Only use the ‘f’ logo to refer to:

  • Your implementation of Facebook on your website
  • Your product’s integration with Facebook, such as ‘For use with Facebook’
  • Content that originates from Facebook

The proportions and spacing of the “f” logo should never be altered for any reason.

Instagram Logos & Guidelines

Instagram has a singular focus on captivating imagery and nothing symbolizes this focus more so than their logo.

Logos

Instagram has two main logos, the black and white logo and the App Icon.
instagram-icon
The black and white Instagram logo should be used whenever you refer to your presence on Instagram.  The App Icon should only be used if you are showing it on a device with other apps or if you are encouraging people to download the Instagram app.
  • The Multi-color camera logo shouldn’t be altered in any way. However, the black and white Instagram logo can be used in any color, as long as all other aspects of its design stay the same.
  • Unless the glyph or camera logo will appear in a list of other social media logos, a clear call to action (e.g. “Follow us on Instagram”)should accompany the logo.

Transparent Instagram logo

When you’re creating content, it’s super helpful to have a transparent Instagram logo to use in your designs and assets.

Instagram logo vector

An Instagram vector logo will help your designs in two key ways: scalability and flexibility. Jpg and Png images aren’t too scalable, but a vector image can be resized to fit your specific needs.

Twitter Logos & Guidelines

The Twitter bird is instantly recognizable. However, it has been through quite a few transitions since Twitter first launched in 2006.
The current Twitter logo features the bird with its head angled upwards.

Logo

new, correct Twitter logo
The minimum size of the logo should be 16 pixels, and the empty space around the logo should be at least 150% the size of the logo itself. For example, if you’re adding the Twitter logo to hashtag or username, it should have the correct 150% spacing:

Guidelines

incorrect Twitter logos
Twitter asks that people refrain from using the marks in a manner that suggests sponsorship or endorsement by Twitter, or confuse Twitter with another brand. Alongside these points Twitter also share a few more guidelines when it comes to using their branding:
Don’t:
  • Use speech bubbles or words around the logo
  • Rotate or change the direction of the logo
  • Animate the logo
  • Surround the logo with other birds or creatures
  • Change the color of the logo
  •  Anthropomorphize the logo
  • Add special effects to the logo
  • Use older versions of the logo, previous logos, or any marks that may be confused with the brand
To support its logo mark, Twitter primarily use the Gotham font family.
