Looking for long shadow style icons? Good, then you came to the right place!
Flat design has been continuing virtually unchallenged for some time now, and it’s started to develop sub-styles. One of the most popular new trends is long shadow design, and you’d have to have been living under a rock not to have seen it.
Long shadow design is often abused by trend-chasing designers who want to seem hip, but used correctly and it’s a great tool. This great icon set designed by WebIconSet.com. They provide professional and quality royalty-free stock icons for designers. You can access to over 1,000+ premium icons with an affordable subscription fee. All of the icons are perfect for websites, web applications and wireframes creation. There are 3 types of premium icons including pictograms, stock icons and mini icons, all professionally designed. You can check out their free icons too.
Look at the home icon: the long shadow works perfectly to create a path to the door, a welcoming and enticing effect. Another great use of the long shadow is on the document icon, in which the file seems to push forward into the circle; it’s positive, dynamic and reinforces the message being communicated.
Tired of the same old flat design? Everywhere you look there are people offering up flat icons; some are fabulous, but far too many are derivative. Occasionally you come across a set of icons that tries to push the boundaries of the established flat design mold.
Case in point: the 30 flat shopping featured here have a clear flat aesthetic, but these free e-commerce icons use a gloss-like two tone background and some subtle drop shadows.
Each rounded hexagon features an inner shadow that subtly adds depth; some icons — like the chart icon — look bevelled as a result, others — like the Visa icon — are reminiscent of old-school pre-digital cash registers. The icon designs themselves are simple variations on the other presently popular style, the low-poly look.
These fantastic shopping icons are flat enough to be used in flat designs, lo-fi enough to work with low-poly designs and feature enough 3D detail to work with even skeuomorphic designs. Included in the file below are PNG versions and a master PSD file.
Flat is created by Revolge, a start-up working on an social online drag & drop editor for WordPress themes (you can sign up for their beta now).
Flat design is all the rage, and trend-conscious clients are beginning to ask for redesigns to meet the current fad for all things flat.
Most commentators agree that ultimately, flat design will soften into something flatter than skeuomorphism, but less extreme than that which the current crop of flat-evangelists propose. One of the simplest ways to revamp the look of a site, without a full redesign, is to change the icons you’re using.
So we’re delighted to be able to bring you this set of free almost-flat social icons designed by Sylvain Guizard of PEPSized.com. Designed to embrace flat design without surrendering to it completely, the set is a great way to iron out your current design.
There are 90 different services represented, optimized to 15 different sizes. Each icon has a subtle gradient and border, lifting it off the page, without losing the underlying flat aesthetic.

This set of 12 flat SEO icons is perfect for adding a light-hearted and playful tone to sites.
The flat aesthetic is set off beautifully by the modern color palette and the addition of the long shadow technique is a sophisticated touch.
Playful and approachable, the icons are useful for a number of different industries: the support services life-preserver applies to any help system; the mobile marketing icon could apply to any mobile device; and the analytics, events & targeting icons are equally flexible.
A personal favorite is the link building services icon, which features the traditional ‘link’ icon being hoisted into position by a crane. It could grace the cover of many publications.
The icons were designed by Vladislav Karpov, are delivered as vector shapes in a .psd and are good for personal and commercial use, have fun!
