Material icons

PROFI comes with Font Awesome and Material Icons icon sets and an Icon component to easily control their colouring and sizing.

Material icons are delightful, beautifully crafted symbols for common actions and items. Download on desktop to use them in your digital products for Android, iOS, and web.

How to use

Material design system icons are simple, modern, friendly, and sometimes quirky. Each icon is created using Google’s design guidelines to depict in simple and minimal forms the universal concepts used commonly throughout a UI. Ensuring readability and clarity at both large and small sizes, these icons have been optimized for beautiful display on all common platforms and display resolutions.

It’s easy to incorporate icons into your web page. Here’s a small example:

<i class="material-icons">face</i>

This example uses a typographic feature called ligatures, which allows rendering of an icon glyph simply by using its textual name. The replacement is done automatically by the web browser and provides more readable code than the equivalent numeric character reference.

Styling icons

These icons were designed to follow the material design guidelines and they look best when using the recommended icon sizes and colors. The styles below make it easy to apply our recommended sizes, colors, and activity states.
