Simplicio: A Free Icon Set


We are always looking for creative and talented artists and designers. Once we find them, we ask them to cooperate with us and release something for free. We provide them with the full freedom to showcase their professionalism and express their creativity. Every release helps to make the Web a nicer place. In fact, the results are quite often pretty impressive. You can find our previous releases in our section Freebies.

Smashing Icon Set

Today we are glad to release a Simplicio icon set. The main motivation behind the design was to create a simple, even minimalistic set which can fit into every project. The set contains 78 free icons in .png and .ico including AI which can be useful for both corporate and personal setting. You can use the set for free – without any restrictions whatsoever.

The icons are available in the .png- and .ico-formats in the resolution 128×128px. AI-sources are also included in the package. This icon set was designed by Neurovit from Turkey especially for Smashing Magazine and its readers.

Download Icons For Free! Link

You can use the icons for private and commercial projects, blogs and web-sites for free, without any restrictions whatsoever. However, you are not allowed to sell or redistribute the icons without author’s and Smashing Magazine’s permission.

    did you really just post the download type as a .rar –what a jackass. Nice crap frosting on a beautiful cake. Now I will not use them because I do not have time to install shit to open rars. Nice customer focus

    One of these days, I would love to create an icon set for Smashing mag. I’ve done several for my own use, but never for mass consumption. What a great idea!

    The colors could benefit from a bit of work for my own personal tastes, but the icons themselves are pretty hot. I especially like the simplified approach to some of these. I’ll definitely be checking these out the next time I need some icons. Thanks for sharing the set! MakeDesign,NotWar

    They look like small stickers. (That’s a compliment).

  25. 25

    great download. simplicity is great

  26. 26

    I can’t open this download – it is a .rar file and Windows has offered me two options that cost money. Doesn’t seem like a good way to fold up a file that’s supposed to be free?

  27. 27

    Great that other people want to make icons for Smashing Magazine – take heed guys ;-)

    The icons are nice and clean which is normally what I go for but I don’t see a use for them in my projects. Thanks though!

  28. 28

    don’t these icons somehow perfectly fit to google’s chrome browser color invironment? good work, nice and fresh new approach.

  29. 29

    I have a question on the license…

    Can I use these (and other smashing mag free icons) as part of a CMS template that is distributed a) free, or b) commercially?
