Ecommerce Design Tips: Using High Quality Icons

by C Douglass on February 15, 2010


Professional looking icons can be another way to enhance your ecommerce site’s design and add a look of credibility to your site. Creating your own icons can be extremely time consuming and difficult even for many graphic design professionals. Luckily there are many resources on the web offering high quality design icons that you can use on your site. Many are available for free or for a small fee.

One great example is the popular Silk Icon set available for free at famfamfam.com. This comprehensive set has a wide range of over 700 icons that can provide style and clarity for everything from simple web sites to advanced applications. There are a few other high quality icons sets offered on the site as well.
