A Quick Tip for Choosing Fonts

I recently came across a site that is very useful if you have trouble deciding on which font to use for your projects.  It is called wordmark and you'll find it HERE.

When you go to the site it may be a bit difficult to understand how to use it.  All you need to do is to type the word or phrase you want to use in the center box (where it says "wordmark" in the image above).  After you type the words you want to use, click on the box in the center that says "load fonts" and the phrase you typed will appear in all of the fonts loaded on your computer.

You can scroll through the list and select the fonts you like the best.  Then you can click on "filter selected" at the top right and see just these fonts so you can make your choice.

You can make the samples larger or smaller, change from positive to negative images and alter the capitalization by clicking on the appropriate sections of the top bar. 

Sometimes you think you know which font you want but you discover that the word you are using doesn't look as nice as you thought it would.  This site could save lots of time and help you make the best choice quickly and confidently.
