Colours, fonts and icons

In any great product development there are always there essential elements.

  1. Colours

  2. Fonts

  3. Icons

Since the inception of Font Awesome in 2012 I have often turned to FontAwesome to find icons that are likely candidates for my software projects.

Font Awesome has delivered a user-friendly approach to discovering and retrieving icons to be used, not only that they also provide several delivery integrations for Front-End Development.

A few fun facts:

  1. They were Github's most popular new open source project in 2012 and are currently in the top 10 projects overall.

  2. Font Awesome is on more than 73 million websites. And according tot he founder, about 1 in every 3 new website uses Font Awesome.

  3. And last but not least, by raising $1,076,960, Font Awesome became the highest funded software project on Kickstarter and in the top 3 of Open source projects.

So if you're planning your next digital project, make sure to consider what strategy will help you to achieve success and although the smallest details might seem insignificant at times, these are the time savers!

When your engineers and developers could be launching new feats, they often find themselves combating the three essentials: Colours, fonts and icons.


Because they become so prevalent in your software, one change which seems easy at the start, usually becomes several changes later.

There's an old saying, "Measure Twice Cut Once".

If you get it right from the beginning then everything else is just a minor detail.
