Are you in need of inspiration for your Facebook page’s Cover Photo?
Some of the big brand names (and many smaller companies, too) have already switched their pages over to the new Timeline look, even though the March 30th deadline is still a few weeks away. Holly and I recently sat down and combed through Facebook to find pages that had good examples of Cover Photos. From all the examples we looked at, they seem to fall into four different categories.
Let’s take a look! We’ll post links to all the Facebook pages in each section. But just in case they change, we’re including a gallery at the bottom as well.
These take the approach of the profile photo being one of several photos that are part of the Cover Photo.
You can see that the fewest pages fall into this category. That’s probably because it takes someone skilled to pull this effect off without looking cheesy.
One Continuous Picture
These examples are one continuous photo or image, with the photo being a cut-out section of that photo that also makes sense as a profile photo.
Of course, this one takes some graphics software skills, and isn’t for the faint of heart.
Great Graphic Design
These don’t utilize neat tricks, but do have fantastic graphic design elements in their Cover Photos.
If you’d like to take the graphic design approach, contact us and we’d be happy to help you out!
These also don’t use any special effects, but do use great photography.
- Auntie Anne’s
- Car and Driver
- Charleston’s Edmond
- Louis Vuitton
- The U.S. Army
In addition, you also have those who have at least switched and are trying Cover Photos out. They’re the rest of the early adopters. Maybe theirs doesn’t look that cool, but at least they’re trying!
