Finding Font-astic New Fonts!

Are you having trouble getting started or making progress on the Architect Exam?!?? Is the self-guided nature of the ARE not working for you?

Join our virtual study group. The ARE Boot Camp offers a syllabus, a schedule with deadlines, people to study with, and accountability. To help you study for the Architect Exam, the program is organized similarly to a design studio.

We recently started accepting applications for sessions that are beginning in January and February 2018 for both ARE 4.0 and 5.0.  It's time to get started with making progress on the Architect Registration Exam.

In the past, I wrote a blog post about a really cool tool that lets you try out all the fonts that are preloaded into your computer by seeing them all on one big webpage. I love this tool and use it all the time. Finding the perfect font couldn’t be any easier.

Recently, I posted a  new blogpost every single day on Young Architect. It was pretty intense challenge for myself and uring that time I wrote and photoshopped a ton of images. I don’t remember how I found it but I discovered another really helpful resource around fonts.

Similarly, to wordmark, 1001 Fonts lets you test out all the different fonts, except all these fonts are also available to download for free! And there are a ton of really good ones too!

Let me explain that again…

Wordmark.It lets you test out the fonts that are already preloaded into your computer.

1001 Fonts lets you test out thousands of fonts that you can then easily download and install once you find the right one.

Ironically with thousands of fonts to choose from I later learned I kept choosing the Fonts I had previously picked for other projects.

I hope this helps with your design work and any font choosing you have to do in the future.

Oh Wait.

I almost forgot. Here is the Architect hand lettering font.

Architect Font

The Architect’s Daughter is also an excellent font too.
