Yes, there’s always an easier way.
I bet there are a few symbols in your graphic library, which you use very often. Tribals, flags, figures, birds, pictos, etc… What about if you don’t have to import them every time, but instead – they are one key press away ? The following logo dingbat font collection will make this happen.
visit Iconian.com to download all these and many more logo fonts / dingbats. Have in mind that the quality of the vectorized images is not perfect, but just decent and useful.
