A project for Xtremepush started in 2018
This icon font has been lots of fun to make.
Being Xtremepush in a very specific (and sometimes niche) market, a standard icon font that, one that can be bought online was not enough to cover the specific needs of the company.
Set aside standard icons like menu hamburger, search magnifier, download, etc… the real problem was to find icons that were representing the unique products of the company.
For this reason, we found necessary to have a custom font that could be used on both the website and the SaaS dashboard (main product).
Every font has a unique charm and that impacts and also help to define the image of whom is using it.
The choice was then a not-too-thin, line-icon style as the company wanted to look technical, modern, serious, and ‘sharp’.
The most influencing reference taken for this icons has been the Windows 10 icons pack.
The icons were built on 32px base, with 2px line thickness.
