Tips – Icons and pictograms for the occasion
Summer is here, and this means time for sports! The European Soccer Championships and baseball are in full
swing, and the Olympics in Beijing are coming up in a few weeks. Allow us to present Tips™
, a collection of dingbat fonts that includes many great sport icons. Whether you are promoting your kid’s team, hosting a sports-themed party, or organizing a trip to a professional game, Tips Active probably has an icon for your activity. This font’s 67 glyphs include everything from basketball and golf to bowling and kayaking.
But Tips doesn’t stop at just sports icons. Although they were inspired by the graphics from the 1972 Olympics in Munich, there is more to this family. Tips is a German acronym for Type-Image-Pictogram-Font (Type-Image-Piktogramm-Schrift in German). With six fonts in total, the remaining five are themed for astrology, business communications, travel, numbers, and wayfinding. There are images for escalators, restrooms, copy machines, poison, medical help … you name it – it’s probably in there.
