Beyond the Basics: Custom Icon Design
By Jenna Erickson, Codal Inc
Icons are a small, but powerful feature to any website that can give users a
lasting impression of a brand. While custom icons should blend and match
with the rest of your branding and website design, they should stand out
enough to get the user’s attention. Any company that offers user experience
design services will probably recommend using custom iconography.
Although there are many websites that offer free icons to download, such as
Flat Icon, Free Pik, and Icons8, using custom icons is a solid way to ramp up
your brand. If you let your UX design company design custom icons for you,
they will be available to use on the following:
● Website and Mobile App
● Blog Posts
● Print Material
● Company Swag
● Tradeshow Backdrops + Material
● Product Packaging
● Social Media Visuals
The list of places that you can use icons for can go on and on. If your business
has a mobile application and a website, than pass the new custom assets along
to your mobile app development agency and have them implement them into
People simply appreciate originality. All of the icons in the libraries of the
above websites I mentioned, probably have the same ongoing list of icons, that
tons of UX companies are using. You wouldn’t want to be the company that
blends in with the rest of them, would you? I didn’t think so.
Be Clear and Usable
By using custom icons on your web pages and apps, chances are that the icons
will be much more clear on what the message is trying to convey. For example,
Codal is a mobile application development agency, offering iOS development
services in the Swift language, instead of just using an iPhone to show off that
we are iOS app developers, Codal could create a custom icon, incorporating
Codal branding, along with elements that would show that that that we
specialize in Swift.
How to Get Started?
Start planning and select a style
The first step to creating custom icons is to start thinking about the style, look
and feel you want to go for. There are so many different routes of styles you
could go, and you would want to make sure it aligns with the rest of your
brand (fun versus corporate).
