One of the many time consuming projects graphic designers can get into is re-creating logos from print or old files. Usually the biggest hassle is trying to find the fonts – do I have that exact one or not? If not which one is it? There are many great font sites on the web, but when you have to find an EXACT replica I would highly recommend using “What the Font” to make the search less of a headache!
I used it recently with only three letters of a logo I cropped out of a busy, bright banner – and it did a quick job of identifying CORRECTLY the font I needed! I read the hints they suggested and made sure the letters were not touching and horizontal, so I’m sure that helped! But I was very happy with the quick and successful results!
The results also instructed me where to buy the font if I didn’t have it in my already large stash! So I made quick work of it and was able to get to the actual project within a short span of time! NICE!!
