Celebrating Over 3 Million Icons!

Over three million curated icons, created by a global community.

Since Noun Project was founded in 2011, we’ve been on a mission to create, share and celebrate the world’s visual language. Inspired by co-founder Edward Boatman’s sketches, Noun Project’s original collection featured just 513 icons. Since then, our platform has become the world’s best-known resource for visual communication — a place where anyone can find the icon they need to communicate any idea quickly and easily.

As a leader in visual communication, we believe that visual language has the power to shape, reinforce and change perceptions. Through initiatives like Iconathons, community design workshops and the Redefining Women icon collection, we’re championing more equal and accurate representation in visual language and working hard to always ensure the most diverse and unique content can be found on our platform.

From the very beginning, Noun Project has been committed to focusing on quality over quantity. Each icon found on Noun Project has made it through our rigorous content moderation process, ensuring that every icon in our collection adheres to strict quality standards. As we’ve grown, we’ve become even more discerning about the material that makes it into our collection, which makes this milestone even more special.

This week we’re thrilled to be celebrating more than three million curated icons, created by a global community 🎉 Thank you to the thousands of Creators from over 120 countries that have reached this milestone with us!
