So with this in mind, we set out to up the diversity of icon collections. For all your inclusive design needs, grab a copy of our brand new, diverse free people icons below.

What does this free people icon pack include?

Those familiar with our work will know inclusive design has been our mission for some time. Which is why our existing library of visual assets offers a ton of free, diverse people icons already.

But with the need for inclusive visuals only growing in 2023 (and beyond), we knew there was more work to be done — and our community agreed. Thus, this icon collection was born to .

Let’s have a closer look at all the people in this pack. 

Diverse youth

Diverse free people icons - youth

Designed with diversity in mind, you can use these inclusive icons to portray young people from all different backgrounds in your posters, nonprofit reports, etc.

Hint: don’t be fooled by the small number pictured above. In reality, these illustrations cover a range of appearances and ethnicities, as each depiction comes preloaded with five skin tones you can choose between. You’ll also find a variety of hairstyles and textures, as well as freckled skin and accessories like glasses and earbuds.

With these visuals, your company will be the poster child for equal representation.

Diverse adults

Diverse free people icons - adults

Ready to help your audience see themselves reflected in your design files? Just add these diverse adult icons to your infographics, human resource documents, presentations and more.

That’s right. You’ll find women, men and nonbinary figures represented in this collection. You’ll also see indigenous iconography for a change — something that’s been sorely lacking — and highly requested — in the visual communication world.

And just like the diverse children and seniors featured, each adult icon comes with five skin shades to help you showcase a menage of melanin. Those with skin markings like freckles, wrinkles and vitiligo will also find themselves reflected.

What’s more, this pack offers people sporting all different hair types. From straight, wavy and curly, to protective styles like cornrows, these icons are set to be your mane go-to. Looking to represent folks of different faiths? Opt for characters adorned with religious garments associated with Jewish, Sikh, Muslim or Hindu indivduals.

And of course, we couldn’t leave out those with visual impairments. From eyeglasses to eye patches, we’ve kept an eye on your interests.

Diverse seniors

Diverse free people icons - seniors

Our older populations deserve diverse representations too, darn it! That’s why this pack includes seniors with varying skin tones and facial features, and some essential accessories like eye glasses and hearing aids.

Because survey reports and event flyers that only showcase elders in one way? Those are just…old news.
