To make it short, in late 1994 we were icon addicted enough to start an icon archive. We started with 30 beautiful pixel art icons in 32x32px. Yes, that's right. All icons were shown on one static webpage. We had a good start and grew quickly, from 1996 to 2001 the site was called »Leo's Icon Archive«. In 2001 with 100,000 monthly visitors and 10,000 icons we moved to our newly created domain and called it »Icon Archive«. We had 3 major versions in our history: Version 1 was live beween 1998 and 2005 (supporting small icons up to 48x48px), Version 2 was live between 2005 and 2011 (supporting icons up to 512x512px), Version 3 (v3) is live since Feb. 2011 with everything you expect, tag based search, many filter options and support of all icon sizes and lots of other features. That's our story in a few words.

It's important for all of us to support icon artists with a donation or license purchase.
