Blog / Freebie Of The Week / Introducing “Softies,” Our Most Colorful And Playful Icon Set Yet

After the recent release of our flat icons, we decided to focus our next creation on something more colorful, playful and detailed. This icon set, appropriately titled “Softies,” includes 44 beautiful and fun icons. The soft and bright style of these icons is sure to add some color to your website, and we’ve made them pixel perfect at 64px, 128px, and 256px. The package includes PNG images of all three sizes, as well as the original PSD files for each icon so that designers can easily modify them to suite their project’s needs. Did I mention that they are completely free? ๐Ÿ™‚

These icons are not only price-free, they are also restriction-free. They have been licensed under the GPL, which means that anyone is free to use them for their personal or commercial projects! This is the same license that WordPress is packaged under, which makes these icons especially useful for theme and plugin developers.

Using These Icons In Our Themes

In case you were wondering how you might put these icons to use, here are some examples of how they might be used in our Trim and Nimble themes. A lot of our themes come with blurbs on the homepage where icons can be added to accentuate your message. If you have been struggling to find the perfect icon to use, then look no further!

  11. Wow!!! Freakin’ AWESOME Icon set!!!
    Any chance of making an icon set for those of us in the photography niche? It’s so hard to find good icons of cameras, lenses and photo related stuff. Pretty please.

    • Thanks, David!

      We definitely intend to get around to many more icon sets. We will eventually create niche add ons to our current collection of icon packs for consistency. We will keep a photography theme in mind! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Is it just me or this icon set looks striking familiar with the one we originally created on PixelKit? Don’t know who did this set for you but it’s clearly inspired (to put it respectfully) from that icon set called: 5 Oโ€™clock Shades.

  12. These are really beautiful and contemporary. While the trend may be FLAT, I feel that dimensionalization as clean and artful as this has a place and, in fact, is a better choice. If you could make the vector for this available, I’d be happy to spin-off a more neutral set to share. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Oooooo … I see we can edit these! ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Very nice. Thanks for the freebie.

  58. Awesome collection thank you very much ๐Ÿ™‚

  59. Amazing icons, thank you very much!

  60. This could look too much like some icon set I’ve seen, which is flat and has color but looks dull. This set uses dull colors too (sorry) but it’s very pleasing in how the details have been brushed up. This has something making me think of the Faience icon set also. So the problem in the other set was not the color, just the overall result.
    Thank you for making this set, this is a good contribution to the world of flat design.

  61. Love it!

  62. Awesome collection of icons.

  63. Great icons ! Can’t wait to use them.

    Thanks for that.

  64. Thanks a lot. so generous of you.

  65. Great!!!

  66. When some one searches for his vital thing, thus he/she needs to be available that in detail, therefore that thing is maintained over here.

  67. Love the icons!! However for the life of me I can’t figure out how to edit them… they seem to just be smart objects and I can’t figure out how to get them into a vector?
