Helveticons

If you’re like me, you’re always on the lookout for cool icon sets. Helveticons are a set of royalty-free vector icons and symbols based on the Helvetica Bold typeface. I love the clean lines and retro feel of this set, and because they’re in vector format, you can resize, modify, or combine them without loss of clarity or resolution. My favorite is the Radio icon, represented as an old-school broadcast tower.

It actually took me a minute to figure out how to see the preview page: mouse-over the large “245” graphic in the upper right, and a “Preview Icons” link will appear beneath it.

My inner “usability geek” thinks that should always be visible, along with the purchase link, rather than obscured beneath a graphic that isn’t obviously an active hotspot, but I digress.
