Free Social Media Icons for Designers – A Life in Pixels

A Life in Pixels - Free Social Media Icons for Designers

In this freebie icon set, you will find 16 free social media icons for sites that designers appreciate (such as deviantART, Flickr, Twitter, and more). This free icon set is called A Life in Pixels and is inspired by Minimalist design philosophies.

The set includes 16 32px x 32px PNG files. They are monochromatic and can work with many other colors, which is perfect if you are looking for icons that are subtle and muted so that they do not dominate your design.


Here is a preview of the entire set.

This set is clean and simple. I like it!

Sorry, but it is a crap! Why there are icons of polish social websites instead of more popular international sites?

Can we modify the color of these icons and still use them? Or must we use the same color?

Vikas Ghodke Sep 04 2009

Thank you very much for such a nice icon collection

I am going to have to agree with Rae a little bit on this subject. While I do appreciate the work put into making these icons, I feel they are not exactly the SixRevisions quality that is normally posted.

(fyi: your personal site has some broken links in it)

I really like these, but the flickr icon should probably have the white parts colored so people recognize it a flickr.

thanks for this freebies

Freebies are always nice!

Quite nice. the monochrome approach is what im actually looking for. Any chance you releasing bigger versions? say 128×128?

Jacob Gube Sep 08 2009

@Noel Nuguid: I’ll ask Daniele what he can do about that. Also, he has a new freebie to release here on Six Revisions coming up soon.
