If you need to find out what font has been used in a specific ad, logo or creative display, here are three free tools that you can use to identify the original typeface.
MyFonts.com WhatTheFont and Whathefontis.com are two free web apps which allow you to upload a screenshot of the text that contains the font that you need to identify. Once the image is uploaded you simply need to help the software identify different characters by suggesting what letters are present in the original text.
At this point the service will suggest and display a number of typefaces that come closest to the character traits of the image you have submitted.
A third alternative, Identifont.com, allows you to search and find typefaces by searching them by name, style/look, author or symbols contained in it.
Three apps to keep in your creative designer toolkit.
