Today we are glad to release Practika: a free set of 11 practical and useful high-quality icons, designed by DryIcons1, especially for Smashing Magazine and its readers. The icons are available in resolutions 64×64px, 128×128px and 256×256px, in 32-bit transparency PNG. These icons can be used for a variety of purposes — in particular, in portfolios and in corporate designs.
Download the Set for Free!
You can use the set for all of your projects for free and without any restrictions. However, it’s forbidden to sell them. Please link to this article if you would like to spread the word.
Motivation Behind the Design
As usual, here are some insights from the designers themselves:
“When asked to design a set of icons for Smashing Magazine, DryIcons’ designers decided to create a practical, user-friendly icon set, one that could have a large range of uses, and look great at the same time. Our main motivation for this icon set was to give the readers something they could really use.
The “Practika” icon set is stylish and elegant and can find its use in all websites, blogs, applications. The set contains 11 high quality web icons in 32-bit transparency in PNG file format. They come in 64x64px, 128x128px and 256x256px size.”
Thank you, guys!
