Don’t like the default WordPress fonts on your theme? We got you covered. In this article, I’ll show you how to add your custom fonts to your new WordPress site. If a brand were a person, the sound of their bespoke font would be like their voice. The sound of that person’s voice will support any ideas they may have voiced.

What are the benefits of a custom Font?

We want the brands we develop to be recognizable across all of their communication channels including your new pages.

A unique font acts as a crucial link that unifies a brand’s identity and gives the project the freedom to clearly and consistently communicate its message and purpose.
