25 Business Icons For PowerPoint Every Presenter Must Have in Their Kitty

Thanks to the way our computer’s GUI (graphic user interface) and smartphones are designed, icons have become a part of our life.

Imagine if these tiny images are replaced by text on our screens! Ugly, right?

So is that the only reason icons are used in design — to make things look pretty? A big no. They do have an aesthetic value for sure but more importantly, they carry a functional value.

These tiny visual elements carry symbolic value and represent a concept, action or an idea. They may be tiny but they are powerful. Their power lies in their simplicity to convey ideas and meanings in such little space, without the use of a lot of words. Their powerful advantages such as enhancing usability, improving readability, increasing the aesthetic appeal of design, simplicity, ubiquitous nature have made icons a favorite among web designers.

Why should presentation design be left behind? We want our presentations to have all these qualities too.

Keeping that in mind, we have compiled a list of 25 business icons for PowerPoint that are usually required in every business presentation. Make your own icon collection today to create better and powerful PowerPoint slides. The following list gives you a headstart in this task:

P.S. All icons are 100% editable in PowerPoint — change their color, size, orientation, etc. as per your requirements. That is the beauty of flat icons!

Every business presentation has their mission, vision and goals slide, a slide on accomplishments, business targets, strengths, and finally their social media presence and contact us slide. Rather than downloading an icon each time or opening up old PPTs to find the icon used then, it is better to maintain your icon library which has all icons in that folder. It will save your time and energy.

The icons that we shared are basic icons that are readily used. If you are not using icons in your presentation, then start using this popular design element to add aesthetic appeal to your slides and reinforce your content visually. Although most of the icons we shared above are universally understood, it is advisable that you have a text label along with that icon so that there is no confusion whatsoever.
