Website designers are always looking for inspiration. Website design inspiration can come from a photograph, a texture, fonts, or from most anything found in the world around us.
I frequently find inspiration from icon sets. If you plan to utilize icons as a major component of a website design, it is sometimes beneficial to use an icon set as your starting point rather than trying to find an icon set that fits the website design. It is even better if the icon set you plan to use is free.
A perfect example of free a free inspirational resource is this social media icon set from Elegant Themes. This icon set has icons from the most common social media networks. Gradients and shadows provide depth and color to your small business website.
