Whether you use Adobe Premiere or Apple Final Cut, or any other video editing system, not all fonts look great in video. In fact, many fonts that look lovely on the computer, or in print, look awful when used as a title in a video project.

In this short video tutorial, Larry Jordan showcases which fonts work, which ones don’t, and what you need to consider when creating titles for your video projects.

NOTE: This demo is part of a session on Premiere Pro CC, but the results are the same in any NLE.

    I am using Premiere pro CC 15, and there there isn’t any Geometric, Futura or Formata. Is there any way to add these fonts to Adobe premiere pro?

    • Larry says:


      Fonts in Premiere, like all other Macintosh applications, are not specific to the application. They are installed into the operating system itself using FontBook. (Its in your Applications folder.)

      There are literally thousands of fonts that can be purchased and installed. Prices continue to fall and all these fonts are ones I’ve purchased over the years. Do a Google search to find a store.
