Tools of the Trade #4: The Noun Project

Tools of the Trade

Up until The Noun Project came along, finding high quality icons more often than not felt like searching for a needle in a haystack. I know that when I was on the hunt, I’d inevitably find myself on spam-filled sites or in a jumble of low quality stock images.

The Noun Project is an open-source project dedicated to building a global visual language we can all understand regardless of cultural and language barriers. The site welcomes icon contributions from around the world and a large portion of them are available for use under the Creative Commons license.

Search for those random icons that pop into your head. The library is massive and chances are, they have it. Need an alarm clock? A flower? A croissant? How about sunglasses? Yep, they’re covered.
