HOW TO DOWNLOAD & INSTALL FONTS.
So, let's say you're convinced (obviously) that your collection could do with some font upgrades. How do you go from something you like to something you can type? Let's break this down. And, I know the guidethrough above is on MacOS, (aka what a snob) but don't worry I'll cover Windows too. I've picked Poppins from the Google Fonts collection to take you through the process.
Head over to Google Fonts
(or anywhere that has open-source fonts to download) and find yourself the typeface of your choosing or Poppins for the sake of this guide.
Click the red plus button beside Poppins and a black tab will appear below. Hit the black tab and you'll see the download icon on the top-right. Click to download your font files.
Click the downloaded files so they unzip and appear as .ttf or .otf files.
Step IV (Windows folk):
Select all files that you got after extracting the .zip file (except .txt file), right-click, click Install to add to your font collection on your PC.
Step IV (Mac bros)
: Drag and drop the font files into your Mac's 'Font Book'.
You're actually ready to go. To try them out, go into any of your text or design applications like Word, Pages or Photoshop and you'll find Poppins in your Font dropdown. And that's it! Use them like you would any font that was pre-installed into your device.
