Every website benefits from good web icons, it’s a fact. Although iconography is currently gaining on popularity finding best icons for some niche may be still difficult.
It happens that one of our templates – to be specific the Aslom outdoors theme for WordPress – just recently started gaining on popularity, once again. Perhaps it is because of the winter is approaching quickly and people start thinking about winter sports & snow activities more often. So it made me look back when we created the theme and reminded myself the amount of hours spent in search for great outdoor icons. I wish it were so many as we can find now, perhaps we would add some nice iconography to the design concept.
Well getting to the point – we are working on new outdoor theme now and started search for the outdoor and transport icons again. I take this opportunity to share my findings with your as some of the projects are really well designed and surely worth mentioning.
Below I listed list of outdoor, travel & transport related icons perfect for your next website – both free and commercial.
1. Free Camping & Outdoor Icons
Our toplists is opened by the set of outdoor & camping related icons designed by Jason Kendall. Jason is a UI / UX designer and developer based in Little Rock, Arizona. In the matter of fact you can also visit his website www.authenticgoods.co to find more about his work and even check his humble icons shop on Graphic River here.
2. Free Transport Icons (good for outdoors & travel too)
Here is another free icons set worth your attention. These are clean, simple & besf of all free. Although the icons will work better for transport related projects, some of the icons in the set will work great with outdoors & camping designs too. Icon set was created by Graphics Bay Team
3. Outdoors Icons – Parks & Recreation
Next I would like to recommend excellent, professionally designed icons from The Warehouse team. Although commercially licensed you can get this set for only $6 USD. According to designer these icons were inspired by service signage found in parks and in recreation venues. The set includes snow, camping, weather or nature themed icons. Parks & Rec Outdoor icons can be purchased via Creative Market
Unfortunately I’m running out of time today so the best outdoors icons top list will be continued in the next post…
