If you’re creating a web site or app that you want visitors to enjoy using, you’ll almost certainly want to spend a big chunk of your time on improving the user experience as much as possible. From a design point of view, making the site look aesthetically pleasing is one part of this, but helping users navigate through the site efficiently and easily, and perform actions (in the case of a web app) is also a huge part of making a site fun, simple and pleasant to use. By using icons that are self-explanatory, clear & easy to see and that fit in well with your site’s design, you can help to improve the way people use your site and make it a nicer experience overall.
To help you out, we’ve put together a list of the top 10 icon sets for developers and designers, so you can improve the look and feel of your site or app. These icon sets are all free to use for personal and commercial projects, although please do check the terms and conditions to be absolutely certain.
