Creative Approach to Using Web Icons and Graphic Symbols in Web Design
There is no doubt, graphic symbols and web icons have more advantages over textual links. When used alone, without words, they can greatly save the web space, providing visitors with the pleasant browsing experience. Icons can say more than a few words can. They are much easier for users to recognize and to remember than any words, as they provide users with memorable metaphors.
If used carefully and creatively, icons and graphic symbols can greatly enhance or refresh any website design, whether it is a minor update for a holiday season or some major changes in website design. These small pictures, used to represent some action or content, are a great and cost-effective way to make your online presence more visually appealing and more use-friendly. They can draw visitors’ attention to the specific areas of the website and provide visual support for text blocks and other content.
