Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

It seems to me to standardize the Fund’s projects, it is necessary to use at least OOui icons and colors from Wikimedia Style Guide. What do you think about it?

Hi @Iniquity. Thanks for bringing this up. On the mobile apps teams we utilize custom icons so that we can match the look and feel of the native UI (iOS and Android respectively). The iOS icons are based off of the OOUI icons but adapted to fulfill the requirements of Apple's HIG (https://developer.apple.com/design/human-interface-guidelines/ios/icons-and-images/custom-icons/). Additionally we do use the Style Guide Colors in the app, although we have added three new palettes based off of the Style Guide palette for our reading themes (you can read more about the design process here: https://blog.wikimedia.org/2017/12/04/ios-app-dark-theme/)

Hi, @cmadeo :) Thanks for your answer.

It is strange because I see here really random icons with different style.

@Iniquity yes! We do need to do some clean-up and consistency.

Do I need to create new task or we can use this one?

We'll be addressing the icon updates as we finish work on the editing toolbar. I'll link to that ticket once I have it written. Thanks for your help
