If You Are A Designer, These Are 10 Icon Sets That You Must Have

Icons are a vital part of every design where a level of interaction is required. Without them, everything is useless because they play a vital part for helping the user understand what he can do and also, how he can do it. Imagine using a remote control with blank buttons or your iPhone with only white icons. That will be so hard that you’ll probably give up after a few minutes. Unfortunately many developers believe that an icon must be just an icon: a simple graphic image with a representative sign. Well, that’s not correct. If you want to create a great application you need to focus on design and usability so the icons must not be ignored, especially if it’s a mobile application.

In this article you will find 10 extremely good looking icon sets which must be present in everyone’s toolkit. If you are a designer then check them out and save them.
