Free Social Media Icons SVG: Vector Pack for 2016
When designing promotional materials for my clients, I often find myself having to include social media handles alongside their phone number and email addresses. In the year 2016, social media is just as much a communication tool as phone, email and web. Because of that, it’s safe to assume that you’ll be regularly using social media icons in your own design work, whether it be for business cards, postcards, flyers, social media headers, and so on. In this post I’ve put together a pack of free social media icons SVG format for you to download.
Logo Design Course
Curious about the creative process that inspires me to come up with design ideas and how I go about executing them? Be sure to check out my logo design course for a look behind the scenes at my systematic approach to coming up with design ideas.
Up until recently, I went about obtaining these icons simply by Googling them and downloading them directly from the platform’s website. This method is rather inefficient and disorganized (especially when you’re working on multiple projects that call for the use of these graphics,) so I finally dedicated a little bit of time to putting together a document of all the major social media platforms’ logos in up-to-date, monotone, vector format. This way, when I need them, I simply import the file into whatever I’m working on, use what I need, then discard the rest.

I suggest saving it to a folder where you can readily access it whenever you need to include any kind of social media handles in your design work.
As you may already know, the logos and branding of these platforms change quite frequently, so make sure to keep a pulse on what the latest designs are in case you ever need to update your file.
Edit May 19th, 2016: Speaking of frequent logo changes, Instagram recently changed their logo, so I’ve updated the file including Instagram’s new logo. Enjoy, and happy designing!
