UPDATE: The zip file now includes the PNG and GIF formats of the web icons. Start downloading!

I don’t know about you, but I had enough of those fancy “web 2.0” web icons.  Sure, they get the attention of the visitors because of the stylish looks (bright colours, reflections and shadows), but do you really need these crying-for-attention icons? Baring this in mind (and the fact that I love pixelated icons) I designed my own icons for this blog, which you can now download for free.

A preview of the mini pixel icon set.

The mini-pixel icon set contains 111 icons, all inside a nicely constructed psd file (Adobe Photoshop CS4) and is completely free of charge. A few icons were taken from different iconsets (only copyright free icons) and adjusted to have a more pixelated look.  Just download it, change the colours to your liking and put it online.

If you like these icons, you could ‘Like’ this page with Facebook or tweet about it. A simple thank you would be appreciated as well. Don’t forget to post your url so I can have a look at the result.
