Principles of Design

Noun Project visual standards

Your icons should be well-crafted. Our curation team looks over your icons as if they were under a microscope, so remember to take the time to thoroughly look over them to make sure they follow our principles of design.
  • 1. Consistent Style

    Stick to one design style. Whether that is line, fill, or hand-drawn is up to you.

  • 2. Properly Aligned

    Shapes in your icons' designs should be aligned correctly within it.

  • 3. Clean Shapes

    Your icons should be clean and have no excess vector points, unless done in a hand drawn style.

  • 4. Contain with a Purpose

    If you are using shapes to contain your icons, make sure the inside is transparent. Does not apply to colored icons.
