30 Minimalistic Icon Sets

Minimalism is all the rage in web design at the moment. For good reason too, with the amount of information that is often required of a website, they can get cluttered up pretty quickly if you don’t keep a firm hand on the design. By cutting things back to a minimum, you can create a clear, bold site that is a pleasure to the eye and, more importantly, easy to navigate.

Icons are the kinds of things that can quickly clutter up a website, or spoil a stripped-back aesthetic. Fortunately, more and more designers are creating simple, minimalist icon sets that are perfect for your next minimal web project.

    I would also recommend FontAwesome for a good selection of vector icons.
