Rules for using icons
Only use icons when there’s a clear need for them. And be sure to use them with the correct text label.
Only use icons as intended, as shown above. This will help to make them more understandable over time.
The icons have been designed at 13px and 32px in light and dark colours. And they can also be sized in relation to our typography guidelines.
Spacing and positioning
Always give the right amount of space around the icon to allow for legibility and touch. Wherever possible, size your spacing in multiples of 4 or 8 pixels.
Icons should appear to the left of their respective labels.
