10 Amazing Resources to Find Free Icons

10 Amazing Resources to Find Free Icons

It is always good to remind ourselves of the importance that icons hold for designers, a simple series of icons can make all the difference to our work. When creating a layout we clearly see an improvement after using icons, no matter how simple these may be. Not only do we use them for web design, but also when creating applications for smartphones, no matter what the task at hand is, a designer can never have enough icons.

An issue we have come across and would like to call your attention to, is the fact that some icons are not free and therefor cannot be used in the creation of layouts or applications without a fee, some are not for sale at all.

Instead of spending time searching for icons , today’s post is dedicated to a number of sites where you can find all the icons you might ever need. We hope to save you a lot of time.
