It’s surprising how effective a couple of great icons can be. They add polish to an application and really ties the room together, so to speak. And while some applications really need a consistent look-and-feel and thus, custom icons for every single course of action, a lot of the time, there’s no sense in reinventing the wheel. Especially when there are royalty-free, attractive icons available in convenient, aesthetically-homogenous packs. Mmm, icon packs.
So we present to you a round up of a few free icon packs that you can use in your web pages and applications.
Enjoy, but make sure you note the licensing attached to these sets; some are Creative Commons-Attribution or No-Commercial.
