Whatever you do, do not do it yourself.

If you don’t have the resources to hire an icon designer, use Iconographer to get a decent result:

If you do have resources, hire someone. There are some great places to start looking, like

My (personal) Do-Nots:

  • Do not do it yourself. If you were a good artist, you wouldn’t be a good coder. Jack of all trades, master of none.
  • Do not use places that do it for ultra cheap like fiverr, there’s a reason people there can’t get more than $5 for their work.
