Monoline versus filled

IconUse case
MonolineMonoline icons are the default style, and can be used in most cases to visually enhance meaning regarding user interaction or messaging.
FilledFilled icons should only be used to convey an “on” or “pressed” state of their monoline icon counterparts, where the monoline version shows the default appearance or rest state. Filled icons are not intended for use without interactions that toggle a binary choice, such as on and off or saved and unsaved.
Half-filledHalf-filled icons, such as star or heart icons, are intended for use with ratings.

SVG versus icon font

The Dell Design System offers two formats for icons: icon fonts and SVGs. Choose the one that best suits your purpose.

FormatUse case
SVGSVGs or Scalable Vector Graphics, are vector-based graphics in XML format. SVG icons are scalable to any size without affecting image quality and have better anti-aliasing than icon fonts. This type of icon can be magnified and printed in high quality at any size, and every attribute can be animated. Since SVG icons are simply a block of code that loads inline with page content, they can load faster and cleaner. However, inline SVGs cannot be cached by the browser, leading to longer load times for pages with many icons. They also do not have the same cross-browser support as icon fonts. However, Dell uses a sprite builder to help decrease load times. SVG icons also have accessibility advantages over icon fonts, since they are treated as images and come with built-in semantic elements like < title > and < desc > that work with screen readers and text-based browsers. They are also compatible with WAI-ARIA specifications. Choose SVG icons if you are using a large number of multicolored icons with animations.
Icon fontIcon fonts are actual fonts that consist of symbols and glyphs instead of numbers and letters. Icon fonts are able to scale to any resolution without loss of image quality and usually have slightly smaller file sizes than SVG icons. However, like regular fonts, icon fonts are subject to browser font rendering algorithms, sometimes resulting in blurry or pixelated icons when size increases. Icon fonts can be cached by web browsers, making them ideal for pages using a few icons without animations or multicolor modifications, but on pages with complex formatting, icon fonts may flash as font libraries are loading. Choose font icons if you need a few icons without any multicolor modifications or animations.

SEO guidelines

Use SVG icons whenever possible.
SVG is the preferred icon format for SEO. An SVG icon loads as a line of code, decreasing page load speed and improving SEO performance.

Describe SVG icons with tags.
Use the title tag in an SVG icon to name or describe the icon in a way that will assist SEO performance and accessibility. A tag can also be added to an SVG.

IconAlt text example
Example of Comment Iconalt=”chat with a Dell Technologies Advisor - 8AM to 10PM CST”
Example of Email Iconalt=”Email a Dell Sales Expert”
Example of Phone Iconalt=”Call Dell Toll-free 1-877-717-3355”

To use an icon, copy and paste the code associated with the icon you want. For SVG icons, copy the top line of code beginning with “dds,” and for font icons, copy the Unicode value beginning with a backslash on the second line.
