20 Functional Icon Fonts That You Can Use Just About Anywhere

Icons are commonplace nowadays. Even the least tech-savvy person is familiar with them. You see them on computer screens, smartphones, electronic billboard ads, and even on your smart TV.

They’re like a universal form of communication. People recognize most of them because they mean the same thing regardless of country or culture. For example: arrows point towards the next action or instruction. A checkmark icon on the other hand, means ‘done’ or ‘finished’.

 

What are Icon Fonts?

An icon font is basically a font with glyphs and symbols instead of the usual letters and numbers. They’re often used by web developers as they’re easy to setup and to style. Icon fonts are normally styled using CSS. They come as vectors, which mean they retain quality despite resizing. They’re the go-to solution for responsive design because they work in almost any device – from desktops, tablets, to smartphones.

The first known icons appeared in 1973 on the Xerox Alto, the first computer to support an operating system (OS) based on a graphical user interface (GUI). It’s believed that this research computer was the inspiration for the 1983 Apple Lisa, one of the first personal computers developed by Apple.

A few of the earliest icons we know today – such as the trash bin, calculator, file, and folder – were available on both machines, making user interaction easier. By the time the Apple Macintosh 1.0 was released, icons became fancier, thanks to American artist and graphic designer, Susan Kare.

Her principle that icons should be ‘clear, concise, and memorable’ is still the standard followed by fellow designers at present.
