New 16px Grid System

  • New 16px base size (same as Bootstrap 4 base font size)
  • Every icon on new grid system for consistency throughout the set 
  • Better readability at smallest size
  • More consistent visual design
  • No font descender for easier vertical positioning


Brand New CSS

  • Easier stacking - Flexbox to the rescue!
  • More & re-designed animations
  • All CSS from scratch!

          

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Our T-shirts will be softest and snuggliest, made from the finest American Apparel model 2001 Fine Jersey Crew Crewneck Tees. You'll never want to take them off. But you probably should at some point. Just sayin'.
  • For our mugs, we're partnering with the revered Emalco. Their enamelware is made using a centuries-old process where powdered glass and pigment is fired at 1500°F and fused onto a steel substrate. This creates gorgeous and insanely durable mugs with a dash of unique character. Your $30 Font Awesome mug might just outlast us all. 
  • Final designs will be chosen by our backer community.

  

 

Funded!!! We’ll add our most-awesome Pro-only code features (but not the Pro icons) to Font Awesome Free! That means we’ll open source our super-awesome SVG Framework AND we’ll make all of our JavaScript component packages available as well! More sprinkles for everyone!

Funded! For React, Angular, Ember.js, and Vue.js, we’ll make framework-native JavaScript components installable through your favorite package manager (npm, yarn) for FA Pro. Free for all of our Pro backers!

Funded! All Pro backers get exclusive, permanent access to the Font Awesome Community, which we're building from scratch. We'll be including user forums, voting, and more! Help decide which icons go into Font Awesome 5 AND show off your site, discuss ideas, and get help with Font Awesome from the community!

Funded! We're expanding the Duotone icon set to 600 icons. That's basically the current size of all of Font Awesome Free!

AND everyone ordering T-shirts and mugs will get three styles to choose from (instead of just one) AND we'll also throw in limited-edition, exclusive Font Awesome 5 sticker sheets AND magnets!

Funded! Just like Font Awesome CDN, we'll make it easy to serve up Font Awesome Pro with our CDN. No files to mess with. AND you'll be able to load just the icon packs your site uses to keep your pages slim and speedy. We're giving all Pro backers a year of the service!

Funded! We'll make it easy to use Font Awesome Pro in your iOS or Android app. Free for all of our Pro backers. AND we'll open source iOS and Android support for Font Awesome Free as well!

Funded! Font Awesome already includes a solid and outlined style for nearly every icon. If we hit $400k, we'll add an additional style that's a lighter weight of our outlined icons. Free for all of our Pro Backers!

Funded! We'll include a desktop tool that allows you to create your own custom package of Font Awesome Pro! You'll easily be able to assemble just the icons you need to keep your site blazing fast! Free for all of our Pro backers!

Funded! We'll include basic SVG files for free in Font Awesome 5 Free! This won't include any of our SVG framework magic, but should make using Font Awesome Free easier on the desktop and for folks who love SVG!

Funded! We'll make it easy to use Font Awesome Pro in some of your favorite design tools, like Sketch, Illustrator, and Photoshop. Free for all of our Pro backers!

Funded! While creating Font Awesome 5, we'll be writing and blogging about our process. At the end, we'll assemble all the articles into an eBook and distribute for free to all of our Pro backers!

Funded! For the top 200 icons in Font Awesome, we'll create an exclusive duotone icon set for our Pro backers! Same Font Awesome ease of use, super-cool duotone effects!

46 Icon Packs Funded! For every icon category pack, we'll add 10 more icons to Font Awesome Free and another 30 more icons to Font Awesome Pro. These icon packs are available for free for all Pro backers, but will cost $10 each after the Kickstarter. Support now and save!

Risks and challenges

Font Awesome 5 will be the most time-intensive, complicated version of Font Awesome ever. There are considerable challenges to keeping our icons readable at small size and the framework super-easy to use.

But this is our fifth version of Font Awesome and our second Kickstarter project. We're confident we can deliver all products on time. And we're excited to get started.
