Tired of plain-looking text for some links on your website? Well there’s actually an answer for that—Icons! Come to think of it, Windows did not become infamous because of the word itself. It is globally recognized as the icon with red, green, blue and yellow boxes outlined with black to resemble a window pane. Another perfect example is the bitten apple for Apple itself which is also helpful to label Mac systems, manufactured by the formidable Apple.

Comparable to the real world, icons work as logos. Like for instance, the two golden arches forming an M for McDonalds has been its trademark for decades already. Icons and logos represent a certain business or a certain concept so that it becomes recognizable and memorable for the majority.

For your websites, icons are a good tool to add some twist on your web pages, masking your need for wider spaces. Remember that too much text may cramp up your web pages, and so it will look disorganized. In this case, let us give you some links to downloadable icons that are artfully designed to suit your needs.
