Are you planning to revamp your Twitter presence?

Though Twitter is known as a text-based platform and not everything you tweet is particularly picture-appropriate, you can still get more eyeballs on your post by tweeting an image with suitable text overlaid on it.

In this post, you’ll learn about Twitter graphic design and a walkthrough of how you can design your graphics for Twitter Posts in DocHipo. DocHipo offers an easy-to-use drag-and-drop editor, multiple useful widgets, and a vast collection of graphics for you to create and design graphics for Twitter.

Read this post till the end to create a strong Twitter graphics strategy for your business. Let’s dive deep into Twitter graphic design.

Twitter graphics best practices

If you tweet posts with high-quality graphics, your brand will stand out in your audience’s or potential customers’ Twitter feed. Let’s discuss some ideas for Twitter posts with graphics.

Create your own images

If you download and use images from the stock photo libraries accessible to everyone, there will be no such uniqueness. As much as possible, create your own images for your Twitter posts. Your audience will remember your unique creations.

Infuse the vibe of your personal brand or business into your Twitter post designs. In case you don’t have the time, resources, or the budget to invest in a professional photographer as of now, incorporate your brand elements into your graphics for Twitter.

Be consistent with your brand’s color palette

If you want to build an engaging community, you need to communicate effectively what your brand or business is about. So do it not only with the choice of words but also through the tone, color, and overall branding. It’s important to maintain visual consistency on Twitter or any other social media platforms to ensure that your brand message stands out in the audiences’ Twitter feed.

While your unique and memorable graphics will get your brand noticed by your audiences, consistent color palettes will help them recognize your personal brand or business immediately.

Add your logo or website address to your images

Will you feel bad if someone else uses the images you created thoughtfully? Definitely yes! Once it’s out there online, it’s difficult to track whether it’s getting repurposed by someone else.

In this context, Twitter suggests that,

“Make sure everyone instantly knows an image is yours, even when it’s Retweeted by your followers (or target audience) to users who are less familiar with your business. Place your business’s name or Twitter handle on your media and ensure potential customers can always trace their steps back to you.”
