System icons enhance interfaces by adding visual communication to actions, status and feedback while reducing cognitive load. They are to provide meaning at a glance.
The EDS system icons are built on a copy of the outlined GMD icons provided open-source by Google. The icons have been customised and renamed for Equinor’s use.
Simple and clear icons require a strict underlying grid. The EDS icons are built on a 24x24px grid. System icons can be used in 16px and 24px sizes.
- System icons are not to be used as product icons or as a favicon.
There are over 600 icons available divided in logical categories to make them easy to find.
