Freebie: Summer And Essentials Icon Set (50 Icons, EPS, AI, PNG)


For those of you who are impatiently waiting for summer to finally arrive, we’re pleased to feature an icon set that will help make the wait worthwhile. Today’s icon set includes 50 icons that have been designed by Elena Genova1431 exclusively for Smashing Magazine and its readers.

A quick preview of the “Summer” and “Essentials” icon set.

If you’ve been looking for a way to welcome summer and freshen up your designs with even more colors, then this freebie will not disappoint you.

Insights From The Designer:

“I’ve always worked with ‘quality, not quantity’ approach to design. Ever since I created my first icon set back in 2007, the detail and the balance of an icon have been the two ‘ingredients’ I’ve always paid close attention to. It took me almost 2 years to finally bring to life the concept of the Vintage Flat Icons bundle that I’d come up with, but I feel like it was worth every second.

When creating icons, the biggest challenge, I find, is not only to come up with accessible metaphors, but also to create a color scheme that will emphasize and unravel the idea behind the set. The Vintage Flat Icons, as suggested by the name, were created with two of the most popular design trends of today – ‘flat’ and ‘vintage’ – which are reflected in the shapes, as well as the colors of this set. And, by the way, these icons are designed to look good on both light and dark backgrounds, to add diversity to your work and the icons themselves.”

    Looking good. The worst thing about icon sets is, that if you want to use them in a web project and you want consistency, then there will always be one needed icon that’s not available in that icon set so you have to move on. I can’t imagine a project where this particular icon set covers all needed icons.

      True! But why not fire up your image editor tool of choice and add the ones your missing in the style of the icon set? Thanks for this set, I like it!

      @Summit, there are 200+ icons in the full icons bundle – I’m sure you can find all the icons you need. If not, you are welcome to suggest icons that need to be added and I’ll consider adding them to the bundle. Feel free to contact me via Contact Me form on my website or via Creative Market

      The worst thing about free icons is … people complaining about free icons. It is free.

      Look at it this way: perhaps the designer wants to get noticed by giving free icons, on which he probably spent a lot of hours – if you want to use it, and you are missing an icon, then why not contact said designer and commission him (pay him) to design the missing icon.

    I think these are great. It seems that designers are in a like-minded state when it comes to summer, I posted some free summer vectors only a few days ago:

    A friend and I wrote a small tool with which you can create a png in from any Font Awesome Icon. They have ca 350 icons. You can define color and size of the icons individually. Check
