Free Geometric UI Icons With A Fresh And Futuristic Twist (100 Icons, 6 Formats)

How about an icon set that gives your UI designs just that finishing touch they need? One that stands out while keeping the design clear and legible? Vincent Le Moign161 spent two years on designing such a set, and we are very happy to feature part of it as a freebie today.

The EGO icon collection shines with its well-balanced, geometric style — perfect to make a bold statement without being obtrusive. To prepare you for nearly everything that an app or web interface could ask for, EGO covers tech- and office-themed icons, just like commerce, transport, nature, and leisure motifs. 100 icons in total that can be resized and customized to your liking (AI, EPS, SVG, Sketch, Iconjar, and PDF versions are available). Black and duo-tone blue versions are already on board when you download the set.

Insights From The Designer Link

“My new ‘EGO14’ icon collection got a radical and trendy geometric style. It’s the most personal and conceptual icon set I’ve ever created. I’ve spent months researching for inspiration, experimenting and defining a new style. It took more than 2 years to finish!

I wanted to create a very unique, bold and futuristic style that would be usable for making apps, web interfaces, and UI designs. It allows to stand out in the crowd, while keeping the interface legible and clear.

Get a taste of it with this free pack. I’m very proud to offer it exclusively to the Smashing Magazine readers. :-)”
