This guideline shows our full suite of BBC icons and explains how to use them. They’re designed to create a consistent look across all our digital platforms.
Our icons can be used to illustrate action, status and identity.
We have 19 icon sets, with over 400 icons in total. These range from action icons like the 'download' icon, to device icons like 'smart speaker', to service-specific icons for Sport.
Sizing and Spacing
Our icons have been designed at 24px and can be resized accordingly in your designs. 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, use spacing in multiples of 4 or 8 pixels.
Icons should always appear to the left of their respective labels.
