No more excuses – create your own icon set today!

No more excuses – create your own icon set today!

You like icon design, don’t you? Those cute little thingies. Once you notice them, you instantly know what it should mean and this brings a smile to your face. You browse through Dribbble and Behance every day, pinning and favoriting icons you’ve loved the most. But you’re not making our own icons yet. Wait, what? Why? I’ve stopped counting how many times I’ve been asked about how to start and the tools one can use. All those questions and doubts instead of simply starting to actually work on icons! Let this be the wake-up call for you. This time rather than fantasizing about that awesome icon set you will make one day – create it this instant! (Right after you are done reading this article, of course.) If you’re feeling stuck, the first thing I’d recommend doing is checking out my Free Icon Design Guide. There I’ve put everything you need to know about icon design to get started. May you still have questions, keeping reading! I’ve collected a few questions that people have been asking me throughout the years and tried to answer them shortly but comprehensively. Do you see the question that has been eating you away and stopping you from creating your own icon sets? What Program Should I use? Photoshop, Illustrator, Sketch – which one to choose? Which of them is better for icon design? Truth is, it doesn’t matter. Choose whichever you know best, and create killer icon sets in it. Personally, I’m using Adobe Illustrator, but if you know nothing about the Illustrator’s workflow, you won’t be able to create icons there, right?...
Best Icons of the Year 2017

Best Icons of the Year 2017

I’ve collected an enormous number of amazing icons that could easily pass as the best icons of the year 2017. When I first came up with this idea, I thought this would be absolutely amazing! But soon I realized what a huge responsibility it actually is! In fact, it even crippled me, and I was unable to take action. However, one thing that I learned over the years is that no doubts should ever stop you. So I managed to pick myself up and started working on the list of the best icons of the year 2017. How did I organize this collection? It’s all simpler than it seems. As you surely have noticed, I’ve been collecting the best icons of the month for quite a while. Since I’m kind of addicted to Dribbble, spending way too much time there, every now and then I stumble upon a great icon set and immediately put it into that month’s ‘best of’ selection. This way little by little I’ve already built this gigantic warehouse of fantastic icons. You can take a look at all of them here. This time I just went through my collection and picked the ones that got the most attention, shares, and likes, and arranged them into one huge list that you are looking at now — The Best Icons of the Year 2017. Am I qualified to make a list like this and all the more so — call it the best icons of the year? Probably not. So don’t take it too seriously and consider it my personal best icons of the year 2017. Look...
