Freebie #1: Shock Icon Font




Hello folks!

I think that I have to eventually start sharing freebies with you. First one is a font pack that may be used in web design. It is not only a regular font but a set of symbols that can be used as icons/symbols/graphics on a website.

How does it work? You upload the font to your web server, include it in your stylesheets and use the particular 'text symbols' of the font as icons (etc.). This makes the website load faster, as all the icons that you made with this font's special characters require only one GET call that downloads the font.

Obviously, it has its disadvantages - the symbols are not very effective, as they are only vectors. You can style them with all the CSS text features like color/opacity/text-shadow but you are not able to make effect as fancy as you would achieve using Photoshop or GIMP. Another disadvantage is the fact that not every browser supports custom fonts (or at least so easily; you will have to make a bit more effort to make older IE or mobile browsers support it).

That's it! Only thing you need to do to get the font pack is to share the offer with Twitter of Facebook - I think that is not a problem, especially when some of your followers are web deisgners as well - they will surely thank you for letting them know about this bargain! Oh, I forgot - the font pack is usable both in private and commercial (sic!) projects!

Well, go get it!
