In this case study we will showcase how new, custom-made icons were created to refresh the UI of Adept, an engineering document management product by Synergis Software. Adept helps to find, manage, and secure access to enterprise engineering and related documentation.
Iconfinder has always relied on prototyping when building our own platform. We also believe that the icons we provide help many web and app designers to become quicker and more efficient in creating mockups and prototypes.
Hooray! Today we hit a big milestone. We finally reached one million icons. We have spent 8 years getting to 500,000 icons in 2015. But in a year we have now doubled in size. Currently, around 50,000 new icons are added to Iconfinder per month.
Icon designers have submitted over 500,000 icons to the marketplace in the past year alone. That is an average of about 10,000 icons per week. While reviewing this many icons, we often spot trends and changes in that occur overall but also changes and improvements in the icon designs from each designer.
