Iconography

Design
Code

Graphically represent an object or action.

Add or edit icons while keeping a consistent set coherent across platforms.

Style

Our iconography style relies on our personality traits: smart and reliable.

This icon style can be described as “approachable”. Hard shapes are softened for personality but never gratuitously rounded or bubbly to feel overly playful. Put another way: sports are fun, but we know athletes and coaches take their sport seriously.

Metaphor

Supporting our predictable design principle, we strive to use industry standard metaphors.

For unique features where an industry standard has not yet been established, clarity is the guiding principle.

Color

Our standard icons are glyphs and should be filled with a single solid color, presented without shadows.

Style

It’s always best to prefer clarity over cleverness and style.
