Flavour Extended: The Ultimate Icon Set For Web Designers


A couple of months ago we released the beautiful Flavours Icon set1 that was designed by Oliver Twardowski2, a graphic designer from Bonn, Germany, the set aimed to help designers in their Web and user interface designs, containing 177 icons in a resolution of 48×48 pixels. In this post we release the updated version of the icon set, now with 452 icons, freely available to use in private or commercial projects.


The files are transparent PNGs, and the source file (.psd) is available for download as well (see the links below). 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 (450+ icons)!



We express sincere gratitude to Oliver for his truly amazing 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!

Motivation behind the design

As usual, here are some insights from the designer himself:

After releasing my first pixel-based iconset ‘flavour’ right here at Smashing magazine, the feedback of the readers was incredible! I received tons of emails, awesome critics and plenty of suggestions for the sequel. Back then I wrote that I wanted to create and publish a second version. So I took a little time out of icon design to get my mind clear and then started to work on the <<extended>>-package. With the ideas in my head and the great suggestions I got from you, designing Flavour <<extended>> was a blast and so much fun for me. Finally I came up with 270 new icons – many more than I would have expected initially. And I hope you like them all and use them in your web-projects.

As last time, all icons are 100% free to use for both private and commercial projects and all the .psd-sources are available to download as well. Please feel free to learn from them and make them fit your personal needs if they don’t do yet.

Have fun with the package and please feel free to support me with more feedback in the comments, via email at icons [at] addictedtocoffee.de or on Twitter10! Together we can even create a third part if you like one to be released!

Best wishes from Bonn, Germany,


What icons do you miss in this set?

Please let us know and we’ll design them for you and release in the final version of the package!

    Great icon’s but not as useful as the famfamfam icons.

    The problem with these kinda detailed icons is that it’s hard to make them fit in you design. 1 color or black and white icons are usually much more useful. You can adjust the colors easily. But I guess that’s what the psd’s are for :)

    Amazing. Thanks!

    Great! thanks for the hard work.
    Some says that silk still the best and the ultimate free package.
    I agree but silk is a functions icons, excellent for any dynamic web app.
    BUT these icons are great for other tasks

    Amazing set, Oliver.

    I typically don’t leave comments too often on design blogs but a thank you is in order for sharing your work, free of charge, and having the grace to include the PSD file.

    Very kind and great work as well. Take care.

    I agree with Kevin G. I would also like to see a phone.

    Also a mail icon without anything in the top right corner (i.e. add, forward, alert) would be great.

    Amazing set. Thank you so much!
