A Showcase of Beautiful Icon Sets for Web Developers

A great design is all in the details – the icons used in a web app need to explain perfectly what the feature does, as well as suit the entire aesthetic of the site applies to a wide spectrum, from ecommerce web design, to flash photography sites. Sharing buttons need to stand out, but also be in keeping with the site’s overall look and feel. It’s these small details that can make or break a design, and it’s surprisingly important to get them right.

We’ve selected a collection of beautifully designed icons for your next web project, all freely available to download and created by some of the most talented web designers out there.
