This is our first installment, with six of the most talented and box office grossing directors of all time. The set comes in ICO, ICNS and PNG formats, and includes, George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Spike Lee, Alfred Hitchcock, Tim Burton, and James Cameron. Which one is you’re favorite?

The ultimate collection of free movie icon sets

We are very proud we have assembled here a list with the most extraordinary icons you can find on the net. We have only chosen the best of the best. From The Exorcist to The Polar Express, you will find the most rare, amazing and useful movie themed icons in the entire web. Look no further. As the Oscars come near, this is the best way to fuel our expectations. Enjoy!

1. Cinema Sigma Style

This is truly a one of a kind icon set, because each icon comes with 17 add-ons, each one made in the beautiful Iconshock trademark style “sigma”

2. The Addams Family
Silvia Selvi

The Addams Familiy-icons-iconshock
Ta ra ra ran! Ta ra ra ran! This was my favorite tv show as a child. And I have to confess I had a thing for Morticia. Genius icon set by this very talented artist form Italy.

3. Kung Fu Panda
Mhmood Zaidan

This set just has one icon, but it’s full of detail and identical to the movie character. It could easily be an official icon from the Dreamworks marketing campaign. Excellent.

4. Transformers
Pf Yuan

I think both transformer movies were really, really bad, but these icons are the exact opposite! A shame only Optimus Prime is featured.

5. The Bourne Ultimatum
Nic Works

Each Icon is a perfect key feature of the movie. Didn’t expect to find an icon set of this movie. I’m not a fan of the series I must say, but I do like this set very much.

6. Kill Bill
David Lanham

Perfect! This is one of the best Icon Sets ever! The complete set features many more icons besides these, including the Kaboom cereal! Check the detail at the smaller sizes. This is just genius.

Earthquake prevention icon set

Tragedies like the one that Haiti is suffering remind us of how fragile our life is, and the importance of prevention. Anything can happen to anyone, anytime. This is a small contribution to make us remember the importance of being prepared. We hope you can share them with the people you know.

100 most creative folder icon sets

Personally, I think folder icons are the most useful of all the icon sets you can think of. Designing a good folder set requires special taste and inventivity, since they are so embedded in your operating system, and so continuously clicked, that a poor design can be obtrusive and disfigure your computer entirely. Contrary to the movie themed icon list I made last week, were the selection was difficult due to scarce sources, finding folder icons was like shooting fish in a barrel. (not that I ever shot a fish. Nor a barrel. In fact I haven’t shot anything in my life outside Halo)

The difficult part was to debug the humongous quantity of low fi stuff. I think I saw almost 500 folder icon sets for three straight days to get down to a hundred, and if I didn’t have a deadline, I would have probably continued this list to 200. I am really proud of this selection, being my longest top list so far, and really expect you readers out there to dig your icon hungry fangs in each set.

Rejoice, this is the longest list of this particular kind of icon sets on the whole web till date. (hope Smashing magazine isn’t reading)

So, Without further ado… Enjoy!

What are you people going to do for Halloween? One thing I loved to do when I was a child was to watch with my friends horror films until midnight. I remember that for me, the Exorcist was the freakiest of all, it spooked me so much that still after all these years Regan’s eyes still give me the chills.

To honor all those wonderful horror films that are delighted by thousands of people on this night, Iconshock wanted to give you this treat. Five icons of the most scary and creepy films of all time. What are your top 5 horror films?

100 Best hardware and gadget icon sets on the net

Ok friends, now it’s four in a row. Hurray for me! Four top 100 lists in a month, only one away to make the 500 straight. I had a very good time assembling this list in particular, specially because I discovered the work of “starvingartist” with his antiseptic video game system icon set, which I truly believe is one of the best icon sets I’ve reviewed on the blog ever. There are many other gems as well, as I featured the works of well known artists and regulars like Hans Christian Løberg, Booby Perux and Javier Ocasio. The most valuable lesson I’ve learned researching for these large lists, is that no matter your field, you can never consider yourself the best of your trade. You can feel deep inside that you are good, but never be so foolish to think there is no one better than yourself. It’s so obvious that there is so many people creating stuff in this world that you will be surprised every time you take a peek at what’s happening out there. Get inspired, sit back, and enjoy!
