From The Makers Of Font Awesome, Fonticons (YC S15) Helps You Build A Beautiful Website

by Alexis Ohanian7/23/2015

Launching this week out of our current Summer 2015 class, Fonticons is a subscription service for web icons that helps website developers create the exact look they need, quickly and easily.

TechCrunch’s Fitz Tepper wrote about Fonticons in an article published today:

“If you’ve ever developed a website, you’re probably familiar with Font Awesome. The free service lets developers adorn their site with over 500 icons
using only a line of CSS, and is used on about 40 million websites
including the official website of the White House.

Now, Dave Gandy, the creator of Font Awesome, is launching Fonticons, a subscription service that will take Font Awesome’s original idea to the next level. …The service will offer the same features as Font Awesome, along with
some added benefits for its paid subscribers. These exclusive features
will be in the form of three subscription tiers ranging from free to $99
per year.”
