Acorn Icon Set For Free Download

In this post and in the previous1 one we release two beautiful professional icon sets that will hopefully meet your expectations and will come in handy in your projects.

Acorn Icon Set Link

This icon set was designed by Monica Corduneanu2 and released especially for Smashing Magazine and its readers. The set contains 17 beautiful icons-illustrations: an envelope, book, home, laidy and the tramp, magnifying glass, mister, mister and misses, newspaper, paperclip, pencil, rain, the French, the gangster, the kids, the reader, twins and, of course, the Smashing addict.

The download package (see links below) also includes the Adobe Illustrator source file. As always, the set is completely free and may be used for any private or commercial project without any restrictions whatsoever.

Motivation behind the design Link

As usual, here are some insights from the designer:

With the help of the „Mister Acorn” icon set I’ve managed to bring a piece of nature to life. It’s about a set composed of vectorial cartoon style icons, in witch the main caracter, mister acorn is shown in diferent situations. You can see the set as a voyage of the main caracter through the world, from Italy, the magical world of cartoons, to France.

At the same time, the icons are adapted to webdesign necessities containing specific elements. It’s a free to use icon set for non-commercial purpose released in png and ai formats.

So, if you thought that acorns don’t have a soul, well think again!

Best wishes, The Creator, Monica Corduneanu from Creatures Land6.

Thank you, Monica! Please let us know in the comments if this release meets your expectations. And if not, please let us know what we could improve in the upcoming releases!

    I have to say, this is definitely the weirdest icon set I’ve seen on Smashing Magazine :-)

    Acorns? I mean, they’re nice and all, but not very practical I suppose. Perhaps if i made some stickers out of them and give it to my niece to stick it on her school folders. :-P

    I think it’s hilarious! I love the love-acorns. It reminds me of my favorite song, “I’m a nut”… ;)

    You guys who complain should 1) read the artists’ insight 2) look at the large preview. On a cartoon style website they could become useful. They’re more specific, admitted, than most other icon sets but there are situation they might fit… And if not useful, at least they’re a beautiful piece of art =)

    These are interesting ….

    To me, they look kind of like chicken eggs. If the colors had been more brown and less gray it would be easier to tell that they are acorns.

    Not really they quality I would expect from Smashing.
