DressUp! Avatars Icon Set


Today we are glad to release DressUp! Avatars Icon Set, a set with 16 original avatar icons in .png. This set was designed by Dante Michael Afrondoza1 especially for Smashing Magazine and its readers. The set was created from scratch using Adobe Fireworks — the .png-sources are available for free download as well. The icons are available in 128×128px.

You can use the set for all of your projects for free and without any restrictions. You can freely use it for both your private and commercial projects, including software, online services, templates and themes.

Behind the design

As always, here are some insights from the designer herself:

“This is my first avatar set that I made from scratch using Adobe Fireworks CS3. My inspiration for the set were the avatars made by Iconka6. After seeing how they made it look easy with a different program, I had to try it with Fireworks.

I’ve done vector graphics before, using Flash and Photoshop, but this set was a learning experience for me. The reason why I used Fireworks is because we only had one copy of Adobe CS3 Web Premium, and my officemate already uses Photoshop on his computer. I made this initially as a set of profile images for use by our client, but it eventually evolved into something more personal.

It emphasizes how much fun I had learning Fireworks, that I just made more for my friends.”

Thank you very much, Michael! We appreciate your efforts.
