Twitter is used as a sounding board for brands big and small. One aspect that can’t be overlooked on your Twitter profile is the background. The design and style can speak volumes, sometimes more than the tweets themselves. We’ve put together a list of ten different backgrounds on Twitter to inspire you to create a look that can say much more than 140 characters ever can.
Vectips is all about vector graphics. What better place to show off your vector chops than on your Twitter background. It can serve as a canvas for graphic designers to display their work while tweeting their latest announcements.
Go Media added a personal touch with a photograph of the members of their design and development team. This gives a face to their Twitter voice.
Rolling Stone is an edgy, trendy magazine that is renowned for their magazine covers of the same vein. Turning their Twitter background into an art gallery of magazine covers is a great way to connect to their followers.
Black Sheep PR
Black Sheep PR is a small firm with big ideas. They stand out from the crowd with an elegant but yet contemporary pattern for a background featuring their mantra ‚ÄúRock Out with Your Flock Out‚Äù.
Nike Sports Wear
What could be more suitable for the Nike company as a Twitter background than a design that instantly puts the visitor in mind of a sneaker box? Simple and understated, Nike gets their message across without trying to overdo it.
SunDrop wants you to know its taste is crisp and refreshing. The message is received loud and clear with this background. Makes you thirsty doesn‚Äôt it?
VH1’s Twitter background is cool, fresh, and modern looking. They chose not to feature the logo in the background and it pays off.
H&M knows sex sells. So does pretty women in a bikini. Job well done H&M.
Reggie Bush opted for the stylized image of himself. It portrays speed and athleticism. Precisely what he embodies.
The Tory Burch brand is elegant and refined. The framed images in the background collectively emit the same feeling.
These Twitter backgrounds all vary both in subject and style. All are effectively done with relevance and message in mind. The consistency of brands across social channels are important in both content and design. Does your Twitter background say the same thing your tweets do?
