If you work as a professional designer, you will know that you can never get to many icons in your collection. The more sets the bigger diversity you get in your designs, and by that you leave a greater impression on your clients. An alternative but very useful source for working with icons is icon font sets. When icons are delivered as a font, they scale as vectors and their size and color can be controlled in e.g. web sites using the CSS font size and color properties. This makes icon fonts quite powerful and great for making interactive web designs.
Though many web designers prefer using free icon resources and icon sets you can easily find some cool icon fonts that does not cost that much however they give you a larger variation in your design and differs from the designs everyone else are using.
I want to show you some of the coolest sets of icon fonts available in this article and I am sure they will help you find new ways to use icons. If you know of any icon font sets that also should be represented in this list, please share it in a comment. Feel free to share this post with your colleagues on Twitter.
