DISCLAIMER: Fulfillment of icon requests is not guaranteed and depends on factors such as: currently prioritized subject matter, the volume of requests, and the complexity of the requests. If you have questions about custom icons, please reach out to us at [email protected] or via the chat bubble in the bottom right corner of the interface.

If your icon request is highly complex, we might not be able to complete it by the guaranteed delivery date or at all, depending on your plan type. 

Thus, we ask all users to request the simplest version of the icon needed to communicate their science effectively. This ensures faster icon completion and higher icon clarity. 

A combination of 5 factors determines the overall complexity of an icon:

  1. Level of detail

  2. Number of individual parts

  3. Patterns, segments, textures

  4. Transparency

  5. Level of realism

Here are some visual examples:
