Our Gesture Stencil

We made a set of icons for touchscreen interaction, free gestures and mobile phone gestures. You can download it for free. We will be updating it from time to time, so feel free to comment and make suggestions for gestures to integrate in the future.

The Ten Most Commonly Used Touchscreen Gestures

Our stencil includes ten gesture icons for the most common touchscreen interactions: Tap, Double Tap, Drag, Slide, Hold/Press, Swipe (or Fling), Rotate, Press & Drag, Pinch, Spread. They are especially design for use in wireframes.


Body Gestures For Free-Form Interaction

We also included a selection of 15 gestures for interaction with Microsoft Kinect or other free-form systems. We admit that this is in no way a comprehensive overview of the possible gestures. Use it as inspiration and feel free to give us feedback for coming updates.


Mobile Phone Gestures

The five additional icons are about direct interaction with your mobile phone. Use these for instructional documents or interaction storyboards.
