Favicons 101

Posted June 30, 2017

A favicon, is a small graphic, usually only 16×16 pixels in size, which are used in web browsers to identify a website. Lots of designers overlook the Importance of the favicon due to its small size, at CWS we like to think of it as one of the many ways we can add a special touch. You can see favicons within the tabs of chrome.

We create a wide range of favicon icons which work on every device. (17 different versions to be precise).

When designing favicons, we like to try and keep them simple (Ours is just a “C”), there are some rules which we try and stick to though.

Hopefully this post will clear up any confusion surrounding favicons
