Make it Simple
Now that you’ve seen some inspiring Twitter Headers, let’s create your very own Twitter header. See below how I created my own Twitter header.
CREATING THE CUSTOM DESIGN
Step 1Open Photoshop and create a new document 520px by 260px.
Step 2Let’s setup a guideline where our block will end. To do this go to View – New Guide. Set the value to 180px and make sure you select Horizontal.
STEP 3Now let’s create the blocks. Using the Rectangle Tool(U) create a 11px by 11px shape, place it from the top and downwards for the guideline and make sure each block has a distance of 5px. Also adjust the positioning as shown in the screenshot below.
Step 4Duplicate all the blocks until you reach far right.
Step 5Now that we have all the blocks in place, time to change the colour of each block. The goal is to suit your current twitter background. What if we choose three colours from the existing background? I took two colours from 1WD’s logo and a one colour a little lighter than dark grey.
STEP 6Continue filling the boxes with colours until you fill them all. Once you’re done, you should have something that looks like in the screenshot below.
STEP 7It feels like it’s a bit boring that it has the same number of blocks in each columns. What if we remove some blocks on the top and bottom? Let’s try it.
STEP 8Twitter will automatically darken up bottom part of the image about 50% – 60%. In this case, 60% of our design will not be enough to make the text pop up more.
