Vector Icon Set

The vector icon set component provides the flexibility to add a URL link to an icon on a web page layout. Icons are custom SVG files that reflect the CCNY brand created by the Office of Institutional Advancement and Communications. A content editor should reach out to Prem Nankoo or Seamus Campbell to set up the icons.

Please note, as a content editor, you will not have access to upload or select icons, but you will have the option to rearrange the icons, title, and link.

Details with Icon Set

This component enables you to split the page into two sections: content on the left and icons on the right. The icons provide clickable links for users to navigate to other pages. It's worth noting that there's a library of icons accessible to all content editors. If the existing icons don't suit your needs, please feel free to contact the web team. We'll design new icons and integrate them into the library.
