Stoke icons have been made very popular by the appearance of Apple’s iOS 7 and ever since there have been the focus of icon design for every graphic designer out there. The reality is that the minimalism offered by stroke icons can’t be matched by many other design styles.
Stoke icons are for those who are unfamiliar those icons characterized by a minimal design style, usually monochrome and just an outline. They’re like a neatly designed sketch, a digitized dribble. This makes them very organic and elegant at the same time. Stroke icons have been designed since the invention of graphic design, but their popularity only grew with the huge development of Apple’s latest operating system, iOS 7.
These stoke icons have found their way into web design as well. If you take a look at the latest website designs, or even website templates, you will see an abundance of stroke icon design. And not only web design benefits from the symbolism of stroke icons.
These icons are present in every aspect of our lives. Take a look in your car, on the dashboard, or in your kitchen, on your blender or espresso machine. There’s a very good chance the functions of these machines are indicated by stroke icons. That’s how popular they are. Stroke icons are used so much because of their expressivity per surface used. Most times you will easily understand what the function you are trying to use does, just by looking at the icon that indicates it.
Below you will find a cool collection of free stroke icons for designers to use in their designs.
