The Brief

I imagine that, like me, you say that you never have enough time and that you just cannot cope with 60 dozen things all at once. Why add social media icons to that list?

When it comes to designing, it can get tedious to create social icon styles over and over again for each project you work on. The idea for Socially Iconic was built from this idea in mind. For one of the client projects, I had to create six different versions of social icons set. That weekend, I decided to save myself some headache and create a all-in-one social icons bundle. I didn’t like the idea of using flattened PNGs, so I crafted a simple font using icons I created before. Finished the project and client was satisfied.

The company I worked for then saw the icons kit and asked if they could make it part of their software with an easy to use code. I put it up on Github and saw that there was a need for this kit. I later improved it quite extensively by adding dozen more styles and hundred more icons. Through the help of the wonderful folks over at Icons8 and Gravit, the latest build of Socially Iconic was born. It is now used by students and designers all over the world.
