The useful, the odd, the whimsical, the curious... EclecticOne is the veritable toolbox of fonts, filled with symbols you can use anytime - elements for borders; those EC (environmentally correct) recycled symbols (this font was the first to have them!); horizontal "diamond" arrows; and of course the mysterious toaster. (Is it burnt toast? Wheat toast?)
One reviewer suggests "for whatever you do, EclecticOne is an excellent dingbat source."
STF Eclectic One is a visual cornucopia of symbols, like the junk drawer in your kitchen. Stuff you'll need someday for a graphic element, bullet or dingbat application. Perfect for website icons!
The Eclectic family is legendary, with a cult-like following among the inititated. As one of the first dingbat fonts available on the web, it gain popularity after its design in the early 1990s. With over 150 characters in the complete set, you'll find yourself using Eclectic One almost daily to add spice to your otherwise san-serif typographic existence.
This font is essentially a soap opera of typographic image elements, created for projects when I couldn't find the “thingbat” I needed. Almost more of a collection of illustrations, there are many characters which connect to form patterns, and of course it’s like a “small neutral European country” army knife for the creative community.
EcOne features complete hour, quarter, and half-hour notations in an analog clock design glyph, recycled/recyclable symbols, a registration mark, a toaster, globes, sideways diamond arrows, spaceships, stoplights, the “running man,” several atomic references, da buzz saw, target icons, the unusual smiley face floating in a ball (with a drop shadow, no less!), and the fish skeleton which complements the fallout shelter symbol, and more. Make your own juxtapositions!
