We’re happy to announce that we’ve partnered with Iconshock to bring our premium members a new icon set each month. Not only will these icons be of the highest quality, but they will also be designed based on what you suggest. That’s right, you get to tell us each month what type of icons you want, and Iconshock is going to create them.

If you’re unfamiliar with Iconshock, they do some amazing work. Here’s a quick look at some of their icons.

Here’s how it will work

Each month we will put up a new post, on which you will leave a comment suggesting ideas for the icon set. For example, you might suggest e-commerce, social media, etc. The most popular idea will be created. So to get things started, go ahead and leave your suggestions on this post so we can get the ball rolling on the first icon set. Even if you’re not a premium member, we would still love to hear your suggestions.

    How about a set of folder icons to help organize all our icons, fonts, images, vectors, customer documents, invoices etc.

    I think an icon set with an organic or green theme. Recycle symbols, Xed out GMOs, Al Gore, a Prius… stuff like that.

    Some auto-related icons would be cool. Cars, traffic signals, etc.

    Can’t you guys partner with another company that designs icons instead of this one? Many of their icons are not designed at smaller sizes (thus look blurry) and are just shrunk down.

    I Wouldn’t mind seeing some educational icons. Pencils, books, chalkboard… Bright colors, sketched/hand drawn. Thanks Iconshock, great idea.

    Cheers!

    I would suggest web application icons, like add, edit, delete, create page, view, search, etc.

    I ditto the educational icons, but not just elementary school or cutesy designs that you can find everywhere. Things appropriate for college.

    Web app icons would be a good choice. I know there are lots of them around the web but it doesn’t look that cool to use some overused icons in your apps/designs. Something special for WDL Premium members would be definitely appreciated.
