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.

    CSS-Tricks just posted a collection yesterday, Fico included. http://css-tricks.com/flat-icons-icon-fonts/

    The problem here is fonts being read by screen readers. Be careful when assessing how to use this technique.

    Sorry if this is what you meant anyway, but I think it’s gzipped and not gripped.

    @Matt Wilcox – Just be sure to include: aria-hidden=’true’ in the span tag around the icon. Readers will ignor it.

    Indeed, Justin – I was wondering if Mr. Jeffrey had discovered a new way to “handle” fonts!
