Top 15 Best Designed Twitter Pages
Check out the designs.
1. Art of Freelance [@artoffreelance] – A very quirky and funky cartoon-style Twitter page which cleverly embeds the professional details, contact email and website of this freelancer. The page has a balanced mixture of rich red and blue colors.
2. Cam Olivier [@cameronolivier] – This guy is a UX designer and a web fanatic, as he describes himself. Visit his Twitter page to see a crafty, colorful yet professional page splattered with a bright hue of colors and funk.
3. Natalie Jost [@Natalie] – As a designer and administrator for Olive Manna, her designing skills come out clearly on her Twitter page. It’s as if a handful of carrots are falling from above, creating a serene, simple and peaceful image. There is very light use of colors, the ones used look like pastels.
4. Ellis Lab [@EllisLab] – This is one Twitter page that I like best. Its background is just plain white and its tweets display page matches perfectly with this background. This strategy makes their Ellis Lab logo very prominent and their tweets readable. Those who seek simplicity should go for similar designs.
5. I Love Typography [@ilovetypography] – This person from Japan is a designer, writer and founder of ilovetypography.com and is the publisher of Codex. Check out his Twitter page and you will see – class, quality, skill, professionalism, and knowledge – a fine mixture of qualities depicted through a surreal Twitter page. Really impressive!
6. Collis [@Collis] – Collis, a website developer, surely knows the art of marketing. On his Twitter background page, you will find a simple introduction – “Hello! I am Collis. I design, I blog, and I love the web” and no doubt, it is a marketing strategy. Without clicking on the “About Us” tab, you get to know all about him instantly. Good promotion!
7. Kevin Cheng [@K] – Just ‘K’ is his Twitter handle name. This guy from San Francisco is an author and runs a web comic. The first thing that strikes about his Twitter handle is a wonderful and very bright use of black and white. It looks like lighted grasses with butterflies hovering above across the black expanse. The background gives an arty profound feeling.
8. Farrhad Acidwalla [@Farrhad] – I had blogged about this whiz kid some time back in the top 10 list of successful entrepreneurs. His Twitter page truly lives up to his image of creative media and designing. It has images of bright rockets and a lab doctor performing experiments, symbolic of creativity that his company is famous for.
9. Freelance Switch [@Freelancesw] – The popular Freelance Switch mega site for freelancers is known for quality jobs and content. Their logo is embedded in the Twitter background with their web URL’s and a message saying think outside the box. This is a clever strategic message of CTA (Call to Action). Its appeal is somber, gray, mild colors and is full of professional / serious business attitude.
10. Paul Boag [@boagworld] – Like @EllisLab above, this Twitter background image is simple at its best. It has pitch black background color and the tweet page is white. This is symbolic of experience and professionalism, again. Paul Boag is the founder of Headscape, a web design agency and host of the boagworld web design podcasts.
11. Jonathan Nafarrete [@Jonathan360] – This guy is a photographer, social media strategist and founder of Active Matter. His twitter background shows wood paneling with scraps of torn paper attached on it as well as his image along with his credentials, suggesting his skills – social media marketing and photography.
12. Benek Lisefski [@Benek] – This guy from Auckland is a web designer and photographer. His Twitter background displays a default Twitter design in blue where his website URL is embedded on the top left corner.
13. Wayne Sutton [@WayneSutton] – A entrepreneur, advisor and tech journalist from Raleigh, he owns and runs socialWayne.com. The Twitter background page has his animated image along with his credentials as a social media strategist and technology evangelist, followed by a personal message and contact details. The layout is clean with a pastel colored background but the edges are a bit ragged. Overall, it gives a modern yet old worldly feel.
14. Darren Rowse [@ProBlogger] – The owner of ProBlogger.com, Darren Rowse rarely needs an introduction. His Twitter background is very popular with twitter users. It features the blog’s logo prominently. Leave it to Darren to design the best of designs. It is very cleverly designed and is one example of Twitter pages where there is no coloring on the sidebar.
15. Nabbit [@Nabbit] – This one made me giggle literally. The background image made with light and bright green colors with an image of a funny looking toad looking at you will make you laugh surely. For those who don’t know what nabbit.com is all about, it’s a tagging service that lets you tag anything you listen too on your mobile radio and saves them online free of cost.
Twitter background pages are not only for alluring your artistic sensibility. If you are clever enough, you can use Twitter backgrounds as an effective marketing tool. Just embed a few important details about yourself as we viewed in some of the Twitter handles above.
