Free Social Media Icons
While creating the google plus icon recently I started to explore creating other free social media Icons.
I managed to create a fair list and If im honest I only tackled the easy ones but if you look at the file you’ll see I used the same basic method on all icons to create the shine effect.
In short it can be broken down into these steps.
- Create gradient fill (brand colour mixing into lighter colour).
- Add a “inner glow” with a darker or similar shade of the brand colour.
- Add a border colour thats darker or similar shade of the brand colour.
- Once you’ve got the logo shape then apply a drop shadow with a darker or similar shade of the brand colour
