How to install a font on Mac

To install a font on Mac follow the following steps:

  • Make sure to unpack the zipped folder.
  • Go to the folder with the fonts and double click on either the OTF or TTF font file (we always recommend the OTF file).
  • After you double click a window will open with a preview of the font and a small button at the bottom saying “Install”.
  • Click install.
  • Make sure to restart your application (and if that doesn’t work restart your computer).
