Icons are a necessity when building a website or an app. They’re used practically everywhere and for different reasons. Some designers use them for aesthetic reasons, while others use them for more practical ones. The hamburger menu icon, for example, is up to a certain point used for practical reasons, thanks to its familiarity.

There are other icons, though, that are used to beautify a website. Most websites with minimalist design make good use of icons, by enriching the layout without cluttering it.

Icons are a small and efficient way to add a certain vibe to a website and they come in various shapes, sizes, and styles. For example, there are some that are small illustrations with beautiful details that can bring color to your design.

If you are a web or UI designer, chances are you’ll need some icons to use in your projects. What if they would be free to use, would that make it better? Of course, it would.
