50 Amazing Icon Sets

There are a lot of free icon sets out there for you to use. In this collection, we rounded up a few icon sets from all over the web that you can use in your design projects.

The hundreds of featured icons here are diverse in their styles: glossy, hand-drawn, realistic, textured are among the design themes you’ll find. I hope you find a handful of icon sets that you’ll bookmark, download, and use!

Note: You should read the license of each icon set before using them. Some of the icon sets featured here are available only for personal use.

According to some of the copyright owners for some of them. YOU MAY NOT USE THEM FOR COMMERCIAL USE. Unless “your project” refers to something like your desktop wallpaper, no you can’t use them (for free, anyway).

@Dan: That would be convenient, but since all of these icons have varying licenses on distribution, we couldn’t do it. If we could, we would’ve to make it easier for you all.

Nice list, thanks!

I highly recommend the fugue icon set if you need smaller 16×16 icons (http://p.yusukekamiyamane.com/).

It’s more targeted towards desktop applications, but there are definitely some icons in there that can be useful for web sites too. With over 3,000 icons, there’s gotta be something for everyone in there.
