A library of free icons

blog_image_noun-project.jpgI love icons. But sometimes it’s so hard to find good ones (especially for free). Well, here is an amazing collection of symbols called the Noun Project (I supposed because you can relate a noun to an icon through a search?).

According to their mission this project “collects, organizes and adds to the highly recognizable symbols that form the world’s visual language, so we may share them in a fun and meaningful way.”

The Noun Project pledges simple and fun icons, as well as the highest quality (.svg which is a vector format, for optimum scalability). And, yes, yes, they are all FREE.

The site is also neatly organized and so clean: on each icon detail page we can find its information, such as designers, location, date of creation, license, and… TAGS, which allow for a helpful search to take place in case you need it. All symbols are also organized in categories (about a dozen); and the site is available in 25 languages.

I couldn’t tell how many icons they have yet, but the page kept loading and loading as I scrolled down  so, it sounds good to me!
