Whether you’re in school, at work or active in an organization or local group, chances are likely that you’ll deliver a presentation at some point. While giving an effective presentation is an important part of the process, so are the presentation’s contents. Since most of us aren’t master designers it’s helpful to tap into creative resources that will get us closer to polished and professional and farther from clipart and clumsy.

One way to add some sophistication to a presentation is by including an icon set. Well-designed icons have the ability to communicate functions and meanings, as well as emphasize key points. They are also versatile and can easily be used in a blog or website too.

Iconography is an art form and much like the fashion industry, trends have come and gone over the years. Once popular and now considered dated are icons with shadows, glossy icons and multi-dimensional icons, whereas today, minimalism is center stage with flat, colorful icons.

For students looking to include visual elements into their presentations, we’ve located several free business and office icon sets to use. All sets shared below have been deemed free for personal use by the artist. For commercial use, please contact individual artists directly to confirm their permission and usage limitations (if any).
