We continue to deliver fresh high-quality freebies to our readers and we continue to pursue the diversity of subjects that we are going to cover on Smashing Magazine. From the beginning of the year each icon set is supposed to be dedicated to some specific theme or topic that may turn out to be useful for your next project. Today we are releasing 3 free high-quality icon sets.
Tools Icon Set
Tools always come in handy. For instance, if you are designing an online-store you may need some easily recognizable tool icons to indicate some categories. And this is where this set, designed by David Mottram1, may help you out. This set contains 8 free icons (bookmark, caliper, gear, hammer, screwdriver, toolbox, tools, window) in the format .png in resolutions 64×64px, 128×128px and 256×256px.
As usual, the set is available for free download and can be used without any restrictions whatsoeve. You can freely use it for both your private and commercial projects, including software, online services, templates and themes. The set may not be resold, sublicensed, rented, transferred or otherwise made available for use. Please link to this article if you would like to spread the word.
Horror Icon Set
If you are designing some project that is supposed to be scary – be it a Halloween-themed site, a private blog or an online-store with some particular merchandise – you may need some beautiful yet scary icons to set up the atmosphere on your site. David Arazim4 created a horror icon set for this very purpose. The set contains 8 icons (axe, bat, eye, grave, gun, jason, skull, voodoo) and is available for free download and use.
Twitter Icon Set
Currently everybody is speaking about Twitter. This lifestreaming application is supposed to be the next big thing. In fact, we added a “tweet about us”-image at the bottom of our posts. But maybe you would like to add something more colorful to your blog? This is why we release this icons set, a set of 6 cute tweet-birds, designed by Gopal Raju7. The package contains high-quality 360×360 transparent .png-files. The set is available for free download and use.
