Fico by Lensco.be | an icon font for responsive web designs, Retina display

FICO, by Lensco.be, is a font with 52 simple, commonly used icons and glyphs, served on the web via @font-face. Small (under 12K when gripped, in one HTTP request) and color-agnostic (you can even use gradients and shadows), it is perfect for responsive designs with media queries, and for creating a rich visual feel without the bandwidth and production overhead of JPG images in a Retina world.
