Today we are pleased to feature Smallicons, a set of 54 flat small icons. If you are looking for a way to make your design fresh and expressive, then this freebie is the answer. The set was created and designed by Nick Frost1 and Greg Lapin2 of Smallicons. [Links checked February/09/2017]
Description And Features Link
The small icons were made using Photoshop vector shapes and are available in different formats, giving you maximum convenience and saving you time for more creative tasks. The PNG files come in two dimensions (32 × 32 and 64 × 64 pixels). The set also includes swatch files, so that you can select colors in Photoshop using the color swatches palette. Smallicons is released under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported5 licence, freely available for personal and commercial projects.
Here’s what you’ll get:
- PSD file with 32- and 64-pixel versions;
- Ready-to-use PNG files in 32- and 64-pixel versions (
@2xsizes are also included with both versions, for making Retina-ready apps and interfaces);
- SVG vector source files;
- Photoshop swatches files.
Smallicons is a fully scalable set.
Nothing’s easier than customizing Smallicons with the embedded color swatches!

As usual, a word from the designers themselves:
When you start to design in a flat style, it can be hard to stop — harder than you think! That is exactly what happened to us when we designed the icons for Smallicons. It turned into a big project, which we hope will help designers and other professionals whose work is based on graphics one way or another.
Thank you, dear Nick and Greg, for creating this beautiful set! We appreciate your work and efforts!
