The ‘Google Visual Assets Guidelines‘ include notes on how icons should appear, how to produce front-facing designs, and acceptable color combinations.

Maintaining the visual coherence of visual assets is one way a brand is shaped. The guidelines were created to help Google’s designers produce high quality work that helps strengthen identity. They are available to view on Behance in two projects, ‘Product icons and logo lockups’ and ‘User interface icons and Illustrations.’ Click through to see a selection from the guidelines:
