A Humble Collection of Amazing Icon Inspiration

We all use icons in our designs, some create there own and some browse for stock icons or free icons. Creating your own icons is very time consuming and not all web designer have the time or the knowhow to create them.

Another point could be that the project budget isn’t that high or the client simply doesn’t want to pay you for creating custom icons and is happy with you using stock icons or free icons. And not to be disrespectful but we all know that many web designers aren’t capable of creating these pixel perfect icons, it’s a profession on it’s own. And therefore we all should be very thankful that they share them with us.

And here’s a nice collection of free, amazing and ready to use icons for your next project. Before using any of these icons please read the license agreements, just to be sure.
