Remember to source your icons
A great way to accentuate written content is through the use of graphic icons. According to the Nielsen Group, “Icons are, by definition, a visual representation of an object, action, or idea.” Furthermore, the usability giant notes that icons must, first and foremost, communicate meaning. (The Nielsen Group) This conceptual style of design is hard to master and it may be tempting to right click and save an icon image that perfectly fits your concept, however, icons fall under copyright law in the same way that photos do. Not only that, but a person took the time to design that icon and deserves credit and/or reimbursement for its use. Luckily, image-licensing services as mentioned above offer a diverse array of icons for purchase. There are even icon databases online that allow free use as long as you attribute the work to the original designer. Check out The Noun Project to learn more.
