The Ultimate Collection of 50+ Free Icon Sets


Can you imagine a website without icons? It’s like a house without windows… Of course you can’t as they are used everywhere on the web. We got used to these small helpers making the interfaces more user-friendly and aesthetically appealing.

As all of us know an icon is a pictogram displayed on a computer screen. It is aimed to help the user swiftly navigate through the website. These small pictures or symbols are quick, intuitive representations of software tools, functions or data files accessible on the system. It performs as an electronic hyperlink or file shortcut to access the program or data. Combined with windows, menus and a pointing device, icons form the graphical UI and enable the user to easily and intuitively navigate the system.

There are three types of icons out there:

Standardized electrical device free icons. These are common computer icons used across a wide range of electrical equipment. Power symbol and the USB icon are good examples of this type. Icons standardization is an important safety-feature as it enables a user to navigate an unfamiliar system freely.

Desktop metaphor free icons. This type of hyperlink icons represents objects common in a physical office space and desktop environment. I.e.: file, file folder, trashcan, inbox are desktop metaphor icons. The original purpose of this model is to enable the users, familiar with common office practices and functions, intuitively navigate the computer desktop and system.

Brand icons for commercial software. The next type of computer icons is the brand icon of commercial third-party software programs available on the computer system. Brand icons are bundled with their product and installed on a system with the software. They perform similar to the hyperlink icons, representing functionality accessible on the system and providing links to either a software program or data file. Beyond this, they act as a company identifier and advertiser.

The icons as well as other design elements are subject to web fashion. Now designers tend to use flat, simple, sketchy icons. They often have circular form, which is also a current trend.

Sure enough that custom designs as well as custom icons are great because they are unique. Personal style is always in demand, but creating each and every little site element from scratch is a costly business demanding not only much money, but also time and efforts. A rare client is ready to pay thousands of dollars for a website having no guarantee that the investments will pay off. Besides, not every designer has the ability to design from scratch. The tough reality is that professionals should work quickly, stay within client’s budget, meet customer’s expectations and deadlines. Very often web designers, as well as other IT specialists, work under pressure. Maybe that is the reason why they burn out so frequently.

Though, designers are pushing and use plenty of life hacks to free their time, save efforts without any quality loss. Freebies are one of those hacks. Don’t have enough time to search for them all over the net? Go no further. DesignDay Club collects various free icon sets for different purposes available for free download. Having them at hand you will be able to focus on more important things and polish them to perfection.
