The first thing you should do after creating a new document type in Kentico is give that document type a unique icon. Icons help content editors visually distinguish between different document types when browsing the tree and creating new documents. The document icons can be found in the following directory:

[Web Root]\ App_Themes\Default\Images\DocumentTypeIcons

There will be a default icon for your document type in this directory named in the format [namespace]_[document type].png. You will want to replace this file with your new icon. Most icons for document types in the CMS are 16px wide by 16px high. Using icons that have these same dimensions will keep the aesthetic flow of the tree.

Here is a list of icon resources that work well with Kentico:
