How Do I Add Icons to My Figma?

Adding icons to Figma is a great way to make your design more visually appealing. Icons can be used to draw attention to important information, create visual interest, and even provide context. There are a few different ways you can add icons to your Figma designs and we’ll cover them here.

Importing Icons from External Sources
The easiest way to add icons is by importing them from external sources like The Noun Project or Flaticon. Both of these sites offer thousands of free-to-use icons in a variety of styles and sizes.

To import an icon, simply search for the icon you need, select it, and then click the download button. You can then upload the icon into your Figma file.

Finding Icons in the Interface
Figma also offers its own library of icons which can be found by clicking on “Library” in the left sidebar. Here you will find hundreds of ready-to-use icons that can be placed directly onto your canvas with a single click.

Creating Custom Icons
If you’re looking for something unique or specific, you may need to create your own custom icon. This can be done using vector tools such as Adobe Illustrator or Sketch. Once created, you can import the icon into Figma by dragging it into the file browser window.

Styling Icons

No matter where your icons come from, they will all need to be styled before being placed on the canvas.

This includes setting their color, size and rotation angle as well as adding effects such as shadows or outlines. All of these settings can be adjusted in the right sidebar after selecting the desired icon.

Adding icons to Figma is an easy process with plenty of options available for finding or creating custom graphics for use in designs. With just a few clicks of a mouse, you’ll have professional looking graphics added to your designs in no time!
