Our designers create icons to match your brand
Custom icons tell your story like no generic stock icons can. You are individual and so is your company, be unique.
It is tempting to try and shoe-horn in cheap stock icons. The problem is they are a compromise, both of your message and of your brand. Stock icons are cheap because designers draw them to appeal to the most people, so they can sell more. Dozens? Hundreds? – of other companies may be using the same stock icons you are considering. Even if they ‘sort-of’ do the job, they will never look right. Custom icon design will show your clients how you stand out from the crowd, not blend in with it.
Getting a designer to custom design icon illustrations for you will cost more. But they are still great value when you consider what they deliver:
- Precise communication, even of complex ideas
- Visual enhancement and improved engagement
- Strengthen your brand and individuality
From flat icons to 3d icons, we have so many custom icon styles to choose from, check out our icon portfolio for more.
Custom icons for everything
We know icons inside-outWhen you have worked in icon design as long as we have you become familiar with many icon platforms. When designing custom app icons there are the obvious ones like iOS custom icons, Android or Windows Phone. Then you have your major desktop operating systems like Windows, MacOS and Unix. Beyond that there are more niche platforms such as Windows Mobile and XAML. And of course, we cannot forget the web which covers so many delivery methods. SVG, PNG, JPG, ICO, Icon Fonts, the list goes on. Custom Android icons are particularly exciting right now thanks to the new Adaptive icons. Android 8 allows the use of layers and masking to make dynamic icons that can even include simple animations, which is great fun to design for. SVG icons are always very popular and we prefer scalable vector graphics files to any other format. The main reasons vector icons work so well are:
- Scaling – vector icons scale much better than any other format
- File size – vector icons are much smaller than bitmaps
- Control – You can embed SVG icons in your HTML and even control them via CSS.

Web icon illustrations
If your website uses stock photography, you might want to consider how custom web icons can help. You only have a few seconds to get your message across, why not say it with a custom illustration? Web icons work with your headings to communicate your message fast. You can use them as calls to action or to attract visitors to certain areas of the page. The nice thing is, being custom designed, they match your branding too.

All app platforms have their own style guide and there is something nice about fitting in. But some clients prefer to stand out from the norm and that is fine too.

One client reported positive feedback for their new icon suite. Their customers even raved about the new features they had added. In reality, they had found existing features they hadn’t noticed behind stock icons. The small investment in custom icons had a huge impact on the value of their software. This added value helped increase sales and keep existing clients.
Another customer told how they spent hundreds of thousands developing new features. They came to us at the last minute to add new bespoke icons. All the feedback they received was raving about the new look and the icons. Very few users were as excited about the new features but felt they had a new product. The tiny relative cost of the icons produced far more perceived value than the new features. Many of our clients have transformed the sales of their software with a simple icon face-lift. At the end of the day, people are simple creatures, they like things that look great. If you let us improve the look of your software, you will sell more.
