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