9 Free, Fresh High Quality Icon Sets for Your Website

Great icons are hard to come by

For anyone who dabbles in tweaking their website or who is a full on web developer knows that high quality icons for their site and it can take endless hours filtering through junk to find a suitable match. We thought we’d help you out and show you a few high quality icon sets that have recently been released, all of which we recommend for your site. Alternatively, you can use icons in your print marketing to make them more modern rather than relying on old school clip art (which you shouldn’t be doing anyhow)! Some of these are grungy, some are shiny, all are modern and might be just what you’re looking for to match the feel of your site.

For the following sets, they come in groups and you’ll download the entire set (which will give you tons of other great icons, even if you’re only looking for one) by clicking on each image below:

    Ha ha, Smashing Magazine.

    Beautiful icons you’ve shared Lani.

    Lani, if you ever see any horse/Cowboy icons …. you know where to find me.

    Hi Lani, thanks for the cool icon list. If there were any way I could get away with it, I’d use that jazzy little BMW Isetta icon (from the first set on this post) on my website.
