FontAwesome and Icon Fonts

FontAwesome and Icon Fonts

Icon fonts are used in modern web design. They are fun and practical because they allow you to add scalable vector artwork to your designs in a single step. Chances are you’ve seen them in action, but you might not be exactly clear on how to create your own. Basically, icon fonts are just fonts, but instead of containing letters or numbers, they contain symbols, logos and icons. Icon fonts can be styled with CSS in the same way you style regular text which has made them a popular choice on the web. Since icon Fonts are vector-based, they can be scaled without affecting their quality.  This means they can change in dimension without becoming pixelated and fuzzy.
90 Second Website Builder has a dedicated object for FontAwesome – a popular icon library with many styling options – as well as the more generic Icon Font library, giving you well over a thousand icon choices with which to design with.
This video shows an example and demonstration of using FontAwesome in your 90 Second Website Builder projects.
