Imperial Porcelain: Free Icon Set

Today we are glad to release Imperial Porcelain Icons Set, a set with 5 beautiful original icons in .png (160×160px). This set was designed by Roman Khramov1 and released especially for Smashing Magazine and its readers. It can be used in various settings — for instance, on hotel and restaurant websites, in e-commerce-sites or even on food-related blogs. [Content Care Dec/19/2016]

Behind the design Link

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

Icons were made in design of Russian imperial porcelain. We wished to perform this work with humour and in Russian traditions. The icon “partners” is especially distinguished. We tried to pay huge attention to difficult pictures and small details. The icons set is freely available for commercial and non-commercial use, without any restrictions. The set consists of 5 custom-made icons in the resolution 160×160 .png.

Thank you very much, Roman! We appreciate your efforts.

      Agreed. Another post that might possibly be useful to 0.1% of the population… and even in those cases probably shouldn’t be. But I guess “Free Icon Set” gets them tons of pageviews…

      Thanks SM.

    nice work!

  20. 21

    looks nice……

  21. 22

    very well designed…….

  22. 23

    I actually find those really interesting. You have to think a bit to get to the meaning of each icon, but when you got it, it totally makes sense. :) Very creative!

    the designers remark “The icons set is freely available for commercial and non-commercial use, without any restrictions.”

    conflicts with the readme.txt file in the zip file ie the “no restrictions” bit while in the read me file you specify that you can not give as download on your own site but rather link to SM website.

    While personally I would prefer to link to it on your site can you explain your standing on this besides not wanting other design site to basically rip off your sites content.

    Wow, nice work. I would love to design a new website for a restaurant when i saw this set of icons

    Hmm, not much to do with them.

    Other than their size, I fail to see how these function as icons. If you have to spend so much time figuring out what an icon might mean, you might as well just call them little pictures. Thumbs might be a better term.

    Does the licence allow me to change them? For example remove the vase with the flowers. I would like to use only these two cups. Thank you for your answer
