Bookmark icons

Some site icons designed by CookandKaye

Returning visitors are important to most websites, so helping them find the bookmark they make to your site is only sensible. After all, your competitors only gets a look-in when they re-do the search! The bookmark icon is an important visual cue for links in the bookmark folder. Bookmark icons are always simple by necessity, as the artwork is constrained to a 16 by 16 pixel square. We will normally create a bookmark icon for a website as part of the development process, where possible this is based on the site logo (whether or not we have developed that component), but occasionally we need to take a tangential approach to design to get something that is memorable, related to the site, and possible to render at the required resolution! A few examples of our work are shown above.
