Here at CSS Reset, we’re big fans of using icon fonts in place of .pngs or other images in our projects. You may have noticed that we usually use Font Awesome in our tutorials that require an icon font, but Font Awesome is hardly your only option when it comes to free and easily accessible icon fonts. We Love Font Icons is a site that hosts a number of different free icon fonts. We Love Font Icons works similarly to Google Fonts in that it hosts many different collections of font icon families, and you simply choose the ones you want to work with and the code for those font families will be generated for you.
Check out a list of some of our favorites from their collection below.
Entypo is a modern collection of useful pictograms that would be perfect to use in any of your upcoming projects. Entypo’s collection includes common iconography along with social media icons.
