    Beautiful collection, pitty you don’t link the images to the designers who crafted them.

  2. Jules Stoop says:

    Great collection! But you seem to be missing out on the work of one particularly nice (former) design-company: http://www.madebysofa.com/#design

    Some of the icons you showcase even seem to be inspired by Sofa’s work (compare Analog with Checkout, for instance):

    Those are NOT icons. They are excellent ILLUSTRATIONS.

  12. francesca says:

    most of these are really beautiful images but only 3 or 4 are icons

  13. Diego says:

    It is a nice collection indeed, but they are not icons, they are too complex for an icon. As Flavio said “They are excellent illustrations”. Of course, they can work as an icon if a simplified version is made. :)

  14. Aimup apps says:

    Nice collection thanks!

  15. Michael says:

    These are illustrations not icons. An icon is a diminutive graphics meant to represent a piece of software, idea or a functionality. With few exceptions these are highly detailed illustrations which would make impractical icons because they are so detailed. Shrink them all down to 35×35 p and see what I mean.
