Best icons of January 2024

Monthly highlights of inspiring icon projects curated by our team of icon designers.

Eight years ago, a cool guy started a blog about icon design. He shared timeless tips, ideas, and inspirations that became guideposts in the icon design field. Until he stopped posting on 2020. There’s been an absence of inspiring content about icon ever since.

We admire his work. We love how his passion for icon design inspired designers around the world—including us—to make beautiful icons. And we want to fill the gap he left by following in his footsteps: spreading our love for icons and inspiring anyone venturing into the world of icon design.

The cool guy we’re talking about is Justas Galaburda, a.k.a Icon Utopia. And this series of icon inspiration is our tribute to his great great work.

[Applause ensued]
