I've been helping my relative do some poster work for her business.

I have no experience in using Chinese fonts.

What are some of the fonts commonly used?

Any recommendation or resources? Thanks! smile.gif

Hi,

You can try iFonts字体助手 and is pretty easy to use.

They are more than 1000+ chinese fonts and 400+ is for free and able for commercial use so it should be enough.

But if you wish to use the premium fonts, you may try the free trial for 3-7 days if I'm not wrong.

Also they are intergated with latest Adobe Illustrator and other design tool like Sketch.

I'm sure they also work well on other design tools that are not covered.

Just pick whatever fonts you feel suitable for your design and it will automatically change without installing the fonts.

I'm still using it until now, so far so good. But the main problem is only if you are not turning on the iFonts字体助手 before opening your AI (Adobe Illustrator) you may get missing font pop-up window.

Take note on this. smile.gif

Good luck and have a nice day!

Try Ancient Chinese Seal Script, aka 篆文.

I always go with Noto Sans SC, you can find it on Google Fonts.
