Project Icon Set For Free Download


Over the last months we’ve heard numerous complaints about the lack of quality in our freebie releases. We are aware that our readers have high expectations and we try to do our best to meet them in our posts. In this post and in the following one1 we release two beautiful professional icon sets that will hopefully meet your expectations and will come in handy in your projects.

Project Icon Set

This icon set, designed by Navdeep Raj2 and released for Smashing Magazine and its readers, contains 18 beautiful icons related to project management. The set includes the icons address card, bar graph, calendar, clock / time, conference device, contact, documents, draft, mail, marker, milestone, notes, portfolio, project plan / gant chart, search / find, sitemap / flowchart, todo and user / resource.


The files are transparent PNGs, and vector Fireworks source files are included as well. As always, the set is completely free and may be used for any private or commercial project without any restrictions whatsoever.

Download the set for free!


We express sincere gratitude to Navdeep for his great work. Please let us know in the comments if this release meets your expectations. And if not, please let us know what we could improve in the upcoming releases!

    Complaining about free? Sounds like a bunch of losers to me… Maybe they should make something awesome others can use for free.

    Thank you!

  17. 17

    These are great icons!

    Does “no restrictions whatsoever” mean that I can use them in a template (e.g. template for sale on themeforest)?

    (SM) Yes, of course.

  18. 18

    Great, thanks.

  19. 19

    Wow, amazing icons!

    (apart from the search icon that kinda sucks – sorry!)

  20. 20

    Nice. Very practical. (That’s a compliment, btw.) :-)

  21. 21

    LOL, I’ll have to start licensing my surname!
    Otherwise, great icons! Thanks!

  22. 22

    Thanks! Been looking for something like this. Smashing Magazine for the win!

  23. 23

    Awesome icons set. Lets see much more of these kinds of icons, and much fewer silly acorn icons. The acorn icons are cool, but I can’t even guess at a site that would need them.

  24. 24

    Milestone looks more like a gravestone xD

  25. 25

    Look amazing. Thanks for the contribution!

  26. 26

    Nice and useful set of icons. I should send an icon set too. Damn time, it is never enough.

  27. 27

    thx for share

  28. 28

    Thanks again these icons really nice.

  29. 29

    Cool and very useful Icons. Looks like I was absent for a couple of days at SM. :P

  30. 30

    Super, Fireworks source PNGs! I learn so much by “looking under the hood” at talented people’s work.

  31. 31

    Really nice… Love it….

  32. 32

    Thanks guys.

  33. 33

    thq. really great stuff.

  34. 34

    clean and clear icon, great!

  35. 35

    excellent work Navdeep, i’m just working on an assignment for my PM diploma and these will add some appropriate flare to the dullness of the 9 knowledge areas :)

  36. 36

    One more time a great icon set. Thanks!

  37. 37

    Wow, these are totally awesome! :D

  38. 38

    Lack of quality?

    Do readers have any clue how long even either the simplest wordpress theme or icon set takes to develop? Hours of time. And the designers are basically giving this stuff away for free.

    Seriously, start IP banning all the idiots that complain about the quality of the freebies.

    (Note: complaints about ARTICLE quality are still as valid as ever.. you guys have a reputation to uphold)

    Thanks alot..

    I love the set! Great works as always!

  41. 41

    Nice Collection Set

  42. 42

    Very interesting set, but not all the icons have the same angle, and some of them like the Search, ToDo and User/Resource Icons are not as detailed and stylished as the other.
    But I really 100% enjoy all the others (I love the James Bond Adress Card !) that I will definitly use in my projects.
    It’s just my subjective critic, that I can give to another Web designer, we all need fair critics to improve and get better, day after day :)
    Thx again !

  43. 43

    Very nice. Thanks!

    “Seriously, start IP banning all the idiots that complain about the quality of the freebies.”

    That has to be the STUPIDEST comment I’ve read in quite a while.

    Cool Stuff…. Million Thanx man!!!!

  62. 62

    I had the same problem as flesh in comment #50. I appreciate this freebie, but it was provided in such a way that if you extract it in some XP machines, it becomes impossible to delete some of those files without some comprehensive method that I have yet to discover. If you have received many complaints about this and know a solution to be able to delete the files, please let me know about it.

    Seems nice. But feels that after the first 6, the quality and idea of those icons starts to fade.

  64. 64

    to post 1 and “we didnt start the fire” lol had to do it

  65. 65

    Nice work Navdeep :)
    Thanks Navdeep and SM

    Very nice,…saludos from chile !
    thanks! :)

  68. 68

    Like these very much !

  69. 69

    having the same issue in vista, the files are not unzipping fully and then leaving partial files and folders which will not delete. Does anyone have a solution to this? Or can someone provide a cleaned-up version of the file? not trying to complain about a freebie, but corrupt files is a bit lame

    • 70

      to delete
      1.create a folder in documents.
      2.folder cut and paste into new folder
      3.start cmd.
      4.filename rd / s / q

  89. 90

    How do i edit the text in the icons?

  90. 91

    First of all, thanks for the files, great work.

    But if any other has any problem deleting the folders, try use your cmd promt and browse to the folder with the files and user the comand
    dir /x
    this will show the file names as ex: CLOCK~1
    use this name when deleting:
    del CLOCK~1

  91. 92

    So Woooow

  92. 93

    bekar hai

  93. 94

    I cant delete them ….why plz hellp me?!!!!

  94. 95


    To delete the file, follow the instructions posted here:

    *Hint: To get to the root of the directory in Command Prompt, type “cd..” (without the quotes) twice. You should then have “C:>” in a new line to begin the command.
