Today we are glad to release a Free Medical Icons Set, a set with 60 original medical icons in .png 32 bit in resolutions 32×32px and 128×128px. This set was designed by the user interface design agency Centigrade1 and released exclusively for Smashing Magazine and its readers. The icons can serve as great in-app icons for desktop or RIAs in the medical domain. With perspective and reflective effects these can be a real stunner on landing pages or in touch screen application menus.
Download the icon set for free!
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. 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.
Behind the design
As always, here are some insights from the designers:
There are a lot of free icon libraries out there, however, only few of them focus mainly on medical icons and we wanted this gap to be closed. Centigrade conducted quite a lot of icon projects in the healthcare sector just recently, for which reason we already had some nice vector shapes on the pile. We distilled the most frequently requested metaphors and wrapped them into a fresh new style. Being modern and concise rather than fancy and playful, they are in line with what we experienced works well in the medical domain.
Thank you very much, guys! We really appreciate your efforts.
