Adobe's free daily icons are a festive treat

Unless you've been purposefully hiding yourself away over the last few weeks like The Grinch, it can't have escaped your attention that a little celebration called Christmas is just around the corner. (How's your shopping going?) To help get you into the festive spirit, Adobe has been giving away daily sets of free seasonal animated icons.

Produced in partnership with Iconfinder (opens in new tab), the free sets of animated icons are available between Dec 10-14 as part of a giveaway called #WeekofIcons (opens in new tab). These cheerful icons are the perfect way to liven up your projects at this time of year, so be sure to download them for free while you can.

The #WeekofIcons also sees the animation experts explain the tips and tricks behind their work. Sets and tutorials are unlocked each day of the week, and if you want to access them simply head over to the #WeekofIcons page (opens in new tab). Alternatively, you can follow Adobe Illustrator on Facebook (opens in new tab) or Twitter (opens in new tab).
