30 Adventurous Space To Earth Icons [Freebie]

Have you ever dreamt of exploring the deep sea and getting up close to its fascinating, weird creatures? Or maybe you’ve dreamt of boarding a spacecraft to experience the beauty of our planet from above? The desire to leave the beaten tracks and explore unfamiliar terrain is human nature.

Space To Earth Icons1

(Full preview1412102)

To celebrate mankind’s urge to explore, the creative folks at Vexels163 created a set of 30 adventurous icons that take you on a journey from the ground of the sea right up to outer space4. The set offers all the building blocks you’ll need to create your own little universe and become an explorer yourself: Cute jellyfish, strange deep-sea fellows, a submarine, trees, a helicopter, hot air balloons, satellites, planets, meteors, and much more. Nature and technology beautifully united — I’m sure you’ll agree.

Insights From The Designers Link

“Nature is always inspiring. Whether it’s space, with its stars and Sun, or our home planet with its waterfalls and mountains, our design team is always motivated by what surrounds us. And that includes technology. From planes to submarines, we can explore our world with their help. We wanted to create a freebie that showed it so we made this elements set, called From Space to Earth.

It contains elements and icons with everything from rockets and asteroids to planes, fishes and even some dinosaur bones. We hope you get inspired to create some art of your own. Grab everything you need from this freebie and start creating!”

      Hi Garry, Virginia here from Vexels.
      Attribution is required, yes. Since we designed this freebie exclusively for Smashing Magazine, we feel the redistribution should still include a link to this page so the download is made from here. I hope this answers your question!

      Garry, thanks for pointing out (and thank you Virginia for clarifying!) :-)
