How do you make your Twitter page more consistent with your website? Easy, you design a custom Twitter background. Before you get too involved though, make sure you are aware of the new Twitter interface. It has recently changed, therefore changing the way custom backgrounds looks and how they are to be designed.
Before, you had a ton of space on either side of the Twitter dashboard. But now, that space has been narrowed due to a user-friendlier interface. But the custom background is still important, if nothing else for brand recognition.
When you set out to design your custom background, there are few directions you can take. If you have access to a photo editing software, like Adobe Photoshop, give it try for yourself. Begin playing around with the layers and see if you can’t come up with something that fits your overall design.
If you would rather rely on an expert to design your background, we can help. Once we have seen your website our professional design team will take the overall design and feel from your current site and design a custom background to fit your overall brand message.
Once you have your Twitter background in hand, it is a simple process implementing that design onto your Twitter page. The steps to implementing your custom Twitter background design include:
If you have issues with getting it to look right, you can change the background as many times as you wish. Just repeat this process until you are satisfied. We have designed and implemented over 100 custom Twitter backgrounds here at IMAVEX.
With the old Twitter background, you had around 235-250 pixels to work with. But with the new interface, you have less than 150 pixels to work with. That being said, try not to squeeze so much information on the left and right hand sides, just give the user something visually appearing when he or she visits you online.
