How to create icons
in the EG style
Our icons only use as many lines as needed to capture the essence of each subject matter. Keep in mind – eliminating lines does not mean it has to be boring.
Stick to flat design and never use perspective.
Use fundamental shapes such as squares, triangles, and circles. Stick to 90 or 45 degree angles when possible. Round edges or use curves sparingly.
Merge line work and combine shapes to create less work for your eyes. Subtle continuation and closure results in clever, efficient icons.
Though simple, our icons can still have personality and feel unique to Expedia Group. Include "spark" when an icon feels incomplete or imbalanced.
Icons can be combined with our signature half-circles and squares to create a cohesive pattern

Icons should never be smaller than 0.75 inch or wider than 1.5 inches.
Exceptions include certain mediums such as VTC screens, digital signage, or the web where images are automatically scaled up and down.
