RESOURCE: Twitter Redesign Template


Twitter announced the latest profile update, with a larger header image and redesigned look. At Glow, we tackled the latest facelift by creating a template we’re sharing with all of you. After testing various header image sizes and tinkering with layouts to work across desktop and mobile, the downloadable template takes all of that into consideration.

While the recommended image size is 1500×500 pixels, we’ve found that increasing the image size to a full 1900×610 pixels will place your header image in as you’d like to see it. The 610px provides a top and bottom padding of 55px each, which eliminates the need for an upscaling effect when you initially upload the image.

As you’ll see, we’ve also included a “mobile profile photo placement” layer. This allows you to design with mobile in mind, and not place any key elements in that 187x187px area. (Note: You should test your design in mobile anyway).

There are two templates to choose from: Template A for those with Photoshop CC and Template B for older versions of Photoshop. Download away. Start designing*. Provide feedback (if you’d like).
