Free icon set - Quant

Icon design is something I have wanted to explore for a while. Today I'm releasing a free black and white icon set, the first of many I hope.

The Set

The set is available in gif format (filesize is smaller than png for two tone images). There are two sizes 36x36 pixels and 16x16 pixels. It is free for non commercial use and free for commercial use if you place a link back to this site.

This is a simple set to get things going. No Web 2.0 gloss here, just simple, readable iconography.

Why Quant?

Mary Quant is a British fashion designer at the forefront of the Swinging Sixties scene in the UK. She used black and white heavily, so in honour of her inspiring design this set gets her name.
