Glossy Folder Icons – 123 custom-made free icons from our user

Hi, guys! This is Roman, the author of Folder Marker.

I’m willing to share a new free icon pack created by our user. It’s unusual for me to give a user-made icon pack, not a designer. The icon creation process requires much time, effort, inspiration, and talent. That’s why the number of users who can create an icon set is deficient. So, I was surprised when I received a letter from Domingo C. Mariano, the author of the set, asking me to share his icons with Folder Marker users.
