WEBSITE OF THE DAY: Identifont

Some are fat. Some are thin.

Some are strident, confident and bold.

Some lean a little bit to the right.

Some are utterly useless on just about every occasion you can think of.

Some are almost indistinguishable from each other, and some are just plain boring.

No, we’re not talking about politicians, we’re talking about fonts.

Finding the right font can be a challenge at the best of times, but when you’re trying to match one, it can be a hopeless task. There are some people who can tell the difference between weights of Helvetica at a single glance, but unless you have access to one of these masters of the dark arts of typography (they’re usually the ones wearing trendy horn-rimmed glasses and brightly coloured socks) can we suggest www.identifont.com, a handy way to find the font you’re looking for just by answering a few basic questions.

A useful addition to any creative’s bookmark collection.
