Social Media Icons

I’ve often found myself requiring icons when linking to or referencing different social networks I’m a member of. Whilst there are a lot of icon sets available that can help me do this, most seem to be oversized and highly stylised. In the past I’ve used site favicons, but these can often be visually inconsistent.

With that in mind, and taking inspiration from the gorgeous icons used by Tim van Damme on his address card site, and the Social Media Mini Iconpack by Komodo media, I’ve created a selection of different icons each available in 4 different sizes.

72 Icons

4 Sizes

  • 48x48 anti-aliased PNG
  • 32x32 anti-aliased PNG
  • 24x24 anti-aliased PNG
  • 16x16 aliased PNG
