Icon fonts are quickly becoming a web design trend and there is a good reason for that. Instead of working with a load of files in different resolutions or large sprites to be controlled by CSS, we simply embed a special font. Creating icons with icon fonts gives designers the ability to manipulate the icons with CSS, and it can improve load times by up to 15%, and because they're vector in nature, they're infinitely scalable, while still being smaller in size than an image sprite.
But what if you need to use these icons in a desktop or mobile application? Or create a website favicon or multi-colored icon?
The only answer is old-fashioned image icons in png or ico format. Iconion allows you to convert any icon font into fantastic-looking png icons by adding color, shadow, background, gradient, stroke and many other fancy elements.
