Creating icons

You can search for icons via Flaticon and adapt them to the university’s house style. You can also design your own icons by using a programme such as Adobe Illustrator. When designing your icons, you should adhere to the following guidelines:

  • When it comes to the size and colour of your icon and your use of lines, be consistent.
  • Illustrate what you want to say or use a metaphor.
  • Avoid using clichés.
