This site uses icons from Material Design.
Material design icons are connviniently packaged in an icon font and are simply used with the right word referencing the icon. The font contains a ligature for that specific word (as icon fonts do).
The "groove paper" subtle pattern is used on this site's design to give it a texture feel. It is great combined with the CSS mix-blend-mode to convey a tactile feel to the rendering and make it seem like everything is actually drawn on textured paper.
