10 years ago, icons were all about 3D and being colorful. Then the Web 2.0 effect came and shininess is added.

Right now, it is all about flat icons and, Flaticon, a website that enables us to search them quickly is pretty handy.

There are icon sets created by the developers (Freepik, which is a creative resources search engine) and also by other designers.

Flaticon Photoshop Plugin

It is possible to make a single icon search or browse them in categories or sets.

Flaticon now has a free Photoshop extension that makes searching simpler, right in the image editor we always use.

Using the extension, we don’t have to leave Photoshop and can find the icon + get it inside the canvas quickly.

UIPlayGround has created a huge set of icons that are built with only CSS(3).

There are 200 items in the set and uses only or two <span> tags depending on the complexity.

CSS3 Icons

It is possible to find icons for arrows, charts, media controls and lots of other actions.

Once an icon is clicked, the HTML-CSS is presented with the browser compatibility chart (worth checking before use).

There is probably noone that can say “no” to high-quality and free resources.

ZeroBundle is a pretty awesome and free pack of resources that designers can make use of in their projects.

The bundle includes a bunch of goodies, like business card templates, icon sets, Photoshop actions, shapes, fonts and Bootstrap templates.
