On the doorstep of 2,000,000 icons

In just a couple of days, we will have 2,000,000 icons available on Iconfinder marketplace. That’s practically one icon per every single person living in the metropolitan area of Austin! It took us nine years to add the first million, and just one more year to double up.

A thank you note to the Iconfinder community

We wouldn’t be reaching this milestone if not for our contributing designers delivering top-notch icons every day. As of today, there are 2,111 icon designers selling icons on Iconfinder. We would like to thank each and every one of YOU.

Over the years, we have witnessed not only the changing trends but also the massive growth of talent in icon design industry. We heard stories of people leaving corporate jobs to design icons full-time, people financing their side-businesses from the sales of stock icons, people managing icon design teams and many more. We also made a bunch of friends along the way, whom we are very delighted to have. After all these years we feel proud about major design companies seeing us as a to-go place for anything icon-related.

Tweeting contest

To celebrate the milestone of 2 million icons, we invite everyone to participate in our quick and fun Twitter contest. We have an instant Polaroid printer, a beautiful backpack, a classy French press, a gift card from A List Apart and a Creative Cloud connected Moleskine to give away! All it takes to enter the contest is to retweet one of our campaign tweets.

Whether you are a long-time Iconfinder user, a contributing designer, or have never heard of Iconfinder, feel free to participate and be part of our celebration. Who knows, maybe you will become one of our five lucky winners?

What’s next?

With icon submissions growing exponentially we are capable of raising our quality standards even higher. We are reviewing each submitted icon set manually and are continually providing feedback and tips for the icon sets that need improvement.

With so many icons in our library, we are working hard to improve our search engine algorithms and make sure everyone finds that one perfect icon they are looking for. Stay tuned for more updates on that!

With love,
The Iconfinder Team
