Free Social Media Icons: Tricons

Free social Media Icons: Tricons

In the pack, you will find 12 triangular wooden icons of popular social media sites released exclusively on Six Revisions. I wanted to create my first set of icons that were unusual from the rest of the other social media icons, yet still followed a particular popular design element: wood.

Each icon comes in 3 sizes (32px, 48px and 75px) in PNG format.

Great idea about the triangular shape! One question though, how will you link them since the square shapes of the images themselves overlap? I guess the only way would be with an image map where you can have arbitrary shapes for the links. =)

Great icon set – my only query would be how to implement them.

Hi all, thank you for the positive feedback that really is fantastic! There has been a couple of queried comments in how to implement these.

Ok, so you want to contain these icons within an un-ordered list, obviously within a particular order where the icons appear similar to the screenshot above. Then you make the un-ordered list to display inline, then give a negative margin-left to each of the li you feel is a suitable gap between each icon. Also remember when adding a href link around each image, don’t forgot to add text-decoration: none to remove hyperlink underscore. If comments permit adding code, below is an example. Hope this helps with the queries. Thanks

<li><a href="" rel="nofollow"><img src="32x32/facebook.png" /></a></li>


ul li {display: inline;}
ul li {margin-left: -10px;}
ul li a {text-decoration: none;}
