Wrapping up 2021

2021 has been a year of working from home, booster shots, space exploration, and NFTs. It’s also been a year where the design trends have been colorful, organic and inclusive.

Looking back, I am proud of what the Iconfinder team managed to achieve this year. In 2021, we maintained a sharp focus on the launches and features that directly impact people using our platform.

That wouldn’t have been possible without the support from you, our customers, who not only showed trust in us but also actively contributed by providing insight and feedback during video calls.

In 2021, we interviewed 30 customers, and each of those conversations helped shape our new products and improve the existing ones. I am very grateful for everyone who dedicated some time in their day to talk about icons, illustrations and Iconfinder. I would also like to thank everyone who didn’t shy away from leaving us a review on Trustpilot or G2.

Now let’s take a quick stroll through all the new stuff we brought you in 2021.

Launch of illustrations

Iconfinder is not just about icons anymore. In the summer of 2021, we added illustrations to our repertoire. With a focus on high quality and large style families, the collection is steadily growing, and we currently have 20k+ illustrations.

In August, we branched out to illustrations

New color editor

To make editing colors as easy as possible, we made a brand new color editor with which you can change colors in a matter of clicks. Plus, you can save colors and previous edits for future use.

Changing colors is easy and fun with the new editor

3D illustrations

Now you can find all the beautiful 3D illustrations under their own tab. This collection keeps on growing actively, and we’re loving it.

A new section for 3D illustrations was launched in December 2021

6 million assets

We’ve just passed another million benchmark. We are slowly but steadily climbing to the lucky 7 while also imposing even stricter requirements for content quality.

Improvements to Pro subscriptions

Credit refill

This one is great for all that have occasional need for more assets than usual. If you spend all your credits and need more, you can purchase additional ones without having to upgrade the plan.

Team invite link

To share the subscription with your team members, you no longer have to invite them one by one. Just send them a unique link, and ta-daa, you are sharing one plan.

PayPal subscriptions

We enabled PayPal payments for subscription plans at the beginning of the year, so you no longer need a credit card to sign up.

What to expect in 2022

We are rolling our sleeves for a productive year ahead. Here are just some of the items we are planning to focus on in 2022:

  • Better ways to connect with creators
  • Better team collaboration features
  • Subscription plans for enterprise-size companies
  • Growing our collection of products

If you want to keep up to date on what we have in store for you in the following year, make sure to subscribe to our newsletter.

Wishing you a healthy and fantastic start of 2022!
