Even if you don't immediately know the name, I'm willing to bet that at some point within the last year you'll have landed on a site which includes one or more icons from the Font Awesome kit.

This free open-source project provides upwards of 675 scalable handmade icons and has seen numerous updates all the way up to the current version of 4.7.

So what's new?

Well, version 5 is coming very soon and is planned to be a complete redesign and overhaul of the entire kit. Every icon will sit within a 16 pixel base grid allowing for consistency and legibility, even at the smallest of sizes.

The team behind this massive overhaul recently took to Kickstarter to find backing for the venture, and with 35,550 people donating has just generated over $1m, becoming the most funded software Kickstarterever.

The planned release date for the new kit has been pencilled in for May 2017 so watch out for these awesome icons hitting your screens soon.
