The following is a list of resources that may come in handy for nostr designers and developers.

Nostr Icons

The following icons were created by the community. Since Nostr doesn't have a logo that everyone can agree on, it is up to the app developer to decide which icon they wish to use. See the Figma file for production-ready icons. You can also download the zip file containing PNG and SVG versions of light and dark icons.
