Becoming a skilled artisan for the web is a tough goal. Somebody who can build layouts may not be so great at designing text effects or icons. Thankfully the open source movement provides a lot of support for web designers who need resources for project work.
I’ve cataloged a total of 25 outstanding icon sets for download. Each set is completely free and they’re all linked to an original Dribbble shot. Designers who release their stuff on Dribbble don’t often make it a big deal – so it’s tough to find these links without searching extensively on the website. I hope these icons can prove useful in future web projects.

We usually expect an icon set to have 100s of items and be complete with all the major elements.
However, sometimes, smaller sets can be handy too.. just like Coucou Icons.
The icon set consists of 64 free items which are fun, without a specific-focus but all crafted beautifully.
They are available in .PSD, .AI, .EPS, + .PNG files and free to use in personal and commercial projects.
Thematic design resources are great when it comes to working on projects that match with those themes.
Oceanica is a free icon set with a nautical theme and has 120 unique items related to it.
The set is in vector (.AI), has a slick-yet-simplistic design (mostly line art) and free to use in personal or commercial projects.
Although there are many free icons around, there is really never “much of them” as every new one is an option to find the best that matches what we are looking for.
SM-Artists has created a slick and free weather icon set that is flat and mono-colored.
The set has 42 vector items which are available for Photoshop + Illustrator.
Items included cover most of the weather-related scenarios, temperature and more.
IKONS is a lovely and free vector icon set that is created by the designer Piotr Kwiatkowski.
There are 264 items in the set that are flat, mono-colored and consistent with each other.
Icons are available in multiple vector formats like SVG, AI, ESP, PSD, CSH and also in PNG (32px, 64px, 128px).
They include items of actions, media controls, social networks and can be used in personal + commercial projects.
