search something to help him solve this problem. I found several font search engines. Where you can type the fonts’ name you would like to download (or buy if it’s not free) in the search box, and you’ll get the list of the fonts that named as what you typed. If you typed “Impact”, then these fonts search engines will show you the links to get it. But of course these search engines cannot help my friend. We don’t have a clue what is this fonts’ name. All we have is the logo in .PNG format.

After searching for more information about this problem, finally I found something new to myself. It’s a font search engine based on how they look in an picture file. I didn’t know this thing exists. Neat huh? zz 0 What font is this?

So I started to upload the logo he showed me before.

It reconfirmed the recognitions and let me remap the alphabet recognitions result.

After I remapped all the misrecognized characters, I submitted it.

And voila! This search engine showed me some fonts which 90% matched with the one looks in the logo. It also showed me the name of the fonts showed there. zz 16 What font is this?

 

This search engine does a very good job. It will be very useful, especially for web designers, logo designers, etc. It’s much more easier to have your logo checked by this search engine. It helps us to find a specific font’s name and then we can either buy it directly from the site, or use the font’s name we got as the keyword in normal website’s search engines for more informations about the fonts, and download links (if available).
