Most of the time Dingbats are not taken seriously as a resource for design elements. However, there are a select few that standout in quality and style, and can actually be very useful. Their versatility and simplicity offers an universally easy to understand language that can be seen in anything from road signs and posters, to icons and logos, and can be found everywhere from the North to the South Pole. Yep, Pictograms are awesome.
The collection before can be easily converted to vector elements and be used in your designs, saving you time and money.
Quick Tip: to convert the dingbat into a fully functional vector:
- Type the dingbat font in Adobe Illustrator
- Go to Type > Create Outlines
- Now you have a vector that can be used as a logo, icon, symbol, or whatever you please.
