Fresh Icon Sets To Improve Your Designs
A predefined icon set collection is like a resource reservoir for graphic designers which can be used to improve the appearance of the designs they’re working on. Nevertheless, these icons should be seen as an inspiration and we encourage you all to try creating your own icons for designing portfolios, blogs, corporate designs, magazines and Web applications.
Tutorials on how to create your own icons (almost everything is possible!) are available after the jump. Here, all icon sets are free. Nevertheless, please be sure to read the license agreements carefully before using all icons since this can change from time to time. Enjoy!
