Iconography is arguably the Esperanto of the digital world. Icons cannot replace the written word, yet they serve as cognitive waypoints for areas of interest and/or interaction. Iconography can also be an efficient way to communicate a concept in a small amount of space, which is increasingly important in the era of the shrinking screen. At its most basic, icon design is an exercise in illustration; at its most complex, the creation of a communication system. If understanding how to design icons wasn't enough, the way they are produced and displayed on a screen can have immeasurable impact on a person's experience. - The Medium and Mechanics of Iconography
When you design icons for your app, it's important to keep in mind that your app may be installed on a variety of devices that offer a range of pixel densities, as mentioned in Devices and Displays. But you can make your icons look great on all devices by providing each icon in multiple sizes. When your app runs, Android checks the characteristics of the device screen and loads the appropriate density-specific assets for your app. - Iconography
The prime directive of an icon is to be understood. To that end, an icon's legibility must be ensured when it is displayed. There are ways to design icons for greater legibility—especially at smaller sizes. Designing in this fashion can often come at the expense of aesthetics—or at least aesthetic options. - All About Responsive Iconography
