NFC21 supports development of NFC-Icons for Font Awesome 6
Published on 22.06.2021
NFC21 sponsored the development of NFC icons for Font Awesome 6 to visually support common NFC actions and assist both designers and end users.
Although NFC has been talked about for years, there has been a lack of visual support for common NFC-related interactions. NFC21 and Font Awesome have joined forces to fill this gap and introduce 9 NFC icons that cover common NFC actions.
Icon fonts are used in web, print and software to visually support content or actions. They are easily integrated and always sharp and recognizeable at any screen size. Font Awesome is the most famous representative due to its large selection and high quality of offered icons.
Shortly after the beginning of the development of the new Font Awesome 6, NFC21 took the opportunity to sponsor the design of NFC-related icons:
"We use Font Awesome in all our web and software solutions, but have always sorely missed icons for NFC. The opportunity to sponsor the design of NFC icons was one we couldn't pass."
Werner Gaulke, Technical Director at NFC21
“With over 13,800 icons, Font Awesome 6 is our biggest release to date. We’re thrilled with the contributions of supporters like NFC21, which enable us to add much-needed icons to cover even more practical use-cases.”
Jory Raphael, Lead Icon Designer at Font Awesome
Beta 1 of Font Awesome 6 is available now. An overview of the NFC icons can be found here:
