Pantone Colour of the Year Social Media Icons


After searching for ages for a decent Pinterest icon for a new project I realised it would be much quicker to just make one myself. So I did. As a little gift to you I decided to make them available as a free download. I didn’t want to just offer the Pinterest icon so worked on a set of the most common icons you might need for your blog or website.

Since Pantone recently announced the ‘Colour of the Year’ for 2012 I thought it would be nice to offer these social media icons in the last four Pantone colours of the year.

So here they are Tangerine Tango, Honey Suckle, Turquoise and Mimosa.

Each icon is 45 px and in png format.

If you wish to share these icons please link back to this post.

Thank you and enjoy!

It’s the first time I’ve offered downloads as a Zip file so please let me know if you have any problems downloading them.

Please use the icons as you wish for personal or commercial work but please don’t resell them.

    Like you, I was looking for a social media icon set that includes Pinterest and found your blog via google – these are fantastic! I added the Mimosa set to my blog and pinned it on my “Blog Stuff” board. I was wondering if you would consider adding a Tumblr icon to your set? I would love to link to my Tumblr as well!

    Thanks again, love the blog, I will be following!

    The Tangerine is EXACTLY what I was looking for (Facebook /Twitter /Pinterest)- now all I need in Google +, and Polyvore. Is there a way to request or purchase those 2 individually to match??

    •  by  Isa Maria

      Hi Audrey! I took a look at your site and oh my they fit perfectly! I’m now taking custom design requests so will email you with details.

  12.  by  Tania

    Hi Isa, I downloaded your buttons and have put them on my blog already. I can’t get them to display next to each other though (not so html savvy…). Can you point me in the right direction?

    •  by  Isa Maria

      Hi Tania, I’ve emailed you :)

      •  by  Ashley

        I love your buttons but also don’t know how to get them to display next to one another, would you mind either posting the instructions or emailing them to me as well. Thanks!

        •  by  Isa Maria

          Hi Ashley, I’ll be adding the instructions soon, hopefully later this week, hope that helps :)

  13.  by  Marisa

    Hi Isa! Just wanted to drop by & say thanks!

    I hummed and hawed and wrestled with the age-old question “Honey suckle or Turquoise? Honey suckle or Turquoise?” before deciding that Turquoise was the one for me. The buttons look smashing – thanks so much for sharing.

    •  by  Isa Maria

      Hi Kristen I’ll be adding a How To post with the code soon, thanks for your comment, glad you like them!

    Thank you SO much! I too have been searching everywhere for a Pinterest icon, besides the one available on their site. I love the chic colors and am so excited about this find!

    PS – I also found this blog via Google, have implemented the icons on, and will be coming back to read more.

    Wow, these are great! Thanks so much for sharing them! Like some others, I am curious how to get them to display in a line. I’m not very HTML savvy, so any instructions would be much appreciated! Thanks!

    Just saw these over at Her New Leaf- just what I’ve been trying to figure out. Would love to get them in a custom color, but not sure how to get them on my site- do you have easy newbie instructions???

      Oh, and also wondering if there is a way to add an email subscription button?

    I LOVE these icons!! So perfect! I’m just wondering if there is a way to get the images in .png form without the white backgrounds? I would so love to put these on my site but my background isn’t white and I’d prefer not to have a white box around each image. Any help would be appreciated!

    I just gave my blog a makeover, and these social media buttons are one of my favorite things about my new look! Thank you so much. I credited and linked you on my “About” page.

    I noticed in the comments above that you’ve created additional buttons for other social networks. I’d love to use the Google+ icon in tangerine. Could you please email me with details about your fees for additional buttons? Thank you!

    Isa! Swooon…. :) Ok, so maybe I get a little carried away by artsy tech offerings. But I just love the social media icons you’ve created…and in this spring’s fresh, fashionable Pantone colors! Clean, simple but trendy!

    After easily installing the buttons on my site, I came back to your blog and have found many interesting and helpful articles for the small e-commerce business owner and all of us who are creative types! Thank you for your generous spirit and for helping my customers find their way to connect / share / navigate using your designer social media icons!

    Eep. Your Mimosa set is just what we need for a site due in 9 hours. It’s a volunteer event called the Nerdery Overnight Website Challenge. Would you be so kind as to provide either you AI (I know, I know) OR PNGs with no white square in the background (white symbols, Mimosa circles, no white square)?

    Please, please, pretty please?

    •  by  Isa Maria

      Hi Brenda, sorry I saw this too late as it was the weekend! I hope you managed to find what you needed.

    I love these buttons! What I love most about them is that they have a Pinterest button – most of the sets that came across when I googled for them failed to include one. I wanted to stop by and let you know that I’ve used some of the buttons in the turquoise set on my own blog, and I even wrote up a little post which gives you credit for them.

    The only question I have is that the buttons seem to be appearing as rather large, and a little pixelated (spelling?) on my site. I used Flickr instead of Photobucket, but I didn’t think that would make a difference. Any thoughts/suggestions?

    •  by  Isa Maria

      Hi Hannah thank you for your kind words and for crediting me on your lovely blog. I’m not sure why they are showing up bigger. Maybe it’s a setting within Flickr? The icons should be 45px by 45px so maybe check that Flickr is keeping them at that size. I’m not sure of another reason, sorry!

      •  by  Hannah

        Thanks for the quick response! I’ve been playing around on Flickr and figured out how to resize the pictures. However, when I put in the new HTML code for the resized photo, they still come out the same size as before. But I’m going to keep playing around with it! Thanks! :)

    Love these – just added them to my blog. And thanks for the link to the tutorial on how to add them which I used as well.

  37.  by  Jackie

    How did you get your buttons to have space in between them? Thanks!

    Thank you so much for sharing your social media icons. They are absolutely FABULOUS!!! I spent the last couple of hours trying to find ways to customize a Pinterest icon and landed on your site. I chose the Honey Suckle pack and they are perfect for my blog. Thanks!

  41.  by  Britt Smith

    Hi! Thank you for your free downloads… I have a question for you when I added them to my blog they had a white square around them instead of the circle shape? Did I do something wrong? Thanks!!

  42.  by  Brittany

    Do you happen to have buttons for email or linkedin? I would love those!!!

    Thank you very much for sharing this along with the link to the set-up tutorial!

    Thanks for the free buttons! I downloaded the Turquoise as if fits my selected theme. :) More power to you!
