600 Gorgeous Black & White PNG Icons [Freebie]

Today we are pleased to feature Gemicon, a set of over 600 original high-quality icons in resolutions of 16 × 16, 32 × 32 and 64 × 64 pixels. This set has been designed by Turqois1 and is being released to the design community.


Description Link

The 40 PNG icons are of an engineering sketch style and include all common items in web or app design. The resolution of the icons is 256×256 pixels. The icons are currently only available in black and white. Coloured versions might be coming soon.

Download The Icon Set For Free! Link

You can use the set for all of your projects for free and without any restrictions. You may freely use it for both your private and commercial projects, including software, online services, templates and themes.

Behind The Design Link

As always, here is some insight from the designers themselves:

“Hello. Our names are Andy and Budi. We currently live in the “City of Heroes,” Surabaya, Indonesia.

Our motivation for creating Gemicon was to share with and contribute to the design community. It was around early November 2012 when we started to think of what the best way was that we could share with the community. At the time, we found that good-quality and free icon sets were still not being shared a lot, so we started sketching out icons on paper to begin the process.

We started with 50 to 60 icons, but we felt that wasn’t good enough for the community. Because we always want to finish any project as soon as possible but with a high quality at the same time, we were able to finish Gemicon in just three weeks.

We also tried to fit some unique icons into Gemicon with some of the food, beverage and transportation icons — the transportation icon was the most challenging one we created. When we were happy with the result, we started to share it on Dribbble and chose Christmas day to give it as a “gift” to the community that we love.

Feel free to get in touch with us on Twitter7 or Facebook, and see what we’re working on on Dribbble, or shoot us an email8.”

Thank you very much, Turqois! We really appreciate your effort.

    They are very nice icons but to promote them with 600+ icons is a little exaggerated. The set has 210 icons in three sizes plus the PSD files.

    Very nice recreation / restaurants related set. Thanks!

    Could be logical to add “(no) smoking”, “hotel / restaurant” (or “building”), “child / children” and maybe “beach”, “ski”, “park” icons. Also it’s funny to see stereo cassette there – can’t imagine any situation / function to use it for.
