Icons and visual clues are important additions to any web app, but they can be difficult to create yourself because of the tiny dimensions.

Luckily there are stacks of free high-quality icon sets out there on the web, that have been created by talented designers. You can be sure that you’ll find almost any style of the icon you need in this collection of packs.

  1. Thanks for this useful collection. As a designer, I have no problems with designing icons of a larger size (around 40px+) – it's these micro ones that I struggle with in retaining detail, so these will come in very handy :)

    Thanks Chris :)

    Please add the Fugue icon set by Yusuke Kamiyamane. They are well worthy of inclusion here, they are infact probably my favorite icon set at the moment. Find them here:
