Time for a fresh freebie! I’m currently working on a design update for this site and needed to replace a couple of social media icons with new ones that will be much more coherent once I’m done.
The Inspiration you ask?
I don’t know if you’ve noticed but everyone is going flat. I guess it may have started with the new Windows approach on interface design, but I’m no expert and not even really informed on the matter. All I can say is that seeing the plethora of sites, user interfaces, and even print design to hit the web most probably, and maybe subconsciously, influenced my direction for this site and thus served as inspiration for these icons. These icons are as close as I could get them to some of the current branding guidelines posted on the host websites of the interested companies. Some had to be traced by hand as I wasn’t always able to find the original vector logo files.
Cool, so what do I get?
What you get are fully vectorized editable individual icons. They’re all saved on their own Art Board, making saving and scaling operations a breeze. All you have to do is click on the icon of interest, use the ever so handy [Ctrl + Shift + Alt + S] shortcut to save for web and devices, and select the size and file format of your liking. You need at least Adobe Illustrator CS4 to be able to open this file.
below is a screenshot preview of the 24 social media icons :
