GOV.UK elements Icons and images
Avoid unnecessary decoration - only use icons and images if there’s a real user need.
- if icons are needed ensure they are clear, simple and accompanied by relevant text
- don’t hide functionality under icons
GOV.UK standard icons are provided, as well as organisation crests and media player icons – find these in the GOV.UK frontend toolkit images folder.
Use bold text with an exclamation icon if there are legal consequences - for example, a fine or prison sentence.
<div class="notice"> <i class="icon icon-important"> <span class="visually-hidden">Warning</span> </i> <strong class="bold-small"> You can be fined up to £5,000 if you don’t register. </strong> </div>
If images are needed they should be landscape, 3:2 aspect ratio.
