Icons can be useful not only for logo inspiration, but also a great way to break up monotony on your website. Sometimes text can be overwhelming, and you can represent your services or methodology with an icon instead. Check out:

  • Icons8: Download icons for free, with folders to keep a uniform style for all
  • The Noun Project: Extensively search through icons to represent any word you can think of. Free downloads for PNGs
  • Font Awesome: With the most in depth design, this is great if you are willing to spend a monthly cost 

Once you put all of these pieces together, you’ll have a foundation for your brand that will have new and repeat customers talking about your business.
