Abandon Skeuomorphism with these 30 Free Icon Sets in Flat Design
The modern way of emphasizing cleanliness, sharpness and objectivity in your designs is by trying to avoid all lavish stylistic choices such as textures, fake feeling of 3d dimension, illusory decorations, shiny/glossy effects and giving the flat style a shot. Being here not just since yesterday, it certainly becomes obvious that this trend not only has put down its roots but also has matured dramatically in a short period of time. The concept implies getting the most out of minimalism, harmoniously marrying Swiss style with a bright coloring and some interesting solutions (such as a long 5 o’clock shadow). It sticks to simple shapes, solid color backdrops, neat sharp typography, generous portions of whitespace, intuitive glyphs, gorgeous bright coloring in order to provide designs with an absolutely clean, crisp, brilliantly simple, properly-balanced and highly enticing look. Not only the large-scale artworks are able to gain considerable advantages from it, but basic GUI elements such as buttons, icons, and controls can benefit as well.
Want to get into this concept and populate your upcoming projects with streamlined graphics? Then start here, with our collection of free, fresh, flawlessly-executed vibrant flat style icons.

Skeuomorphism refers to a design principle in which design cues are taken from the physical world.
Heart = Favorite Phone = Call Camera = Photo Letter = Email Pencil = Compose
Every icon pack on this page is an example of skeumorphic design. You must remove the metaphor of communicating in the digital world using real world examples. It has nothing to do with the texture or lack of drop shadow. This roundup embraces skeumorphism, it does not abandon it in the slightest.
