In this course you'll get to see excellent tips and tricks to produce results fast! You'll learn all there is to know on using icon fonts to make stunning graphics in Adobe Illustrator.
This is a great process to be familiar with because it helps you produce tangible designs when you are pressed for time, or when you just want to produce a proof of concept, fast.
So join the course and let me show you how I use icon fonts to be a faster designer.

In this lesson I will show you a quick design that I made in a very short time.

In this bonus lecture we will see how easy it is to add icon fonts to a boostrap layout using html and pre-defined css classes. Here, we will use bootstrap's own glyphicons, but the same principle can be applied to any icon font.
