Do you ever need an icon or symbol to help you emphasise a point in your documents or slides? Of course, you do! ✅
Every Friday I share one of my favourite finds of the week — a website, tool or an app that has impressed me.
My Friday Favourite this week is The Noun Project – Free Icons and Symbols.
What is it?
The Noun Project is a collection of over 2 Million curated icons and symbols, created by a global community.
How much does it cost?
The Noun Project offers graphics that are free to use, as long as you attribute the creators.
A premium NounPro membership costs $39.99 annually and allows you to use unlimited royalty-free (no attribution required) icons and symbols.
Free Icons and Symbols for Everything
As Dr Simon Raybould told us when I interviewed him about being a presentation genius, if you’ve ever done any public speaking, then you’ll know that using imagery is a better way to demonstrate your points than using text.
Likewise, graphics can enhance text documents and any educational process by drawing attention and demonstrating ideas.
The Noun Project is a collection of icons and symbols that you can use to simplify communication.
If you need a graphic, simply search for one and you’ll be surprised at the volume of options that you have available to you.
For instance, when I did a search for “Cyber Security”, I was presented with over 465 to choose from.
New images are created every day by creators, and the existing collection is very impressive.
