28 Twitter Profile Designs
- 18 March 2012 by Dean 0 Comments
Twitter recently launched a new user interface. With a new top toolbar and compartmentalised panels for content, it’s helped to streamline the site. A few months ago I posted about some inspirational Twitter profile designs (check it out to see screens of the old user interface).
@fontbureau – Reinforcing their brand with unique background photography.
@ilovetypography – I put this one under photography, because I’m guessing it’s a scan.
@itsaSmallWerld – Some mates from Melbourne running an awesome blog.
@kissysellout – Green grass is London electronic music producer Kissy Sell Out’s simple background.
@paulocoelho – I love his books and the background really shows how many people he influences.
@WorldHistory101 – Space photography!
@FrommersTravel – Although I’m not a fan of the double logo, this is nice and simple.
@jhouseparty – Great radio station in Australia.
@mashsocialmedia – I live their new look, it’s halfway between Facebook and Twitter.
@Microsoft – Showing product offerings with icons.
@techreview – Simple colours showing off the logo.
@TravlandLeisure – The brand uses social media well and their background puts you in holiday mode.
@djshadow – That’s what is might look like inside the ShadowSphere.
@FontFont – All about fonts.
@goSupermodel – Digital illustration for a girl brand.
@MyFonts – You might notice… picked up a few font profiles here…
@nokia – 3D effect is a nice change from the usual background designs.
@Number10gov – A nice profile from the UK Prime Minister, couldn’t say the same about the Aussie PM…
@UndercoverUX – Very cool and unique background, taking inspiration from the Survival Handbook series.
@webfontawards – Simple background design to create a great colour scheme.
Plain & Simple
@Font_ID – Keeping it clear cut.
@FontShop – You don’t see many yellow backgrounds…
@FontSquirrel – Simple and usable.
@HuffingtonPost – One colour backgrounds focuses the attention on the tweets.
@InspirationRoom – Makes you feel like your in a design studio’s fancy meeting room.
@longnow – Simple shapes in the background can add a little depth to plain backgrounds.
@typekit – The goal can be about being unique, or constant use of brand colours.
@uxintensive – An intense and strong background colour works with complementary colours.
What’s Coming Up On Twitter?
You’ll notice in the above profiles, that the Huffington Post’s and UK Prime Minister’s Twitter profiles have a header image underneath their profile information. This is a part of “enhanced profile pages” and while the extra options are only available to a select few, Twitter has said the options will be “rolled out more broadly in the coming weeks and months”.
