HackerNoon's Pixel Icon Library

Introducing HackerNoon’s Pixel Icon Library V2, an open-source collection of 1440+ Pixelated Icons. Meticulously designed on a 24px grid, ensuring perfect alignment and consistency to enrich your web/app/product/page/life experience. Inspired by HackerNoon’s retro design vibe, these icons capture the essence of the internet's good old days.

What’s in the Pixel Icon Library?

  • 360+ Unique Pixelated Vector Icons
  • Light SVG Files - 176.6 KB for the entire collection.
  • PNG files in 12px, 16 px, 24px, and 48px for both Light/Dark Mode
  • Multiple Ways to Use - Install via NPM Package, Directly via HTML & CSS, and via a Figma component library.


HTML Image

Using the <img /> element directly in your HTML file.

<img src="path/to/icon.svg" alt="icon title" />

Inline HTML

You can paste the content of the icon file directly into your HTML code to display it on the page using the <svg> </svg> tag.

 // Add your SVG code here


Instead of using an HTML <img /> element, you can use CSS instead and apply it as a background to any other element.

body {
  background-image: url(path/to/icon.svg);

SVG as an object

You can also use the <object> tag to add the SVG to your page

<object data="path/to/icon.svg" width="24" height="24"> </object>

Using <iframe>

Keep in mind that using iframe is not recommended, because its hard to maintain

<iframe src="path/to/icon.svg"> </iframe>

SVG as embed

Most of the modern browsers have deprecated plugins, so this is not recommended.

<embed src="path/to/icon.svg" />


HackerNoon’s Pixel Icon Library is available as a Figma Community File. To use the components, log in to your Figma account and duplicate the file to your drafts.
