I’m headed to Brooklyn for Nearly Impossible, where I’ll be doing one-on-one sessions as part of the conference’s Expert Lab. It should be a great time, and I’m sure I’ll learn lots of stuff that will be helpful for my clients ongoing.
Since I’m giving away something (consultation time) to some of the conference attendees, I thought it’d be a good day to also give away something to everyone who reads this blog. I’ve never done a freebie that I didn’t create, but there’s a first time for everything (as they say).
I was recently approached by Vecteezy, which is a sort of an exchange for vector art and graphics, with the opportunity to give away an exclusive icon set. I’m pretty into vectors, especially for icons, since they scale so cleanly across various device resolutions. I’ve been advising all the designers I work with to make sure to use vectors for icons and other similar graphics, so this seemed like a great fit. I picked an infographic set:
I love the color-block styling, and feel like these icons would be useful on business sites or to spice up informational blog posts (or to build a really sweet annual report-style document). Some of them are so graphically interesting that they could just be used decoratively as well (the pinwheel and the gear in the second to last row are calling to me).
This is an exclusive download, it’s distributed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License, and the download file includes .ai, .eps, and .psd file formats.
You can download the files here, and also check out all the other free infographic vector sets available at Vecteezy (among lots of other great icon sets and vector graphics). Enjoy!
