Small, yet legible

The icons are extremely small — with the actual marks varying between 8×8 to 12×12 pixels. Due to being pixel icons, the marks stay legible even at the small sizes — allowing for low-profile aesthetics.

3 different sizes

As well as coming in many colors, the icons also come in 16×16, 32×32 & 64×64 pixels. The 32×32 and 64×64 icons have a chunkier look, maintaing the pixel style.

All icons come in a wide variety of colors (10 in all) in order for greater convenience. The colors hit all the major hues in the spectrum as well as many colors used in the scheme on this site.
