Exclusive: Free Cloud Computing Icons

Cloud Computing Icons

Brusheezy has made this set of 36 cloud computing icons available for free, exclusively for Graphic Mac readers. Not only are these icons provided in PNG and PSD format, but fully editable vector format.

Brusheezy offers a host of design resources, focusing primarily on Photoshop brushes, patterns and textures. Lately, they’ve added PSDs to the mix. If the site looks familiar, it’s because I’ve shared artwork in the past from their companion site Vecteezy.
