Ultimate Icon Package

The purpose of icons, no matter the application, is to communicate to visitors in an effective and efficient way. Icons remove the need to spell every instruction out, and thus makes more of the time and space available to communicate something to a user. Icons are great in web design as well because, again, you can communicate more to your visitors in less time, and any webmaster knows the value of web real estate. The idea is to reduce complexity and maximize usability, and icons do just that!

Here we provide a wide assortment of icons that are great for both web design and desktop use. Not all of the free icons below are allowed to be used for commercial purposes, so please read the disclaimers on each before using them in any commercial projects. However, you can feel free to use all of the icons below for private projects.
