Standard Icons

Document Type: Standard


Content:

HHS must use standard icons and logos where applicable. An icon library has been established, along with guidance on HHS-specific images. HHS will refer to the HHS.gov Icon and Widget Library for approved images for items such as multimedia files and HHS logos.


Reason:

As part of the “One HHS: One Web site” concept, it is important that standard icons be used so that users have a common experience as they move across HHS web content.

The use of standard icons saves time for developers since icons have already been defined and developed.


Requirements:

Be familiar with the library of standard icons. Information on their appropriate usage is available on the individual standards pages.
