Iconfinder png icons - Must have when you’re creating a website.
When you’re creating a website, the relevance of icons doesn’t become apparent right away. But soon enough you want people to contact you, call you, send you an email, or follow you in different social networks. All of these actions in a website are usually accompanied by icons, and there’s a reason for that.
Icons dress your website. They make it look dynamic and professional. They’re pleasant to the eye and even as importantly, they’re universal. Who doesn’t know that a little envelope means “email”? And how about a telephone receiver? Clearly it represents “Call us”.
