Now, before I start, not everyone is going to think these are all useful, so if you don’t ever use tree silhouettes, fine. But some of us do. Personally, I love dingbats because (most of the time) I convert them to vectors in Illustrator and use them as very large elements in some cases. All you have to do is use the font in Illustrator and then go to Type > Create Outlines, and Bam. You got yourself a vector to work with. Here are some dingbat fonts that I thought you might enjoy.

Hurry! Help Send David Bracetty to FOWA

Nick La, over at WebDesignerWall recently contacted me with a cool story. A college student by the name of David Bracetty is selling ad spaces on a t-shirt in order to raise funds to go to FOWA (Future of Web Apps) in Miami, Florida. He will be wearing the t-shirt both days in an effort to pay for his trip. I recently purchased a couple spaces for BittBox, but time is running thin. His funds need to be raised by Feb 20th in order to get the shirt printed in time, so I decided to post about to try and help him out. If you have a website, and you can spare a cool $20, please visit David’s Website. I hope we can get you to FOWA David!!! (I remember how broke I was in college, and this is a great cause)
