Freebie: Free Vector Web Icons (91 Icons)

Today’s freebie may be the last one for this year, but that doesn’t mean it will be the last of our freebies on Smashing Magazine — no siree! Before this year does come to an end, we are happy to present to you a fresh new Web UI set includig 91 icons created by August Interactive1 for the holiday season. The set is a collection of widely used UI elements, including volume, zoom, player, view, and download controls.

Freebie Preview2

Designed by Tomas Gajar, the set was developed using Adobe Fireworks and has been exported as a fully editable layered Photoshop file as well. The set is clean, pixel perfect, and meant to full your everyday needs for UI design.

This freebie offers vectors, all scalable, Adobe Photoshop PSDs as well as Fireworks PNGs. The icon set is completely free to use for commercial or personal applications without any restrictions. Please link to this article if you want to spread the word.

Behind the Design Link

As always, here are some insights from the designers:

“For us, the end of the year usually brings some precious time to reflect on our work and how our love for design remains relevant to the user interface design community. Our revelation this year is that clean, pixel perfect vector icons have become immensely important to our work. This means we typically spend the extra time to develop the icons that fit the specific need of the job at hand. As you can imagine, this ‘extra’ time takes considerable effort — effort that is often not a part of a clients’ original scope of work.

These holidays, we decided that the best gift we could offer our friends and colleagues is free access to some of our favorite custom UI icons. They are available in Adobe Photoshop PSDs, and for our really special friends, Fireworks PNGs. All vector, all scalable, all free to use for commercial or personal applications. Stay tuned for more in 2012!”

Thank you, Tomas Gajar and August Interactive. We appreciate your work and your good intentions!

    It’s awesome that the icon set is released also in fully editable Adobe Fireworks vector format (Fw PNG)! This makes the icons truly versatile for all kinds of screen use, web, mobile, everything!

    Great work Tomas & Smashing Mag, and big thanks! Happy holidays! :-)

    Hey, the icons are awesome. I’ll be using it in my next theme. Can I get the sky background that is displayed at the back of the icons?

    • 10

      Set background/foreground colors
      Filter, Render, Clouds
      Filter, Blur, Gaussian Blur, Radius 20 or so
      Create New layer filled with 50% gray and set it to Hard Light
      Filter, Artistic, Film Grain, Grain 1, rest 0

      Takes about 1 minute.

    Nice icons!

    A question for SM / icon author:
    Does ‘without any restrictions’ mean I can use it in a GPL-licensed package? I’d like to create a WP theme using this icon pack someday :)

  10. 13

    I will definitely use some of those nice icons. They are so nice and simple. It reminds me a clients comment: “Thats way to expensive! Why don´t you keep it simple and cheap just like commercials of Apple?” :)
