Line Awesome in a nutshell
Font Awesome is well, awesome, but our data shows that people actually like line icons even more1. Since Icons8 is all about making people happy, we made Line Awesome as a free alternative to Font Awesome 5.11.2.
Line Awesome consists of ~1380 flat line icons that offer complete coverage of the main Font Awesome icon set. This icon-font is based off of the Icons8 Windows 10 style, which consists of over 4,000 icons, so be sure to check that out if you need more specific icons.

There’s a trick, however. Line Awesome is pixel perfect , though it’s optimized for larger size. While Font Awesome is optimized for 14×14 px, Line Awesome looks great in 32×32 px.
If you use larger icons, you’re cool. If you use 14×14, first please check if it looks ok. Many icons do. Otherwise, try changing it to 16×16 with CSS. The majority of our line icons look cool this way. If not, please drop us a line in comments and tell us which icon you want us to fix. We’ll do that for you.
- *Most people, in fact: Icons8 statistics show that line icons are way more popular than filled icons.
