Examples of Clean and Colorful Icon Set Designs
Oct 13th, 2017
The icon design industry is fast-paced and constantly evolving. From skeuomorphic styles and encircled icons, to line icons and gradient colors, icon design is shifting all the time. Currently we are seeing a further trend toward glyph icons with little-to-no visual styling. This means that there are two factors allowing them to stand out and differentiate as high quality icon designs. The first is the glyph shape itself. The second is the colors applied to these glyphs. A combination of successfully combining these two aspects can lead to some incredibly clean and polished icon sets.
In this article, we are going to round up a selection of some of the finest clean and colorful icon set designs for your inspiration.
