Iconography

Paragon does not have a custom set of icons. Instead, we gather the best free and open source icons that suit our purposes and form a cohesive visual look and feel. Today, we primarily use the sharp style of Google Material system icons and are leaving Font Awesome icons behind.

To add an icon…

  1. First search Google Material icons for an appropriate icon to add.

  2. Name it (the name does not need to match Google’s) and add it to the Paragon Figma. See this frame for detailed design instructions.

  3. Add a ticket to the Paragon Jira Board entitled “Implement Icon …” and send the ticket to the appropriate engineering squad.
