Freebie: Nice Things Icon Set (128 Icons, PNG + AI Source)

Inspiration strikes at funny times. Chris Behr was just watching TV and playing around with the Shape tools in Illustrator. He casually divided a square into a grid, then randomly colored it. Then he combined the grid with a couple of icons that he had been doodling the night before. Thus, Nice Things was born, a set of 128 original, beautiful icons that we are honoured to present to you.

Preview

Chris wanted to make it as easy as possible for you to hit the ground running. So, you get three PNG sizes: 100×100, 400×400 and 800×800 pixels — all available with and without backgrounds. In addition, the set includes the original source AI file, complete with named layers, to help you find what you need.
