How To Icons In Figma

Figma is a highly efficient tool for designers, providing the ability to effortlessly create striking visual designs and prototypes. One of its numerous capabilities is the incorporation of icons into your designs. In this blog post, we will guide you through the process of utilizing icons in Figma.

1. Accessing Icons

To start with, you need to have access to icons. Figma doesn’t come with built-in icons, but there are several resources where you can get these.
You can use free libraries like Feather icons, FontAwesome, or Material Design icons.

2. Importing Icons

Once you have your icons, the next step is to import them into Figma. Here’s how to do it:

    Step 1: Download your icon set and unzip the file if necessary.
    Step 2: In Figma, go to the 'Assets' tab.
    Step 3: Click on the '+' button and then select 'Import'.
    Step 4: Navigate to where you saved your icon set and select it.
    Step 5: Click 'Open' and your icons will be imported into Figma.

Once imported, your icons will be available for use in your designs.

3. Using Icons

To use an icon in your design, simply drag and drop it from the assets panel to your desired location on the canvas.
If you want to make changes to the icon, you can ungroup the icon components by going to the top menu and selecting Object > Ungroup.

4. Customizing Icons

One of the benefits of Figma is that icons can be fully customized. You can change the color of an icon, its size, and even its shape.
To customize an icon, select it and then use the property inspector on the right side of the screen. From here, you can adjust the Fill color, Stroke color and thickness, and much more.

Incorporating icons into your design can significantly enhance its visual appeal and functionality. Figma makes it easy to both import and customize these icons, so don’t hesitate to start implementing them into your designs. Happy designing!
