The Noun Project collects, organizes and adds to the highly recognizable symbols that form the world’s visual language, so we may share them in a fun and meaningful way.
You can browse and download the collection of symbols at TheNounProject.com. The project ran a very successful Kickstarter campaign and was able to raise almost 10 times its goal amount. Other features will be coming to the site like categories, user-uploads, and the one that will make it quite functional: search.
If you find a symbol you like, you can click on it and get more details about it like who designed it and when. There’s also a link to download a zip file containing a high quality .svg file.
