NEW Minimalist Social Media Icons

Pin It!

I'm hoping to freshen up my blog design a little bit, in the near future, and as part of that I have been tinkering with designs for social media icons. I really like the clean and minimalist when it comes to blogs, so this new set reflects that. I'm undecided as to whether I'll be using something similar on A Typical English Home yet, but here is a mock-up of how it might look:


In the meantime, I am making the social media icons available to my readers. 

What social media buttons are included?


I have included 14 different social media icons in these sets. The buttons include:
Bloglovin', email, Etsy, Facebook, Flickr, Google+, Instagram, Linked In, Pinterest, RSS, Stumbled Upon, Tumblr, Twitter, You Tube
There are twelve different colours of button to choose from, (which you can see further down the page). Most people should be able to find a colour which compliments their blog's colour scheme, and you may want to mix and match a few different colours!

Image details

The files are all in .png format with transparent backgrounds, so you can use them against any coloured background. I've made the icons 70 pixels by 70 pixels, which might be slightly larger than you want. I create them like this because it is easy to reduce the size of an image and retain the quality, but it is much harder to make icons larger if you need to without losing the crispness of the image. I have published a tutorial on how to reduce the size of an image, if you aren't sure how to do this.
