Iconion: New Tool Converts Icon Fonts To Icon Files

Icon fonts are the new craze lately. The advantages are clear.

Iconion is a new free tool, that converts pictograms from icon fonts into files. You can even edit them…

A lot has been said about importance and possibilities of typography. Whether you are using it in a website design or a graphic design, it has always something to contribute.

Pump up da Project: 5 Must-Have JavaScripts (February 2014 Edition)

Have you already heard of “You might not need jQuery”? That site created ripples soon after its release a few weeks ago. It suggests that you might be better off targeting modern browser features directly, instead of relying on jQuery to achieve basically the same.
