Social Sketches: Exclusive Free Hand-Sketched Icon Set

Social Sketches is a free icon set containing several icons of popular social networks exclusively released here on Six Revisions. All the icons are done in sketch style, which brings them a new look and makes them especially fit for grunge/hand-drawn themed websites; in fact, the set was created initially for use in Referrer Detector plugin on The Daily Faces, my new "daily sketch" project, but then I decided to release it for public use.

This set is licensed under Creative Commons: Attribution (attribution specification: none required, but appreciated), which means you can use them for any purpose, anywhere, any time, personal and commercial alike.

In the package, you’ll find 16 different icons for Digg, Reddit, StumbleUpon, Facebook, and more. Each icon comes with 6 standard sizes (32px, 48px, 64px, 128px, 256px, and 512px) in PNG format.

I hate to be the guy who asks for more in addition to what has already been so generously provided free, but would it be possible to add an email icon? just an envelope or something… these are fantastic and that’s the one medium i wouldn’t have an icon for if i used this set.

hi very cool design. well done. but one question, why no one creates an icon for youtube? thats also a social network site. it seems not many people take that into consideration. any special reason?

cheers, Hloti

These are fantastic — thanks for sharing! Any chance of getting a LinkedIn icon to add to this set? (pretty please) :)

I also second the other requests for an email envelope, but LinkedIn would be my first choice!
