The open-source sets
Some sets are part of our Creative Commons 4.0 licenses. We have open-sourced them so that everyone can design beautiful products. We will explicitly mention if a set is licensed under CC by 4.0 in the description. Other free sets aren't open-source
When you use our Open Source sets you are required to make an attribution — You must give appropriate credits and provide a link to the license. Read about the Creative Commons 4.0 license attribution.
Linkware license for other free sets
All our icons and illustrations are free to download and use straight away as low-resolution PNG files.
We also give away some vector sets for free (UI Icons Line, Kawaii Emoji, Freemoji, etc..)
You can use these assets for free in your projects, even in commercial works. All you need to do is add a link back to the Streamline Icons (www.streamlinehq.com) website.
Simple for you. Helpful for us. Deal? 🤜💥🤛
✅ This license allows you to use our free PNG or SVG icons or illustrations for commercial use, for yourself, or on behalf of a client.
✅ You can use them for an unlimited amount of projects, and any type of project: templates, website design, application design… and even logos!
How to make an attribution link for other free sets
1. Use this model for the attribution link:
Free icons from Streamline or Free illustrations from Streamline The link must be visible and readable as a hyperlink text and link to https://streamlinehq.com (If it applies to you, we recommend providing a dofollow link instead of a nofollow backlink)
2. More specific case depending on the medium:
🌐 For Web applications and websites, preferably place a link on all pages where you use our icons (you can place the link in your footer). If you have limited space you can place the link on a Credit/About page.
📱 🖥 For Desktop and Mobile applications, add the proper credit in the "About" or "Credits" page.
👍 Social Networks: Add the attribution link on the text description of the image.
📖 🎞 🌁 For other content, like books, videos, images, Tshirt, Word, Excel, PDF... Add the link anywhere in the document or product. If you promote this product or content online, please also include Free icons from Streamline or Free illustrations from Streamline in the description.
License limitations for other free sets
The free license is aimed at using our icons and illustrations in small projects (graphic design, website navigation), but they are not a way to integrate our icons as an asset that users can use in your application, like a web builder :
❌ You cannot use our icons in an application as assets available for users. For example, you cannot use them in a webpage builder, or a 'Canva style' app that allows users to integrate our icons or illustrations in a design/document.
