Web icons

Some icons on the Missouri State site are open sourced from Google’s Material Symbols

Others have been developed for specific use. These icons are available to designers within Adobe Creative Cloud libraries developed specifically for Missouri State. 

If you need assistance with these libraries or if you need an icon developed, reach out to Missouri State’s Creative Services.
