search cancel – Free Icons For Your Projects

DefaultIcon.comThe Default Icon website will come to the rescue if you are facing a design task and you need a set of icons to go with it in a direct (and cost-effective) way. This site stands as a true repository of icons that you can use at no cost when developing applications of every kind, and for every platform whatsoever – mobile phones, iPads… everything is supported because the resolution of the icons is 1-bit.


The actual icons are downloadable in .eps, .png and .gif format. They come in black and white, and when I checked out the site the database boasted 84 icons already. And an update (increasing the number of featured icons) was imminent, too.

The only requisite for using these icons is that you have to give credit to InteractiveMania whenever you use any of them. That is, they are made available under a Creative Commons Attribution-No Derivative Works license. Also, you must not modify the actual icons when you use them – they have to remain the way they are. In Their Own Words

“Default Icon is a repository of free icons in their simplest form. Can be used even on portable devices (iPhone, iPad, android compatible devices etc) with minimum capabilites as the resolution is 1-bit and fully customizable as there is an eps version present. Available for download in .eps, .png, .gif formats, in black and white colors.”

Why It Might Be A Killer

It offers anybody a quick way to have an elegant front end, and at no cost whatsoever.
