2. 100 Vector Icons
A picture is worth a 1000 words, and a perfect icon is much more valuable on your limited site estate. If only finding the perfect icons was as easy as it is to be convinced about their importance. Not to mention, it’s not just enough for the icons to perfectly communicate your intention, but they have to all perfectly match each other – both in terms of size and style. The larger the icon pack, the better your purpose is served. Try out this free 100 Vector Icon pack.
3. 26 High Resolution Wood Textures
Just like the way your home is decorated is a reflection of your personality, the design elements used on your site is a reflection of its content. Background images of wood or leafy separators for your content breathe life into your content. Especially, if your site caters to the “green” niche – be it an adventure sport like trekking, or an agricultural product or something more specific like a greenhouse or land-scaping. Here’s a bundle of 26 free, high resolution wood and tree textures to get you going.
4. Concrete Texture Pack
If wooden textures don’t fit your bill, maybe you want something more concrete? A cemented, stony or beaten look gives an edge to your site. Depending on the niche that your site falls in such textures can give a serious or a scruffy tone to your content. Such textures are perfect for a wide range of niches – from an archaeological site to one of a rock band – stony, or even granite textures create an ambience, just right. If that’s what you are looking for, give these free concrete textures a shot.
5. Vector Stars Pack
Remember that hidden joy of receiving a “star” as a token of appreciation? Why restrict joy by age? It’s so easy to spread that love on your own website. If you have a review site, or need feedback on anything, that sparkle in your stars is invaluable. Or of course, stars can be used instead of bullet points, to highlight content or to create an element of design too. Designing them though, is harder than one would think. Here’s a variety of vector star designs ready to be used as you need.
6. 15 Metallic Photoshop Gradients
A steely metallic effect – whether used as a background or as a fill-in for text, gives a site a serious look. But, plain greys run the risk of being boring. Gradients are just the solution because they give the eye a variety and get rid of the monotony. At the same time, they don’t take away from the professional tone, by adding an element of unwarranted color. The site stays steely, slick and sophisticated. Here’s a ready pack of 15 free metallic gradients to pick from.
7. 35 Thin-Line Icons
A professional website, needs non-intrusive and functional icons. To replace action words, minimalistic yet easily understandable icons keep the site clutter free. The reader stays engaged with what they’ve really come to your site for instead of being distracted by colorful, bulky icons. But, if we’ve designed or been part of designing anything, we know that simplicity doesn’t come easy. Here’s a pack of 35 free thin-line icons to make life a little simpler.
8. Flatteriffic Vector Icons
But, plain and simple isn’t necessarily what every site needs. Some sites need an extra spark, a dash of color to attract the reader’s attention and have them take an action by clicking on the said icons. Another concern is that a site needs a wide variety of icons from social media to interface and beyond. Adjusting one set of icons so that they match another set is an additional category of pain. So, what we need at times like these, is a ready mix of icons to pick and choose from. Check this set of free icons out to see if they fit your needs.
9. Smart Device Icons
Every once in a while, you need that perfect icon to convey what you have in mind. You are looking for that complete set of a niche icon pack but have to sift through hundreds of icons to find the one that is just right. Yet, you ultimately end up with an approximately close one. How you wish there were hundreds of variations available for that one icon that you want. Try this set of free smart device icons that covers this one niche thoroughly. Especially, handy for device comparison.
10. Cloud Stock Images
Cloud images must have been in use since color monitors for computers came into action. And yet, they are fresh. They still bring serenity. Also, images of clouds from different seasons and times of the day convey different moods to go with a site. They create a calming, soothing lull perfect for say a meditation website or for a site that talks about nature. The usage of cloud images is really limited by our imagination. Get your hands on these free stock images of clouds and bring bliss on your site.
