Here a few examples of what you can do with just the fireworks png (un-flattened) vector file from my blog Free Social Media Vector Icon Set.  Please note these are mainly to showcase using the file as a source file for icon sets and the different levels of customization that could happen. Feel free to download them all and do what you’d like with them. Click here to download all social icon sets.

Please Leave a comment if you’ve used these or if you’ve made a set out of these. I would love to see everyone’s ideas on how to deal with the ones I left black in the last set.  Also please leave a comment if there are any icons you would like to see added to the set.

Free Social Media Vector Icon Set (including pinterest and google plus!)

First I would like to say I am a Web Developer here at Beacon so Design is not my specialty. However, I’ve gradually been getting annoyed by the round corners that are on most social icons. I think there is always the ‘too much’ factor and for me I’ve been given too much round icons. So the only thing that looks fresh and appealing to me anymore is square. I’ve looked at other free icon sets out there and still have yet to find a basic and simple square set. So I decided to give it a shot :).

All these icons are vectors I created within Adobe Fireworks CS4. For most of these I used the method mentioned in this post (http://trentrichardson.com/2009/04/11/convert-bitmaps-to-vectors-in-fireworks/) and others I copied the company provided vector into fireworks and modified from there. Feel free to download and do what you’d like with them. I have them all within one file for ease of creating/posting but again each is its own vector so you can copy it into another document or slice them out from the file.
