How many times have you wanted to know the font that is being used, either for a future project, or because you need to replicate it now for a client? For many people, matching fonts can be time consuming and hard to achieve.

In this video tutorial, Kevin McAuliffe looks at WHAT THE FONT from MyFont.com and shows how simple it is to use and how effective it can be in your font searches. He also explores a method to debug results when you are unsuccessful in your search due to the complexity of an image. He then looks at the downloadable iPhone app that you can use in your font searches.

Check out this latest tutorial by Keven P. McAuliffe, online now.
