AussieIcons - a Free TTF PC Dingbat Font by WebDog

AussieIcons.ttf is a dingbats font featuring silhouettes of animals including insects, amphibians, lizards, seals, and marsupials from Australia. It only comes with the lowercase character set loaded. So it lacks uppercase, numbers and puncuation, but it's free and you could always add in whatever you want in a good font editor such as Fontographer.

This font doesn't require a great display size in order to see the silhouettes well, but a larger size may be preferable. You may need a character keymap program in order to find just the animal/character you are looking for. Windows has a Character Map program (Search in Start for Character Map and click on that in the rrsults) and there are others available free, as well. I like BabelMap (and it's also free).

This font was created in 2000 by WebDog and released as a free font. It is OK to use for any kind of project, and commercial use is fine. You may redistribute this font as you wish. It also appears that it is fine to make derivatives of this font (modify it) and redistribute them, as WebDog had released this (and other fonts) as a free font with no actual license or readme text file to accompany it.

WebDog is reported to be Greg Smith from Australia. Some shops list the brand as Web Dog, but every read me text file that I ever saw included (only in a couple of fonts) referred to the brand as WEBDOG, the 2 words pushed together and all caps.

The WebDog URL still works, although now it is pointing to a different design studio brand with no mention of WebDog or the around 20 freew fonts released by WebDog.

This particular font archive was downloaded from the Font-Journal and the home page for this font is:

Font-Journal is a cataloged archive of freeware and shareware fonts that I maintain especially for my small business clients. I try to collect PC truetype freeware fonts that can be used for commercial purposes, and shareware fonts that can be used for commercial purposes upon registration and/or payment of the shareware fee. I also try to collect freely distributable web fonts of the same variety. The end result is a pretty decent font repository that is freelancer, start-up, and small business freindly. This assists in creating logos and designing website styles based on a choice of preferred fonts. Unfortunately, I can only work on Font-Journal in my spare time, which I have little of. Short Link:

If you would like to get yourself a decent font editor and add to or otherwise modify this font, I recommend Fontographer, although TypeTool can also do the job.

My portfolio usually needs to be updated, as I always have a ton of projects going and I even like to design my own fonts to offer exclusively through my font respository at Font-Journal. But it is another good way to contact me. Short Link:

I started out as an motorcycle racer and mechanic, hoping to get to Formula 1. That didn't work out and I never got to get in any race car as I had planned. I wound-up as an illustrator, animator, doing some programming and tech support. Plus, I have always been amatuer photographer and videographer. I was designing logos, posters and graphics in college with Illustrator and Photoshop, and wound-up making a website portfolio just afterwards. A few people liked it and I wound-up as a freelance web design studio. Then I expanded into web hosting, then domain name registrations and servers, offering a complete set of webmaster tools as Domain Hostmaster. I then added the Domainance store in an effort to keep .name registrations and transfers available when our vendor dropped it. Short Link: Short Link:

Now-a-days, I am just trying to corner a peice of the domain name registration and website hosting space, as I sell for less than most and offer more with better technical support. Professional domainers, designers, developers, optimizers and webmasters do like how I keep prices as low as possible and add my expertise and value where I can.

If you are interested in my designing a 'mobile-first' responsive website for you that will look good on all platforms (Windows, MacOSX, Linux, iOS, Android, etc.), in all major browsers (Chrome, FireFox, Edge, Safari, Opera, Dolphin, Puffin, Maxthon, Konquerer) and devices (from smart phones to tablets to computers), I still do that at Salamader Design...
