Blast from the Past #2: 100 Great Free Icon Packs of 2014

No Picture

While all the design industry collects assumptions about what’s to come or is brainstorming fresh solutions to make predictions about the future of website design, we are going to take a look back, trying to get the most out of the previous year. Although “past is in the past”, however, when it comes to website design, nothing disappears without a trace. As a rule, plenty of tools, resources and viable stuff that were quite popular and pretty helpful last year, will remain sought after in the next, providing almost the same scope of benefit as before. What’s more, as practice shows, not every trend is a fad. The more consistent, strong and pervasive ones, such as Flat style still run the show and won’t go anywhere. Instead, they are bound to mature and take a more sophisticated form. Whatever there’ll be, having a bunch of professionally crafted templates that comply with current requirements and meet trends won’t hurt.

Today we continue our series with a substantial collection that covers a variety of great free icon packs. The presence of icons in user interfaces is inevitable. Whether it is a simple circular switch used in a slider, or it is a sophisticated, akin to illustration, flat icon, used for accompanying blocks of content, they are almost everywhere, clearly conveying message and providing users with full control. We simply can’t imagine any website or app without these tiny intelligible assistants.

As for trends, it seems that designers are guided by the principle of “the simpler, the better”, giving a great boost to the unrefined, but clever line style icons. Nonetheless, in our massive collection we have included not only this type of graphics but also vibrant flat, fancy hand-drawn and 3d icons, offering instruments for prototyping good-looking menus, control centers, weather widgets, social media boxes, calendars, profiles, and much more.
