Flavour Extended: The Ultimate Icon Set For Web Designers

A couple of months ago we released the beautiful Flavours Icon set that was designed by Oliver Twardowski1, a graphic designer from Bonn, Germany, the set aimed to help designers in their Web and user interface designs, containing 177 icons in a resolution of 48×48 pixels. In this post we release the updated version of the icon set, now with 452 icons, freely available to use in private or commercial projects.


The files are transparent PNGs, and the source file (.psd) is available for download as well (see the links below). As always, the set is completely free and may be used for any private or commercial project without any restrictions whatsoever.

Download the set for free (450+ icons)! Link



We express sincere gratitude to Oliver for his truly amazing work. 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!

Motivation behind the design Link

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

After releasing my first pixel-based iconset ‘flavour’ right here at Smashing magazine, the feedback of the readers was incredible! I received tons of emails, awesome critics and plenty of suggestions for the sequel. Back then I wrote that I wanted to create and publish a second version. So I took a little time out of icon design to get my mind clear and then started to work on the <<extended>>-package. With the ideas in my head and the great suggestions I got from you, designing Flavour <<extended>> was a blast and so much fun for me. Finally I came up with 270 new icons – many more than I would have expected initially. And I hope you like them all and use them in your web-projects.

As last time, all icons are 100% free to use for both private and commercial projects and all the .psd-sources are available to download as well. Please feel free to learn from them and make them fit your personal needs if they don’t do yet.

Have fun with the package and please feel free to support me with more feedback in the comments, via email at icons [at] or on Twitter9! Together we can even create a third part if you like one to be released!

Best wishes from Bonn, Germany,

    Tremendous work, many, many thanks!

  31. 32

    Great set – would be brilliant to have in Fireworks format for non-photoshop users. Is there a way to export psd to Fireworks (PNG) in editable layers?

  32. 33

    Nice icons but they are still far away from the real ultimate icons pack :

  33. 34

    Many thanks, Oliver, for your incredible work – it´s real generous to share this with us!

    I hope Oliver Twardowski takes a moment today to reflect on what a bad ass he is. For he is a jolly good fellow!

    i love the details like the selection of screens and credit cards :). its made for internet creatives made by a full time creative. the web20 icons, the mac influences, the sense of humor in some icons (bluescreen haha), the personality (cup – you should know that he is a coffee junkie…seriously…) and things like that are what a set makes relevant for people like us.
    well done ;)

    (SM) Yes, they are free to use.

  54. 55

    OMG, this set is amazing, thanks for doing – and sharing – this !!!

  55. 56

    Just epic. Much respect for Oliver Twardowski from my behalf. Thank you so much, I’ll scavenger through the Icons and see if I come up with any to provide more Ideas.

  61. 62

    Great! Thanks for the icons. I would like some icons that convey security for an ecommerce site. Any chance you can make some for the final release?

    Great icon’s but not as useful as the famfamfam icons.

    The problem with these kinda detailed icons is that it’s hard to make them fit in you design. 1 color or black and white icons are usually much more useful. You can adjust the colors easily. But I guess that’s what the psd’s are for :)

  73. 74

    Amazing. Thanks!

  74. 75

    thank you! from Korea

  75. 76

    Incredible – thanks for releasing these. They will come in handy. Nice work!

  77. 78

    Thank you for sharing! Very nice to use in our webdesign

  78. 79

    Awesome! I’m not sure how I got by before i found smashing…
    Thanks Smashing! and Thanks Oliver!!

  79. 80

    really great job, I appreciate your good work!
    maybe thumb up, thumb down and a heart icon can be included.

    I like the comments icon. Using it (slightly recolored) on my website. ^^

  89. 90

    Great! thanks for the hard work.
    Some says that silk still the best and the ultimate free package.
    I agree but silk is a functions icons, excellent for any dynamic web app.
    BUT these icons are great for other tasks

  90. 91

    Amazing set, Oliver.

    I typically don’t leave comments too often on design blogs but a thank you is in order for sharing your work, free of charge, and having the grace to include the PSD file.

    Very kind and great work as well. Take care.

  91. 92

    Wow. Thanks for the icons, I’ve already started using a few. Good work.

  92. 93

    the email icon is missing! i mean a simple envelope… but thanks

    I agree with Kevin G. I would also like to see a phone.

    Also a mail icon without anything in the top right corner (i.e. add, forward, alert) would be great.

    Amazing set. Thank you so much!

    def need a phone of sorts. mobile, home and office.

    thank you for this nice setup;)

  102. 103

    This is wonderful icon set! A really outstanding piece of work. :)

    I am just missing icon for server. I would like to use this icon set to draw diagrams into my thesis and server icon would be really nice.

    Perhaps there could be more server icons – one generic and other for some types of server (they could have small icon somewhere), e.g. database server, file server (with folder icon), Active Directory od LDAP server (a group-of-people icon), authentification server (with lock icon), firewall (with wall icon? (not sure)), mail server (with envelope), web server (with globe), perhaps some for streaming audio or video.
    But this is just an idea, icon for one server would be good enough :)

    Just another idea came (this is the last one, I promise :)):
    It would be nice to add icons for some office and specific network devices (such as router, switch and telephone, maybe bigger printer, copy machine or multifunction device), then this iconset could be used in another program to replace Visio for diagrams.

    I really like this icon set. Keep up doing the good work! :)
