Our icon system is simple, clean, and open. Use standard icons to represent general technology concepts in marketing materials, presentations, web content, infographics, and diagrams. They’re intended to be used at small sizes, working best for sizes between 32 and 100 pixels. If you need a larger visual, use an illustration.
All icons use the same stroke weight and corner radii, show objects from the front when possible, use flattened perspective, and are made from geometric shapes. They're available in 3 colors—red, black and white—but they can be changed to any color in our brand palette.
Standard icons in use
Standard icons are a quick way to add visual interest and reinforce main points in presentations.
Standard icons can be used in diagrams or charts to quickly call out important components or operations.
On the web, use standard icons in cards or lists to add visual interest.
Standard icons work well as small visuals on swag like mugs or buttons.
Do not add elements to create a different shape or combine icons. Use an illustration for complex concepts.
Standard icons as patterns
Patterns are a way to use our icons to create visually interesting graphics quickly. Use patterns to aid recognizability for a program, team, or product. Carefully consider where you use a pattern to ensure that its placement makes sense. Remember that whitespace is a key element of our brand, so not every blank space needs to be filled.
Experiment with one icon by varying the size and fill.
Try picking a set of related icons and using them at the same size.
Try adding connecting lines to icons in a set. The lines should match the weight of the icons.
Experiment with color and scale, but always include Red Hat red to reinforce our brand.
Icon patterns in use
Icon patterns are a great way to customize a piece of swag for a team, product, or program while staying true to the Red Hat brand.
Icon patterns can be added to small spaces on documents or email headers to add visual interest without adding clutter.
