Kirksville Web Design's Social Media Icon Pack

It can be a difficult task just to find the perfect social media icon set. So made our own Kirksville Web Design Social Media Icon Pack! We created our icons using Inkscape (similar to Adobe Illustrator) and saved all the icons in .svg format. We also provided all the icons in 32px and 64px .png sizes. Here's what's included in your icon pack: Google Plus Icon - 32x32px, 64x64px, vector .svg Twitter Icon - 32x32px, 64x64px, vector .svg Facebook Icon - 32x32px, 64x64px, vector .svg Linkedin Icon - 32x32px, 64x64px, vector .svg This icon set is not some corny rendition of an icon.

Kirksville Web Design - Google Sites Redesign

When you are a web designer it can be hard to break away from your client's websites to give your own Google Sites a graphical update. Kirksville Web Design  had not been given a proper revamp in a couple months. Using GIMP, we created new header and footer images. We simplified the approach on the homepage and made a more dramatic impression. I know my style, skills, and preferences are always changing. So it's not say the old design was bad, but my designer conscience started to bother me and I started not to like it as much as I once did. One thing I am fond of is the Google logo and script in the top right. The color and familiarity of the logo grab your attention. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
