Join Anne Grundhoefer for an in-depth discussion in this video Installing fonts for this course, part of Managing a Design System with Sketch.
- [Instructor] So in order to get the exercise files to look exactly like mine you are going to need to download two fonts, if you don't already have them. Now the first font is Open Sans and the second font is Montserrat. So I'm going to show you exactly how to download these fonts so that you use them in your Sketch file. They're both free, luckily, so if you just want to go to fonts.google.com. And what I usually do, actually Open Sans is right here 'cause it's a very popular font. So you can just click this add button, and you'll notice down here that we have one family selected.
And then I'm just going to search for the second one. Montserrat, which comes up right here. So I'm just going to click that plus button here. And I'm going to go down here since we have two families selected. Montserrat and Open Sans. And it's going to give me all of the styles that we're going to need and, actually what I'm just going to do here is click this Download button. And you'll notice that we get this zip file down here. And here they are. So if you click on these you have Montserrat and Open Sans.
So you'll get all of these nice styles, so you can just select all of these and open them with your Font Book. And then it's going to ask to install. And there it is. So one down, one to go. You want to come back here and grab Open Sans. Just select these, right-click, and open with your Font Book. And go ahead and install.
And there we go. So then what you're going to do is you can just close out of Font Book and you could open your exercise files and you'll be ready to go.
