Utilize our expansive system of marketing-focused iconography to better communicate ideas and context as part of GitHub's overall visual language.



Preview of GitHub marketing icons

We use a system of marketing-focused icons as an extension of GitHub’s visual language. Unlike Octicons, which typically communicate available actions, these icons are intended to communicate ideas and context.

These icons should be used wisely and shouldn’t over-saturate the content. Icons are useful for parsing a lot of information, and when used appropriately, they help support content and add hierarchy to a layout.

Common use cases include navigation, features, announcements, and supporting text.
