Where Can I Download Free Icons?

1 Comment

As you see my site is not old enough to supply high-quality and big amount of icons. Before launching my blog I always looked through for quality and free icons for my designs through the web. In this article I want to share my old experience where I downloaded icons. I present 20 icon archives and all of them can be freely used for private designs, but always don’t forget to check the licenses, because they may change the license anytime.
