As always, the web is teeming with talented and generous artists who offer their visions of a more beautiful Internet up for free. We’ve sampled their wares and chosen the classiest badges and buttons that will alert your readers in no uncertain terms: “Hey, I’m doing things on the Google+!”
Found any beauties we missed? Link away in the comments.
1. The Google+ App, by David Walsh
Probably the defining Google+ icon on the web right now, the subtle gradients and light shadow give David Walsh’s contribution the look of a smooth stone. It’ll make a nice addition to any webpage or app dock.
2. A Google Rainbow, by Samuel McQueen
What it lacks in texture, it makes up for with a fresh take on Google’s color scheme.
3. A Clean Vector, via Sean McCabe
Here’s the original inspiration for Walsh’s, created by designer Sean McCabe. This option includes the big plus.
4. A Bit of Texture, via Creative Nerds
This four-pack comes with and without grain.
4. Assorted +1 Items, via IconShock
If your site favors the shiny 3D, look no further than this pack of graphic trinkets.
6. A Subtle Shine, by ~abhashthapa
At first glance, this pack may seem similar to those previously discussed. But the bevel of light that runs across each one adds a glossier feel. What’s more, the set comes with the white versions, as well as their non-glossy counterparts.
7. Circular With a Waving Banner, by Taiyab Raja
This little number makes thematic use the Google+ “circles,” and adds the logo colors with a waving banner. It’s a great choice for an airy blog theme.
Mashable clouds sold separately.
8. A Touch of Glass, via Serif Tuts
We really like these. View them at full size for maximum appreciation.
9. Inverted Metal, via The Icon Deposit
In a word: epic.
10. A +Fresh Font, by David Silva
