Shout out to "The Noun Project"

The Noun Project
I recently started using thenounproject, created in 2010 as an online storehouse for “the world’s visual language,” to add pictures to my blog posts. It is a growing library of free, downloadable icons symbolizing objects and concepts that I find really useful. I wanted to give them a shout out on this blog. The storehouse has icons that help you represent the idea that you are talking about - in a presentation or in a blog post or in any other written communication.

The noun project's tag line is "Creating, Sharing and Celebrating the World's Visual Language." It started out as a kickstarter project and has become a sustaining project. here is a link to the blog post on the lessons learnt from the founders.

Contributors upload thousands of symbols for you to use. I found the search to be intuitive and very good. You can buy the icons and use them for a project. You can download and use the icons for free by following  proper attribution. Also many of the icons / symbols are public domain which you can download and use without worrying about attribution.

Try it out ...
