Project:Visual identity


This page defines a visual language that the MediaWiki community can use to refer to its various activities. It serves as a coordination and reference page to use a set of reusable, consistent and recognizable icons across mediums (wiki pages, blog posts, slides, etc.).

We aim to follow the Wikimedia Foundation icon philosophy. In order to have a consistent but expanding repository of graphics to pick from, it was decided to use icons from the Noun Project. These icons are all in SVG format, allowing us to use them at any resolution without pixelation, including in presentations and posters.

Because some images require specific attribution, this page also serves as a list of credits, which is particularly useful if they don't use the standard link behavior.
