It's been a long time since I got my profile cover image by @zord189. Though, it is time to make some changes to the profile image as many of you could have noticed that I don't write often. Consequently, I would like to see something different than a representation of the news.
But I would also like to see more pieces than a cover image for Steem frontends. I wish to have a cover image for Twitter and Google+ as well. To be honest, I don't use them as much as I could and browse them less than in the past, but I suppose I can request all assets at once than creating tasks for each of them individually.
I have no idea. Yes, it is like that. Frankly, I often like to see what one can come up with while they have only a vague thought to work with.
Despite that, I could give you some hints on the colours. Although I have no preferences in that aspect, I can provide a few images with colour palettes I like. I would say that darker is better than light, but you may convince me otherwise with your skills.
I may even favour something more abstract or geometric, using simple shapes and objects. A combination of circles, lines and squares could be fine as well, but remember that it is not a requirement.
I am going to use the cover images for personal purposes and thus would like to avoid using any logos and pictures that relate to companies and (commercial) projects.
If possible, I prefer a distinct image for each of the platform, Google+, Twitter, Steem.
I will use a cheat sheet that was provided to me on Discord, and I will rely on that in this post. If you see that the dimensions are not correct, don't hesitate to let me know and I will fix it.
Twitter and Google+
As you could find out by reading the article above, there are some dimensions for images to fit perfectly.
It may be more complicated for Steem apps as I believe that there is no standard for the cover image dimensions because every app uses different sizes. I will only include my observations from my environment (desktop). Though I was told that 2047x512px should work well.
I currently use Steemit and SteemPeak, sometimes Busy as well. The image should not contain elements that will make the text difficult to read on any of those apps. Be sure that you don't insert the main elements in the corners as they may not be visible.
I will require images in a .png format in requested sizes, and if you work with vectors, a .svg is welcomed as well.
Source files and the final .png files will be requested upon selection and they will be sent in private before I send the reward.
I am curious whether more people can join this task and show what they can create. Therefore, I will run this task for 5 days till Thursday September 20. Be sure to submit your work by the end of the day (CEST).
I will be glad if you can send me your work in comments or in DM in Discord. You can find me in Utopian.io Discord as espoem#8461.
I will appreciate if you can show me how the images look like on the platforms.
Even though I am going to use for my personal accounts, I will request full rights for images that I will select.
I will give 25 STEEM to the one whose images I will like the most and pick for my use. Furthermore, I will select another two people who can win 5 STEEM each.
