When it comes to web and mobile app UI design, one of the most time-consuming tasks an interface designer will have to accomplish is creating a consistent collection of icons or glyphs that compliment the design of the UI. Thankfully, there are many professionally designed, ready-made icon sets freely available to use in your web and mobile application projects.
Here you will find hundreds of free icon sets, covering many design styles and trends, including flat design, Material Design, line-style icons, block-styles, icon fonts, mobile icons (iOS & Android), and even a few old school skeuomorphic sets.
Finding the perfect icon for any design project can be very difficult, especially when you have to to sift through the thousands upon thousands off icon-sets that are freely available. Not only will this waste you a huge amount of productive time, actually finding the icon you need is pretty darn close to being impossible.
The Grass Textured Social Icon Set has been created by Richie Thimmaiah, from RichWorks exclusively for Speckyboy Design Magazine readers and are free to use for both your personal and commercial projects but may not be modified, sold or redistributed.
Last month we published , via Iconshock, an amazing icon set called Political Characters, a selection humorous caricatures of famous world political figures – that was volume 1, and today we have the opportunity to share volume 2.
In this Go Green! Web Icon Set, you will find 108 different icons you can use for your website, blog or your application. The set comes with eCommerce icons, social media, computer accessories, multimedia and a hell of a lot more! These icons are available in 64 x 64 px and in transparent .png formats for which you can easily change the hues to match your needs.
As an added bonus, Iconshock, designers of these amazing icons, have allowed us to publish another free icon set for our readers. This time around the icons are humorous caricatures of famous world political figures.
I hope you enjoy them.
A pictogram is a graphical symbol that can represent a sign or even, simple instructions, in essence, a concept that has been stripped down to its bare essentials, yet still recognizable as the original idea.
Pictograms can be of help with usability and accessibility on your web site. It is a universal language, everyone understands and can read the icons.
If you have followed this design magazine for a while, you will know how much we love well designed icons, especially the free variety. So, when Iconshock offered us the opportunity to have an icon-set exclusively designed for our readers, we jamp at the chance.
