What is an Icon?

An icon is a small image representing an object, concept, or action. Icons are often used in user interfaces to visually represent a function or command. In many cases, you can use icons to represent common tasks or commands without text labels.

More About Icons

Icons can be simple images, such as a basic geometric shape, or more complex designs that attempt to convey meaning through symbolism. In some cases, icons may even include animation to communicate their purposes further.

Icons are often associated with Graphical User Interfaces (GUI), such as those found on computers and mobile devices. However, they can also be used in other contexts, like street signs or road markings.

In general, an icon may be a suitable solution whenever a visual representation would help convey meaning or perform a task.

For example, the “trash” icon is universally recognized as a symbol for deleting an item.
