At Thunderbolt, we love all things digital. Our hard-working team of web developers and graphic designers, based in Surrey, are always searching for new, exciting and innovative ways to improve upon their latest projects. Social media icons provide a valuable contribution to the design of a website. In order to encourage visitors to engage with the company on different platforms, they need to stand out and be easily accessible, but also keep in line with the theme and overall design of the site. Many hours pondering on this conundrum has led us to bring you our Top 5 Free Social Media Icons, and (hopefully) help make it a little easier for you to decide on a set to use.
