Becoming a skilled artisan for the web is a tough goal. Somebody who can build layouts may not be so great at designing text effects or icons. Thankfully the open source movement provides a lot of support for web designers who need resources for project work.

I’ve cataloged a total of 25 outstanding icon sets for download. Each set is completely free and they’re all linked to an original Dribbble shot. Designers who release their stuff on Dribbble don’t often make it a big deal – so it’s tough to find these links without searching extensively on the website. I hope these icons can prove useful in future web projects.

  • We usually expect an icon set to have 100s of items and be complete with all the major elements.

    However, sometimes, smaller sets can be handy too.. just like Coucou Icons.

    They are available in .PSD, .AI, .EPS, + .PNG files and free to use in personal and commercial projects.

    The usage of SVG is gaining traction, thanks to its browser support, being scalable and open to manipulation.

    IconMelon is a library of free SVG icons that are created by different designers.

    It allows us to select items from each set and create a new set for download which makes sure we only insert the icons to be used on our web pages and end up in a smaller file size.

    Also, there is an option to add effects like shadow, blur or emboss to the icons.
