Our icon libraries have strong guidelines setup to ensure naming of every icon is as consistent and expandable as possible.
Base names are generally the noun representation of an icon. In some cases this may also be the more common software term for the icon.
All naming must be in the exact order below.
bottom position modifiers denote direction pointing. Ex: diagonal arrow.
Alternatively the position modifiers
down would be used for corners. These can still have arrows, but must never point diagonally.
Weight of the icon, essentially the thickness.
The plus modifier can be appended to any noun icon.
The account modifer can be shown inside of an icon or to the right.
Modifiers are consistent across all icons in their representation.
