Icons are powerful visual tools for communicating ideas quickly and effectively in design. But when it comes to using them in Figma, the process can be confusing. If you’ve ever wondered how to get icons on Figma, this article is here to help!
Getting icons on Figma is easy when you know where to look. The first step is to find an icon library that you like.
There are lots of great ones out there, both free and paid, so take your time and find one that has a style that works for you. Some popular libraries include Iconfinder, Flaticon, and Font Awesome.
Once you’ve chosen a library, it’s time to start downloading the icons you need for your project. Each library will have different steps for downloading icons – usually just a few clicks away – so make sure to check their instructions before starting.
When the icons are downloaded, they will be in SVG format. To add them to your Figma project, open up the file and select ‘Import’ from the main menu at the top of your screen. This will open up a window where you can select the SVG file that contains your icon.
Once imported into Figma, the icon will appear as an editable vector graphic that can be moved, resized and recolored as needed. You can even change its color with Figma’s intuitive color picker tool.
