For icons that could be used on touch screens, a minimum icon size of 24x24 pixels is recommended.

The amount of detail can differ depending on the icon. For example, the camera (snapshot) icon needs slightly more detail than an eye (show) icon to help it to be recognisable as a camera.
It's fine to make slight exceptions if sticking to the guidelines compromises the readability of the icon.
Only use colours from the Honeycomb colour palette. Using mostly red, white, black, and grey, with hints of blue, green, or orange.
When we need to use a skin tone in an illustration
Use solid geometric shapes in bold ways. This helps to reflect Redgate's simplicity and reliability.
Prioritize the Redgate database shape (right), it's an important part of Redgate's visual identity.
Using the rounded lines in illustrations can help soften the solid geometric shapes - they can add movement, and help give a more approachable feel.
Don't create illustrations solely from the rounded lines, use them sparingly.
Keep it simple, only use the details you need.
A great way of finding out if you need a certain detail is by deleting it. Is the illustration still understandable without the detail? Does it still support the message? Or is it more confusing without it?
