List of sites with fonts

Often students ask me about where to find good fonts. If you subscribe to the cloud, you can use typekit.com

A lot of my clients are bound to the set of corporate fonts they always use. But when we make a rebrand, we do an extensive typography exploration. Often we have seen the latest fad somewhere else, and with the site “what the font” or app on iPhones, you can look up the name. 

Here are some links to type foundries or websites with fonts. If you know some others, please add the links to the discussion.

Fontbase is a good free type-manager app for desktop (you can also use fontbook on mac). It only takes newer formats (not the old suitcase or atm files)

also, Bethany Heck knows a lot about how to choose good fonts:
