Hearting Social Icon Set2

Behind the design

As always, here are some insights from the designer herself:

“Smashing Magazine is one of the best resources of inspiration for me, I have found it very useful in my daily work. There has been lots of great freebies released, so I also wanted to share something special with the Smashing Magazine readers.


I work a lot as an illustrator, and one day when I was playing around with RSS-feed icons, this idea came to my mind. I decided to make the whole set of these little animals. Hope you enjoy them!”

– Mirjami

Thank you very much, Mirjami! We appreciate your efforts.
