Typeface is a beautiful font manager that helps you pick the perfect font for your designs. Good typography is one of the most important aspects of design. But it is often hard to find the font that conveys just the right emotion, especially if you’re not sure yet what you’re looking for. With a minimal interface and total focus on your fonts Typeface tries to make browsing your collection exciting and easy, such that you’ll always find just the font you need.

Browse swiftly through your library without any distraction. Typeface lets you explore all your installed and imported fonts with live customization of preview text and size.
Reveal every detail
View the Unicode characters that fonts support or inspect the metadata on the info tab. You can even compare to characters of another font to see the small — and big — differences.
Typography by night
The Night theme will let you preview fonts in the dark, which is as eye-soothing as watching fluffy kittens cuddle. If you’re feeling adventurous you may rock this theme during the day as well.
Tag, you’re it
The Typeface offers a very flexible and easy to use tagging system that lets you keep even the largest font libraries under control. Nest tags, combine tags, invert tags or filter tags; spend less time searching, more designing.
Designed to get out of your way: swipe to collapse the sidebar and focus on font previews. While dragging it will automatically expand and highlight already attached tags.
Imported locations are kept up-to-date automatically. Just point Typeface to a directory on your Mac and newly downloaded fonts are added on refresh.
Hands-free activation of fonts and you won’t even notice it. Of course, you can also manually activate and deactivate any font when you need to use them.
