Icons are very versatile and they can be used in different parts of a website, from headers and menus to lists and content. Because they have a condensed size and increased versatility, they have been used more and more to transmit information in an effective manner.
Icons are usually small pictures or symbols that intuitively show the content of your website. They can also be larger, becoming illustrations, and used in headers, on homepages, in graphic representations of the content, and more.
There are many ways you can use icons on a website and these 30 free icon packs from the Dribbble community will surely help you out!
