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.

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.
