Behind the design Link

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

All of us designers need graphics and icons for our own sites, not just for client’s sites, so we designed this icon set with that in mind. The set contains 12 big icons in 256×256 format. Both layered PSDs and transparent PNGs are included. We like to call it our ‘designer portfolio icon set’. The set includes the following icons:

  • Avatar
  • Portfolio
  • Brushes
  • Mail / Envelope
  • Color Palette
  • Colored Pencils
  • Tablet
  • Laptop Computer
  • Moleskine Notebook
  • DSLR Camera
  • Easel With Canvas
  • Coffee Cup (who said designers drink too much coffee?)
  • Thank you very much, Jon & Co.! We appreciate your efforts.

      Gotta say, these “12 very specific high-quality icons” posts are typically the lamest of Smashing’s generally amazing content.

      Thank you for these, i have been looking for some great icons to use in my new layout for my portfolio and while I have found some really good ones, none quit fit the bill. These on the other hand are exactly what designers like us need for our portfolio sites.

      Nice perspective :D

      But I won’t use them because I want everything on my portfolio to be made by myself…

    16. 23

      Really clean set but I – kind of- have some difficulties to identify myself to the “Prince in a suit” avatar.

      Amazing quality icons, except the womanized guy in the suit. Great job though!

    18. 25

      That is one very cool set of icons! And all free to use, thank you so much!
