Wingdings Font

About windings font

The Wingdings font has a great cultural influence. It is a symbolic font published by Microsoft. The real inspiration for this font is rooted back in the 70s. Back then, it was designed by the famous calligrapher Hermann Zapf

He inspired Charles Bigelow and Kris Holmes (1990) to make their own digital dingbat fonts, such as Lucida Icons and the Lucida Arrow and Star fonts. The purpose of the Wingding font was to solve the difficulty of using internet images. 

However, images were hard to find, huge to download, and clashed with text. Charles Bigelow and Kris Holmes created Wingdings to instantly and easily use images that matched text.

In 1992, Microsoft obtained the right to use these fonts and merged them into one pack. Eventually, the Windows beta used it. 

The name Winding came from the combination of dingbats and windows.
