Adobe Font Finder

Fonts. What designer doesn’t have too many? And we are always on the hunt for more.

The internet is a goldmine for fonts, but it’s not always easy to find just the font you’re looking for. It’s always good to have another font tool in your arsenal, and with that in mind we’re giving you a heads up on the Adobe Font Finder.

Adobe’s Font Finder works in a similar fashion to many online font tools, but in this case it’s wrapped into a slick Flash presentation that works fast and looks sharp.

Enter a bit of text for the samples to display in, check a few of the many font options to narrow down your search — and voila!

The fonts I checked out from my initial review of the site all seemed to lead to paid fonts, and clicking on any of the search results will take you to Adobe’s online font store.

Of course, you may want/need to purchase on of these fonts, but it’s also easy enough to use the tool to get some inspiration, or even find a font you may already have buried in your own type collection already.

I’ve included some screenshots below to give you an idea of the range of font attributes you have the ability to search by. They are pretty extensive compared to many of the free font sites I’ve used, but then again they do want you to buy something from them.

Have a great font resource of your own? Please share it with us in the comments section below.
