Of everything Canva offers, fonts always seem to be the biggest topic of conversation. From uploading your own fonts to finding equivalents to suit your project, it’s not a perfect process, but it’s at least one that’s available and more than suitable (especially in light of everything else the design platform has to offer).
Today we are looking at which fonts you know and love – and expect to find in Canva – can be replaced with close and near identical equivalents. While we’ve already talked about finding an Arial font in Canva, let’s dive into that and a lot more. We’ll start with the most popular fonts in the world, while adding in others from pop culture, TV, movies, and more.
|Arial||Arielle or Arimo|
|Franklin Gothic||Source Sans Pro|
|Times New Roman||Times Neu Roman|
Finding Other Font Equivalents
If you have a font not on this list that you’d like to find an equivalent for, here are a couple of things to try. One, simply search for the font in Canva. If the font isn’t an option, you might see a message like this as I did with Bembo.
Another option I’ve found useful is checking Twitter. Given organizations are much more responsive to service questions on social media, many people turn to Twitter to ask about a particular font. Here is an example about finding that Arial replacement.
Hi Jo! Arialle can substitute Arial and Glacial Indifference looks pretty close to Future. Hope that helps! 😉 ^cc— Canva (@canva) July 12, 2017
