UI Fonts

Designers can now type icons and they'll appear.

This is from the CreativeDash team; I saw a pre-release demo and was blown away by the simplicity and ingenuity. I basically no longer have to hunt for icons as a designer; I just fire up the font and type the icon I want. With the power of ligatures, the icon appears. Amazing.
(All of this in Sketch or Photoshop, btw).
So slick. I kind of want a mobile app that can replace my words entirely w/ emojis like this.
@rrhoover now that's something...you could probably hack it with keyboard shortcuts for now ;)
Nice tool! I'm a beginner designer. So such things as fonts, icons, layout and colours are my special concern. I've heard that TemplateMonster releases handcrafted font bundle soon ( https://www.templatemonster.com/... ). Can't wait to give them a try!
