Fresh Freebies: Typeface, Pirates and Circular Icons

Free stuff always comes in handy. We are regularly hunting for free high-quality icons, fonts, wallpapers, plugins and scripts and present them to you, so you don’t need to search for them. As long as we find something beautiful, interesting or useful, we let you know in our posts. And now it’s time for some sweet freebies for designer’s toolbox.

Below you’ll find an excellent free font and some recently released icon sets. They all are released for free; however, please take a look at license agreements before using them in commercial applications.

You can also take a look at our previous article

What about some nerd’s furniture for true pixel ninjas? For instance, Pixelcouch14? Royal College of Art graduate (UK) Cristian Zuzunaga has devised a fabric based on a ‘pixel’ concept, which is being produced by Danish manufacturer Kvadrat and sold through Moroso15. The price is unknown yet. [via16]

    The “sticket pack” link is wrong (leading to the circular icons pack). Please fix it, I’d love to have those! :)

    Wow! that keyboard reminds me of the painstaking effort taken at the end of SW:Revenge of the Sith so it would ‘seamlessly’ tie into episode IV… gotta love the effort!

    Keep up the smashing work!

    I really like the Jura typeface, it’s a very unique take on a serif font.

    Excellent font! That couch would’ve been cool during the days of 8-bit Nintendo.

    You should definitely go that far and then invite everyone over for a PIXEL PARTY!
