Freebie: 430 Free Icons All Around Gesture Control

This icon package is different from the others. Here, you won’t find the thousandth variant of the Wifi symbol. Instead, all of the 430 icons deal with the gesture control of modern user interfaces.

194 Megabyte Gesture Control: It Doesn’t Get Any More Detailed

Kanin Abhiromsawat, working under the alias eucalyp, is a graphic designer, and illustrator from Thailand, who’s enjoying a rather impressive follower count of about 47,000 people on Creative Market. There, he sells some huger and broader, as well as some more targeted icon collections, as well as avatars, and cartoonish character depictions. On Creative Market, you’d have to pay ten dollars for his collection of 430 gesture icons, but on Designer Mill, you can get it for free.

Don’t be irritated when Designer Mill redirects you to Gumroad. Although initially a sales platform, quite a few publishers distribute their freebies over it, too. Once you’ve arrived at Gumroad, just enter a zero in the input field “Name a fair price,” and click on “I want this.” After that, a popup opens, in which you have to enter your email address ( it doesn’t matter what kind of address). The download is started right afterward, right there. You don’t have to wait for the confirmation mail from Gumroad.

Illustrator, EPS, JPG, SVG, and PNG in Different Resolutions

Once you’ve shoved the 194 MB heavy download archive onto your local harddrive, and unzipped it, you’ll find the icon set in plenty of different flavors, all cleanly structured in folders. The folder named AI provides the widest range of options, containing all symbols as single, fully editable Adobe Illustrator files. It also includes all pictograms in the formats EPS, SVG, and JPG, as separate files each. PNG fans will find almost 4,000 files, as eucalyp has put in the effort to provide all symbols in the formats 16×16, 24×24, 32×32, 48×48, 64×64, 96×96, 128×128, 256×256, and 512×512 pixels. The package couldn’t be any more complete.

Example Icon as a PNG in 512×512 Px

As mentioned before, you won’t find an all-round icon set, but a highly specialized compilation of symbols for smartphone controls, gestures, and fingerprints. The icons are especially well suited for tutorials, as well as other explanatory texts and material.

As you can see from the included readme file, using the icons is free for both private, and commercial purposes, even customer projects. You should add this set to your designer toolbox. I’m sure you’ll need it sooner or later.
