Freebie: World Landmark Icons (AI, EPS, PDF, PNG and PSD)

Today we’re happy to release a new Smashing freebie: 18 lovely world landmark icons such as the London Eye, the Eiffel Tower or the Empire State Building. The icons are detailed enough to show architectural elegance but without adding chaos. They’re designed to work best in both digital and print media.

Landmark Icons Excerpt1

The set contains 18 line icons in five file formats: AI, EPS, PDF, PNG and PSD. You might want to use them to spice up any travel-related website, for example. As always, the icons are available for free download and use in all private and commercial projects.

Insights from the Designer Link

“We were searching for landmark icons for reference and realized that there were either only very basic icons or too much detailed icons available. Basic icons lose architectural elegance and detailed ones add chaos. There, we sensed a need of balancing both with latest design directions. We purposefully designed to work them best on both digital and print media as they are crisp, clean and clear. It was such a great fun and day by day, as we are asked to create more, the list is growing very fast! :) You can check more icons7 as well.”

Thanks to PugMarker8 (Kapil Gonge) for sharing these icons with us — we’re very grateful for your generosity!

    I love your icons but I have an important mistake to point out. The building icon identified as the “Pantheon” much more closely resembles the Parthenon atop the Acropolis in Athens. The use of Doric columns in the icon is a giveaway as a representation of the Parthenon; also, the drum-and-dome structure of the Pantheon is missing from the icon.

    There is a famous building from ancient times called the Pantheon. It’s located in Rome. It is also a very interesting building in its own right an unusual for being almost entirely enact.

    Many thanks for this resource. This is a great job!
    Just two questions. Have you ever heard about Belgium? Do you know the Atomium?
    I’m sure you don’t. It’s sad :-D
    You drew monuments of Paris and London. It would be nice if you had just one Belgian monument to your amazing collection ;-)

    Hi Vijay and GCO,

    TajMahal is one of the wonders and certainly Atomium is also very well known.
    Along with above two, there are also several other monuments listed in our todo list and we will be soon releasing them all.

    I will update here as soon as we deliver it.

    Thanks. :)
