Im wondering if their are a set of letters in the alphabet that are best to look at when identifying a font.
It varies, but a and g.
Traditionally, Hamburgefonts (despite no diagonals). See previous threads…
I wonder what automated WTF uses.
Thanks very much everyone! Nick shinn I have another question and i hope im not bothering you to much with to many questions, but what are diagonals?
Diagonals are the letters that have slanted strokes, namely kvwxyz.
Which is why a popular alternative to Hamburgefonts is Handgloves.
You could personalize it with your own selection of place name, eg, Orangeville (where I live). The "ill" is quite informative of text color.
Thanks guys i've really learned allot from this post !! Your help and attention is highly appreciated :)
