Join Brian Wood for an in-depth discussion in this video Add animation to an icon font, part of Making Your Site Retina-Ready.
- I really love animation…and not just crazy, complex animation…but even simple, subtle animation…that kind of melts into the background…of a page and adds a level of interest.…Icon fonts can have animation.…How much is up to you and your tastes…and there's only so much we can do with an icon…font but I want to give you a tease in this video…into how to accomplish animation.…We're gonna make it so that the social media…icons that we are about to add to our page…will actually flip when we hover over them.…
So, with your page open,…go ahead and scroll all the way down…and you should see that we have…insert social media icon fonts here.…Go out to the Font Awesome website…and let's go to our icons and what we're gonna do,…is we're gonna kind of search here.…They have a bunch of social media.…Let me see if I can search on social media.…Here we go.…Search on social and what we'll do is…we'll put in like the Twitter square,…the Facebook square, et cetera.…So, we can actually use Twitter square.…I'm gonna just come in, click that one…
