I love when people find smart solutions to problems. Designer Daniel Bruce is one of them, and he’s done a icon set as a font, Entypo, that you can embed the icons as text, instead of images. That means you can do all kind of crazy things with them, adding any effect that you can do with text. But maybe even more importantly, it’s resolution independent since it’s completely vector-based. No thinking about retina adjustments and finally it both saves a lot of work and is resource efficient.
I’ve used entypo in a couple of projects but I found it hard to figure out which keys I should use for the icon I wanted to use, so I’ve made a keyset these beloved entypo pictograms. That’s it really. If you like and use these icons, it might help. Spread the word.
