Glossary » dingbat


(graphic design) a small typographic element that can be placed among text, typically to draw attention to the text it marks (such as a bullet item). Many font families are available which consist solely of dingbats. Dingbats are typically decorative geometric shapes or occasionally small illustrations, e.g. stars, diamonds, arrows, or pointing fingers.
