Pictograms shortcodes

Flatfile comes with its very own pictogram typeface. Drawn by John Caserta and included with the theme (for use in the theme only), the typeface can be used to catch a viewer’s eye when you want to link to particular types of content: videos, Web sites, drawings, etc.

You’ll see the pictograms in wide use on the Flatfile site and on John’s Flatfile site.
