Today we have some very special icon sets for some of you, the real Apple lovers. If we agree that sales numbers have a meaning, we can assume: Apple lovers are not a rare species. If you feel like one, too, you will like the following article. We have five icon sets totally dedicated to Apple’s looks and styles for you. All of them can be used freely, but not all of them can be used for commercial projects as well. But why should we care about these details? We are Apple lovers, aren’t we?
Appicns is a project by Kara and Andrew McCarthy. The icons come for a price, that is becoming more and more common these days. You pay with a tweet. After having tweeted about Appicns you can download all the nice symbols as a zip package.
The Polestack icon set was created by Delta Nine, a user on deviantArt. The package contains three sets. The first set carries all the symbols in solid black while the second set contains icons styled in the looks of a good old chalkboard. The third set looks decent as well as it comes styled as if the symbols were made of wood. Each set offers the icons in the formats ICNS, PSD and PNG. All the icons are 512×512 px in size. Download and usage is free, but only for non-commercial purposes. Noone can hinder you from being inspired, though.
Wooden Slick Drives
This set contains symbols that resemble wooden harddrives. This clever idea and creation stems from Thrasos Varnava, another deviatArtist. The icons come in ICNS and PNG zipped into an archive. All symbols are 512×512 px in size. They can be used freely under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 license.
Mac USB Icons
The icons in this set come over as USB plugs for Mac computers, a cool idea, and were designed by Ömer Cetin from Turkey. The icons are enclosed in a zipped archive in the formats ICN and PNG. The symbols are sized in 256×256 px, 128×128 px, 64×64px und 32×32 px as far as the PNG is concerned. Icons in ICN format are 256×256 px only.
