Social media has become one of the most crucial parts of building a business, a name, or a brand. No matter where you look, you see business getting bigger and bigger, with social media often playing a huge role in their success.
The Wonders of Social Media
Why has social media become this huge? Well, for individual users, there is nothing more convenient than being able to connect with people all over the world through a few clicks. For brands and businesses however, it does so much more than that.
Social media has the power to dramatically cut your marketing and advertising costs. Just imagine. With a single social media campaign, you can automatically reach millions of viewers at a small price, something that used to cost millions when going through the traditional advertising route.
What’s even more brilliant about social media is the fact that you get people to become ambassadors of your name or brand, too. With a single click on the ‘share’ button, you have a whole army of advertisers working for you for free.
Incorporating Social Media Icons into Design
This is why it is not at all surprising if designers like you get requests to emphasize your client’s social media presence. At every turn, there is now a need for consumers to see how to connect with these names through the use of social media. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn – name it, your client probably has it.
Because of this increase in demand, it is now necessary to consider how these social media icons would blend well with the rest of your design. Despite the need to emphasize their presence, it is not right to change the entire concept you are working on just so you can easily squeeze those small icons into it without them clashing against the rest of what’s around them.
Below are 50 social media icon sets that you can consider using for your designs. Some are simple and would easily blend into any approach that you are using, while some of them are just as bold and outrageous as the designs that you could be known for. Pu them in every page, or put them in a quiet corner – it’s all up to you. The important thing is that these icons do their job of allowing the audience to connect with your client through social media, without being a distraction as they gaze at your final design.
