Free download: Modern long shadow icons

By WebdesignerDepot Staff | Freebies | Aug 20, 2013

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.

Particularly successful — in addition to the home and document icons — are the cloud, which mimics the shade cast by clouds; the camera, which manages a charming vintage feel; and the settings on which the long shadow creates a strong sculptural form.

As a set of icons they provide a consistent, positive message. The use of the popular circular icon format together with the flat design color scheme mean they’ll fit well with almost any flat design project.

All of the icons are designed using vector shapes in Photoshop, so you can scale them to any size without losing quality.

The whole set is free for personal and commercial use, download the files below the preview:

    The receptiveness is surprisingly surprisingly not as annoying as I thought. Just kidding.
