They say a picture paints a thousand words. Well, our icons do that too. They're the ultimate shorthand — straightforward, simple, accessible.

Home icon and globe icon side by side.
Minus icon.
Less is more

Solid lines, simple shapes, no unnecessary parts. Easy as that.

Eye icon.
Universally understood

We’re not trying to reinvent the wheel (icon). Clarity trumps clever concepts, especially for a global audience.

Collapse icon.
A perfect pairing

The icons are designed to complement our 2 typefaces — Wise Sans and Inter.

They feature the same rounded corners of Wise Sans, the cleaner form and light weights of Inter, and the square terminals of both.

Choosing the right asset

Our assets each come with their own set of strengths. So we’ve outlined which asset to use where. And what the impact of that will be.

If you’re talking about product functions, or there are multiple products on one screen, use icons.

If it’s a moment of celebration, something metaphorical, or just something bigger on screen, use an illustration.

Finally, if you’re after a change of pace, or it’s more easily said than done, just use words.

Colour variations

In most cases, icons sit on neutral backgrounds. And the icon colour depends on whether it is interactive or informational.

There is also a white version designed to work against a neutral surface. The bright green background is used very sparingly.

Go to colour guidance.

Beach icon

For interactive elements like close buttons we use Forest Green (Interactive Primary) on a neutral background.

Freeze icon.

For informational icons in lists, like in option components, use Content Primary on a neutral background.

White background

For use on neutral backgrounds, there is an alternative version with a white circular background.

Bright Green backgrounds are used very sparingly to highlight — whether it’s a button or the selected category in a list.

Using icons expressively

Icons can be used outside of their functional boundaries to communicate key features in a far more expressive manner.
