Hey, folks! Last month we have been working on our very first personal project called Jolly Icons (jollyicons.com). Jolly Icons a set of 400 hand drawn vector icons containing the most essential icons for web sites and app interfaces and covering such topics as e-commerce, business, food, weather, lifestyle, science, health, medicine, media, games, social networks and more.
Jolly Icons – made for web professionals
We’ve been designing interface elements for a long time now, but it’s been always per-project task, tailored by the need of certain client. Jolly Icons is our first independent product for other web professionals who share our love for details and unique style.
Jolly Icons are vectorized, which means unlimited scalability. It’s easy to change the color or angle of any icon without any quality loss. Icons can be used with different resolutions, making them compatible with regular screens, HD and retina displays and print media. All the icons are available in five formats (.ai, .eps, .psd, .pdf, .png) and four sizes: 32×32, 48×48, 64×64 and 128x128px.
“Jolly Icons are made to bring joy”.
In a last couple of weeks Jolly Icons has been featured by Creative Market Newsletter, Specky Boy, Pixxel.co, and other industry resources. We are very excited about it and thank everybody who is helping to spread the word!
Jolly Icons Website
Along with the icons set itself we developed a simple website to put out all the information about the icons, authors and updates. It’s a responsive smooth-scroll fixed-nav one-pager featuring all the details and previews of the Jolly Icons set. The page has been featured on One Page Love, CSSWinner, CSS Awards, 1pagewebdesign and other appreciation galleries.

One of my favorite resources from the list is Skillshare. I’ve seen it launch, and the idea of the project sounded cool, but there were very few classes at the time, so I’ve forgotten about it for a while. Recently I’ve rediscovered Skillshare, now it has much more to propose to designers and illustrators. I decided to try it and signed up for an upcoming class and “watch” a few others. Many of the classes I’m considering taking are part of Skillshare’s School of Design. It has quite a few awesome ones, with great teachers. These are few upcoming courses I like:
“Illustrate a Series of Icons or Badges using Basic Geometric Shapes” by Dominic Flask
(I’ve signed up for this one)
We’ve created a set of 110 Hand-drawn Business and Office Icons that covers such topics as management, marketing, human resources, finance, strategy, business, office and so on. You can use these icons in web design and apps as well as in posters, t-shirts, brochures or any other print media. Icons are available in vector and raster formats, namely EPS, AI, PSD, PDF, PNG. Check out the set on Graphic River.
Recently I’ve finished a sequel to “Hand-drawn holiday icons set, Part 1: Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween“. This time it’s gonna be all about St.Valentine’s Day, St.Patrick’s Day, Easter and Independence Day (4th of July). The set contains 110 vector icons that will work great in web design and apps, as well as in greeting cards, posters, t-shirts, brochures or any other print media.

You see Santa Clauses everywhere these weeks before Christmas. But are they all according to corporate identity guidelines and represent brand correctly. Well now you can check. For Icon Magazine’s re-design section, Finnish design studio Bond took a mission to redesign Santa. Check the whole project on Behance.
