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 1

Open Photoshop and create a new document 520px by 260px.

Step 2

Let’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 3

Now 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 4

Duplicate all the blocks until you reach far right.

Step 5

Now 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.
  • #f58220
  • #6d6f71
  • #8a8c8f
The orange squares will be aligned to the avatar image, then the remaining blocks will be filled by the other colours.

STEP 6

Continue 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 7

It 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.
It looks more appealing to me. What do you think?

STEP 8

Twitter 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.
How it looks when we upload it on Twitter.
Now what we are going to do is add a gradient to the bottom part of our design. Select the Gradient Tool(G), change the Foreground colour to #8a8c8f, set the gradient to Foreground to Transparent. Start filling from the bottom towards the centre of the canvas.
Now that we have finished our design, save it as JPEG, Ctrl + Alt + Shift + S to save for web.

HOW TO SET YOUR TWITTER HEADER

Click the settings icon and choose settings from the drop down menu.
Select Design
When you scroll down to the bottom you will see Customize your own. Click change header botton and upload the JPEG file we just created.
When you look at your profile you will see how great it is :P
