Find Your Perfect Match: Collection of Free Thematic Social Icons Sets

How many times have you stumbled into a website that captivates you with its unique, remarkable design, where every functional part shines with originality? Then, when you decide to follow this creative person you suddenly discover that social media icons are just ordinary squares with recognizable colors and logos that barely fit into the whole composition. And as a result the overall effect fades away, the first impression proves wrong.
