Free minimalist Icon Sets for Web and User Interface Design

Sun, Mar 20, 2011

Home, Resources

Icons are a primary source of assisting the visitors in the navigation of a website or any user interface design. As graphics, they enhance the user experience, and therefore, these need to be fairly minimal as well as expressive. For all designers out there, we know how handy can these be in any UI design. In this post, I have compiled some of the best reusable free minimal icons and UI elements. These resources are perfect for web interface design as well as smartphone application interface designs. Most of the kits are in either .psd or .ai format. Hopefully, these would be a great addition to your resources.

Icons are everywhere in a website and their primary purpose of guiding and giving out information to visitors is a highly important one. Other than words themselves, these little graphics within a website that tells you how you can move to the next page, cancel a transaction, checkout the cart and the likes, basically the entire navigation. In a general sense, they act as symbols that allow easier and smoother communication between the webpage and the person interacting with it.

    One is the job that would normally be done in a company, but where employees are given a flexibility
    to work pretty much from anywhere, including home, and the other type
    is a job that has sort of grown up in the internet era,
    and is almost home grown, although it can be done in an office
    as well. One can even instill bright colors
    into the website. The dish won’t taste good if some one adds up all the required ingredients but in random quantity.

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems
    of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has
    a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up
    all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any solutions to
    help prevent content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.

  24. dental provider twice Says:

    It’s awesome to visit this website and reading the views of all
    friends on the topic of this piece of writing, while I am also zealous of
    getting experience.

  25. Says:

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit
    more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.

    But think about if you added some great graphics or video clips
    to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics
    and videos, this website could definitely be one of the best in its field.

    Wonderful blog!
