Project Icon Set For Free Download


Over the last months we’ve heard numerous complaints about the lack of quality in our freebie releases. We are aware that our readers have high expectations and we try to do our best to meet them in our posts. In this post and in the following one1 we release two beautiful professional icon sets that will hopefully meet your expectations and will come in handy in your projects.

This icon set, designed by Navdeep Raj and released for Smashing Magazine and its readers, contains 18 beautiful icons related to project management. The set includes the icons address card, bar graph, calendar, clock / time, conference device, contact, documents, draft, mail, marker, milestone, notes, portfolio, project plan / gant chart, search / find, sitemap / flowchart, todo and user / resource.


The files are transparent PNGs, and vector Fireworks source files are included as well. As always, the set is completely free and may be used for any private or commercial project without any restrictions whatsoever.

    Complaining about free? Sounds like a bunch of losers to me… Maybe they should make something awesome others can use for free.

    These are great icons!

    Does “no restrictions whatsoever” mean that I can use them in a template (e.g. template for sale on themeforest)?

    (SM) Yes, of course.

    Awesome icons set. Lets see much more of these kinds of icons, and much fewer silly acorn icons. The acorn icons are cool, but I can’t even guess at a site that would need them.

    Lack of quality?

    Do readers have any clue how long even either the simplest wordpress theme or icon set takes to develop? Hours of time. And the designers are basically giving this stuff away for free.

    Seriously, start IP banning all the idiots that complain about the quality of the freebies.

    (Note: complaints about ARTICLE quality are still as valid as ever.. you guys have a reputation to uphold)

    Thanks alot..
