Business Dashboard Icons
Business Intelligence Dashboards rely on visual indicators and graphics to quickly impart information. Nothing does this faster than a good icon. Literally, a simple dashboard icon graphic can take the place of several paragraphs of text. Even among data representation techniques, we find this true. A small sparkline can replace a whole graph of trend data.
Many Dashboard Spy readers have asked me to point them to icon sets that work well for business dashboards. I’m happy to finally reveal several incredible collections of no cost, no restriction icons great for business intelligence application use.
Start with the silk icon set at famfamfam. Here is a screengrab of a small part of the collection. Note the red/green/yellow icons. In this case, they are represented by flags. Also, you may find useful the user icons and the color tag labels.
FamFamFam also offers for free the Mini Icons Collection. You may find some good dashboarding icons in that set, particularly if you need small icons.
Hope you like these icon sets. Hey, their small, impactful, and free. What’s not to like? Try them on your business intelligence dashboard.
