Where to Get Graphics for a New Project?

Need images for a new project? No idea how to make the most important graphical item of the application? Try looking at the web-page www.777icons.com! It will help you add beauty and grace to your software, which will play an important role for you later!

An icon is an essential part of almost any software project and it requires thorough preparation and requires not less attention than the design of the program itself. This is what the user finds first on his desktop after installing the software.

Ready Icons for software

It is vary important and definitely necessary for every software developer to gain money from his project, otherwise there will be no incentive to start a new project and the development will get stuck. Trying to rise the sales of a program and to earn a decent reputation on the market, developers often neglect one of the main graphical parts in software - its icon, while it could help to get more buyers and, as a result, rise sales and money many times.

A lot of developers view an icon as a useless attribute in application development, do not spend time on it and, therefore, the demand for their products is low and they suffer losses. And the following question appears: why is the need for the program low if it contains wonderful features, its algorithms work flawlessly and state-of-the-art development tools were used during its development? When we buy a product in a shop, the primary thing we see is its visual look and if it looks good, we buy it and only after that we find out what is in the pack, but if the look does not impress us, we leave such a product in place and go on in search of a more suitable one. The same is true for the virtual world - when a client downloads a shareware application, the first thing he sees is the icon of this program and he immediately gets the first impression about the project, which will later play the key part in choosing the product. Only after starting the program, the customer evaluates its features.

Judging from the psychological characteristics of any person, it is vital to make the first impression (which is the strongest one) good so that the icon would appeal to the user as much as possible and involve him in using the program. Just imagine that the need for your product among concurrents on the market depends on what pictogram your software has. And losing a customer nowadays means wasting the effort and money spent on this project, which equals to losing profit as well! Thus, you should think if it would be smarter to entrust the development of such an important element of your project to experienced designers and to dedicate more time to developing the functions of your software?

One of the leading experts in this area is the Aha-Soft company that developed the site www.777icons.com. Each client gets an individual approach so all demands and suggestions about the icon are considered. And this pictogram will later help you increase the sales of your program and, therefore, you profit!
