Custom icons can help a site design and personalize the online shopping experience. Shopping cart icons are some of the more popular icons to personalize. Here are 15 sites with effective personalized shopping cart icons.
The HappyWebbies site uses a large, sketch-style shopping cart icon that grabs your attention. If you have an item in your cart, the icon changes to a shopping cart filled with boxes.
La Patate uses a large, brown shopping bag illustration for its cart icon. When an item is added to the cart, the icon updates to include a sign sticking out of the bag detailing how many items are in the cart. La Patate uses a similar icon for its “Add To Cart” button, depicting the same brown paper bag filled with colored packages. The use of this icon variation throughout the site helps tie together the design.
In addition to having a nice “hand-drawn” feel, the Atom Bicycle cart icon stands out even more by being placed on a bright orange paint strip. While many sites use “hand-drawn” icons, this icon’s placement and color choice really make it stand out.
Chank also uses a nice hand-drawn shopping cart icon, which is personalized even more by the “A” that appears if one or more fonts is added to the cart.
The General Robots site has a beautiful cart icon that fits nicely with the site’s overall theme. This icon is only visible once an item has been added to the cart. But I would like to see this nice icon even when the cart is empty.
