RSS feed icons


Refer to the rules around placement of icons for RSS feeds. A number of different size icons are available.

Crest icon (iPhones & other applications)

ANU crest The ANU crest may only be used for iPhone applications and other similar application launch or shortcut icons. The crest is available in a number of sizes depending on how it will be used.

Please contact us to get the size most appropriate for your needs.

Mobile application stores

Rules for linking to the iTunes Store and the Google Play Store are subject to change, as is the icon used to represent these online repositories. To make it easier for you to keep up-to-date with the icon, we will provide correct examples below, using icons which are hosted on the central server, and classes which produce appropriate sizes.

A few points to note in the code snippets below:

  • the large icon should never be used in a 'narrow' grid column as this will cause layout problems
  • the URL should link to your specific mobile app

Graphic icons

Other icons are available in regular size (24x24px). The following show a small sample and their meaning within ANU.

As a general rule, the regular size icons are to be used on content pages. If smaller icons are required for use within applications or on dialog boxes and forms, please contact us.

Please contact us if you would like to use or develop an icon for a particular purpose. More icons will be added to this page as they're developed.

Linked icons

When linking icons they should turn bronze on hover. To do this include a onmouseover and onmouseout as per the example below, replacing 'calendar-add' with the appropriate file name and the alt attribute.
