Do's and don'ts

 Do use an icon that helps communicate the content visually.

An example of a thumbnail grid component with a photo of the inside of the Green library with a book icon.

 Don’t use an icon that does not help communicate the content visually.

An example of a thumbnail grid component with a photo of the peer advisors and a medical icon.

 Don’t set the icon size to small making it hard to read.

An example of a call to action with a hyperlink and a very small icon.

 Don't use a color that fails the color contrast check.

An example of two hyperlinks with icons but in an orange color that fails the color contrast checker.
