The FontAwesome 4.2.0 contains a glyph for StackExchange icon.

Is there any possibility to be created an icon for TeX.SE so we could use it with LuaLaTeX?

    What would that look like?

  • @Werner, maybe that pretty pair of curly braces (empty of with \TeX inside it). The braces has some special colour effect.

    None of the FontAwesome icons have shading in it; it's blank-and-white. As such, reproducing the TeX - LaTeX logo would be as simple as \{\TeX\} which you can scale to your hearts content using \resizebox or \scalebox from graphicx.

  • @Werner, thanks for commenting. But do you know the font used here on TeX.SE to draw that logo? Also, it could be nice to have a negative version of the braces, I mean, a black box with white braces.

  • Is this a Meta question?

  • @ChristianHupfer It is about the site I think, so it can sit here. It would be, however, fine on the main site as well, probably ;)

  • @yo': It's alright, I was unsure.

  • I don't think the {feature-request} tag is appropriate here; that tag is meant for feature requests for the site design/functionality. What you're talking about here is a completely separate "product" if you will. Jan 15 '15 at 1:09
  • @PaulGessler, thanks. I asked here because I thought some user could draw the icon and insert it into the font. I don't know if this is possible.

    @Sigur only possible with some local copy of the font. All requests for official inclusion in the font should go through the font creator's GitHub Repository; the issue tracker has a "new icon" label for this purpose. Jan 15 '15 at 1:35
