2019 is about to end shortly! The world is gearing up to celebrate Christmas and welcome 2020. 2019 was a pretty exciting year for Iconscout. Many goals have been reached and we will aim to continue doing so in 2020. Let’s rewind the amazing year we have and see our milestones and landmarks.
Some of the quick stats are as follows:
Crossing 2 Million+ Mark
This year we crossed an iconic landmark of reaching 2 Million+ design resources that includes 1.5M+ icons, 10K+ illustrations, and 500K+ stock photos. This makes Iconscout the world’s fastest-growing design resources marketplace.
We’re adding approximately 1,200 design resources every day. We’re thankful to our 1000+ contributors for their continued support and motivation.

This year we have collaborated with several international brands that will support us financially, for re-distribution, as well as reach out to students to help them with creative content.
Visual China Group
Last year we collaborated with VCG and this year we started sharing Iconscout resources with their clients, which will improve the scope and earnings of our contributors in 2020.
We’ve also partnered for redistribution of Iconscout items with their global audience. In this partnership, we’ll share our millions of design resources with Deposit Photos in 2020.
We’ve partnered with GitHub Education to help students build their school projects/presentations using our Specialscout plan. Under this plan, verified students get access to premium resources by our selected contributors.

We also collaborated with Adobe XD again this year to deliver our latest update to the XD plugin. We updated our Adobe XD plugin to support panels that allow our users to insert resources for design when editing a document.
Iconscout comes to Figma
This was one of the most requested plugin from our users. We’ve released Iconscout Figma Plugin right after the launch of the Figma Plugins ecosystem. And guess what? more than 5000+ users are already using it on a daily basis.
We’ve released 1300 open sourced Line font icons that can be used right into your websites, apps and more. And that’s not it, we’ve added more icons as per your request. We also released a large update to it by launching them in the Monochrome version. And we’ll be launching more styles like Thinline in 2020.
Our design team worked on a weekend side project to provide free illustrations for the community. The handcrafted 50 illustrations are very unique in style and loved by our users.
We know as a designer you need to generate icon/logo for favicons, iOS App Store or Android Play Store submission. We worked on it and lunched the Assets Generator that generates these images with a single click.
Our mission to build the best design tools continues by launching Myscout in beta. Myscout is a design assets management tool that allows you to manage your icons, illustrations, stock photos, colors, fonts, and many more creative resources at one single place. This keeps your branch in sync with other members from Marketing, Sales & Development Teams.
