Everyone online seems to be a little bit obsessed with font icons

The old fashioned technique to create icons was simply to crop images to work as icons and provide the same image quality for all sizes.

Step 1

First, head on over to the Erana Icons page and download the latest version of the icon set.

Step 2

In the file you download, unzip it and install the fonts on your computer.

Step 4

Paste it into your design application using it’s Text tool. For an example, I’ve highlighted and copied the “ea-pencil” icon, then I pasted it into Photoshop. CTRL+C / CTRL-V.

You will wind up with a block X like in the picture below.
