It seems as if almost every blog and news site out there makes use of social media buttons– links to post the article to Facebook or Twitter, or more niche sites like Pinterest and Dribbble. But if everyone includes these buttons, then you run the risk of having a design that starts to look a bit like everyone elses. Fortunately, there are some beautifully designed social media buttons out there that have been created by some extremely talented designers – and they can help your site to stand out from the crowd while encouraging more sharing of your posts.
We’ve brought together a showcase of stunningly crafted social media buttons that are all available for free (although please always check the license before using them, especially for commercial purposes). We hope you find them useful for your next web design project.
Are there any beautifully designed social media buttons that you think deserve a mention? Let us know in the comments.
