Revisiting Icon Fonts

I’ve been using icon fonts on my projects for about a year now, and they’ve quickly become my preferred way to include icons on a site.

Icon fonts are easy to use, well supported, look gorgeous on retina screens, and are great for site performance. Simply put, they’re awesome.

Today, I updated my tutorial on how to use icon fonts based on some of the things I’ve learned over the last year. Check it out.

🚀 I just relaunched my Vanilla JS Pocket Guides with new code examples and real projects to help tie everything you’ll learn together. Check it out.
