How to Install Fonts on Windows & Mac

Fonts play a huge part in the graphic design. Wherever you go, you can find them on ads, websites, store fronts, stationery. Fonts can make or break the design. There are hundreds of websites from which you can download the fonts. There are a lot of free fonts available (my favourite website where you can get great fonts is Google Fonts).

Today, I wanted to share with you something that seems obvious to me since I’m a designer, but might not be so easy for all of you. Today we’re going to talk about how to install fonts on Windows and Mac.

Let’s dive in, shall we?!

Before we talk about how to install fonts on your PC or OS, it’s worth to mention that your fonts will be installed on your entire computer, not just one program (like Illustrator*), so you’ll be able to use them on a variety of programs that allow text editing.

This might be shocking to you (since almost every designer I heard of use Mac), but I’ve been a loyal Windows user since I got my first computer. So, first, we’re going to talk about how to install fonts on Windows PC ;)

 

HOW TO INSTALL FONTS ON WINDOWS?

1. Download the font that you want to install (usually it’s packed in the ZIP format).

2. Extract the ZIP file and find either TTF or OTF format (popular font formats)

3. Right-click on one of them and choose Install

4. Done ;)

 

NOTE – if you want to install all of the font styles (light, regular, semi-bold, bold etc.) you can select all (CTRL + A) of TTF or OTF files and then right-click Install

 

HOW TO INSTALL FONTS ON MAC?

 

1. Download the font that you want to install (usually it’s packed in the ZIP format).

2. Extract the ZIP file and find either TTF or OTF format (popular font formats)

3. Double-click on one of the file, on the bottom right, choose Install Font

4. Done ;)

 

Easier than you thought right? Remember, as I said above, the font is installed on the specific computer. If you want to use it on another one, you need to repeat the steps above.

 

PS.

It’s been a while since I posted something here on the blog. I lot things have happened along the way in both my personal and business life. The biggest change is that I got married to the love of my life (we’ve been together for 10 years) less than a week ago, on 11 August! I’m beyond excited to embark on the new chapter of my life with my husband.

Before we got married, we moved to London, UK and things have been hectic with my husband looking for a new job and us looking for a nice, long-term flat to live in.

Our move, made me realize that I didn’t have a healthy life-work balance and now I’m trying to improve that by going out more and cutting out unnecessary tasks at work to focus only on things that move my business forward.

I’m not sure what the future holds, but I’m open and ready for the changes. I’m excited to share them with you! ;)
