A collection of icons in the public domain. See all the icons at the project's website.
This project, including the website, are released into the public domain.
- Design the icons to be paired with a heavy sans-serif typeface. Eventually I want to produce the icon set in other weights
- The icons should be blocked
- Avoid outlines and thin lines
- Ensure the new icon matches the existing icons. Imagine the icon set as if it were a typeface.
- Icons should be readable at 16x16
- Make its shapes as simple as neccessary
- Try and ensure the icons have an even weight
- Prefer hard corners to soft
- Prioritize icon comprehension over beauty
- Don't put text in the icon
- Don't incorporate anything not in the public domain into your icon
- Outline all strokes before submitting
- Ensure all icons are properly transparent. Fill:white is not transparent
- By convention make icon artboards 120x120
- Center icons inside artboard
