Our Duotone icons, while extra stylish, need a little extra care when working on the Desktop.
Our duotone style provides an alternate version of each Font Awesome icon, but with two distinct shades of color. They're great for adding brand colors or a more illustrative quality to the icons in your project.
We’ll cover the basics about what to consider when using duotone icons.
