Because our brains remember images better than text, your audience will be more likely to remember the concepts you want to convey with an accompanying image. Icons are also popular for other reasons: They can be universal, understood by people speaking different languagesThey can be small, which means they work on screens of all sizesThey are small files because they’re simple, which is valuable on smaller devices with little storage.
