Smashing Conf Barcelona 2016

We use ad-blockers as well, you know. We gotta keep those servers running though. Did you know that we publish useful books and run friendly conferences — crafted for pros like yourself? E.g. upcoming SmashingConf Barcelona, dedicated to smart front-end techniques and design patterns.

Cheers: A Free “Social” Icon Set

We love to release freebies. Every release helps to make the Web a nicer place, which is why we support designers and challenge them to release something for free in order to be featured on Smashing Magazine. And the results are quite often pretty impressive.

Icon Set1

Today we are happy to release Cheers: a free set of 12 “social” glasses, designed by Helen Gkizi from Webtoolkit4me2, especially for Smashing Magazine and its readers.

Download the Set for Free! Link

You can use the set for all of your projects for free and without any restrictions. However, it’s forbidden to sell them. Please link to this article if you would like to spread the word.

Cheers Icon Set3

Motivation Behind the Design Link

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

“It’s really funny if you think about it as the motivation behind it was a simple and basic question. Helen is a graphic designer specializing in invitation and brochure design. The question was “Can you design icons” and she said “Sure why not, what kind of icons?”

Gerasimos browsed through a few sets and that was it. She had her first one ready in about 30 minutes. We just said “glasses”. Icon in a glass. Gerasimos and Helen run a small design agency in Thessaloniki, Greece. He is a web designer she’s in the print business. But now he thinks they need to expose this talent somehow and here it is. Their “web 2.0 in a glass”. Cheers!”

Last But Not Least Link

We are constantly looking for creative designers and artists. You may not know it yet, but we may feature you in one of our upcoming posts.

If you would like to release a free high-quality font, a WordPress theme, Photoshop brushes, a Drupal theme, some wallpapers or an icon set, please contact us5. We would like to support you (both financially and with the broad readership of Smashing Magazine).

    Thanks! Now when my clients ask for an RSS logo in the shape of a beer glass, I’ll be sweet.

    Thank you Smashing Magazine for taking care of my glassware-shaped social-bookmarking website icon needs!

    I’m eagerly awaiting a set of RSS feed icons shaped like olde-worlde woodworking tools. Please also consider doing more articles about how superior Apple computers are, because I really did enjoy the last one you ran… so informative!
