13 Apr WTF?
WTF as in “What The Font.” (Were you expecting something else?)
I saw a really nice font on a website, but I wasn’t sure which typeface it was. I tried viewing the page source to see if the font was mentioned. Alas, no luck. Then I remembered that I could do a reverse font lookup.
There are a number of tools out there to do this, but I use WhatTheFont!
I saved a screenshot of the typeface and then uploaded that file to the WTF(!) website. The software then analysed the file, separating individual characters.
Then I corrected any letters that were not recognized accurately (e.g. a question mark was perceived as a “9”).
A new page appeared listing the most likely suspects. In this case, Kettering and Memphis Light.
Et voilà! (or, as some folks say, “Wah-LAH!”)
I had my answer. Technology is a beautiful thing. Check it out for yourself.
