If you remember, in my first post, I explained why I loved icon sets and told you what to look for in icons . . . particularly those that are free. In the next post, I gave you a heads-up on animal icons that are real nice and real cute. Continuing the series on icons that I love, today, I have for you two sets that are directed toward businesses and corporate uses.
In this icon set, there are 10 icons that are primarily directed toward business and money. As you can see from the screen capture to the right, you can download the images individually for Windows and Buddy icons or as PNGs in 2 sizes. I recommend the PNGs in both sizes, because it gives you options when you go to use them in your web pages, presentations or word processing documents. Admittedly, there are a couple of unusual and atypical business images in the set, including a casino roulette wheel. Go figure?
When you click on any of these images, they will open into a new browser window with the image sitting all alone by itself. To download them, all you need to do is right click (control+click on a Mac) and then choose “Save image as…”

This second set of icons are courtesy of Smashing Magazine, which always and I’m mean always has good freebies. (The theme I’m using right now for my blog is courtesy of Smashing Mag.) This set was designed by Navdeep Raj and includes 18 images that are targeted toward project management, including icons for project milestones, contacts, clocks and timetracking, charts, and communications. A good variety that would work well business presentations, such as project updates or even with tutorials for project management software and processes. The zipped files comes with all 18 images and the original Fireworks files in PNG format (which is Fireworks native format). The the original files in there, the licensing is a basic “have at it” mentality. You can use them for personal or commercial projects, and you can edit the originals.
