How to Create a Stunning Social Media Banner

Being a social media designer, I have researched a lot to innovate social media posts. Everyone knows that visual content is more powerful than any text or audio content. That’s why it becomes an essential key to engage customers on social media networks. One can follow some basic rules to enhance its social designs. But certain points help you in creating tremendous graphics that stand out. In one of our previous blog, we have mentioned creating an attractive social media banner. Here I have mentioned few tips to create an appealing social media banner.

Tips To Create A Stunning And Appealing Social Media Banner :

Use transparent overlays:

In Photoshop you can add a layer on top of an image, filling it with solid color and then decrease the opacity or alpha value to make sure that the text is readable on the background. This is a useful trick to make your design stand out.

Choose your own font style:

If your company has a standard brand font then you can choose to ensure that it has brand familiarity and consistency. You can do better with fonts if you want to have fun. I use multiple fonts together to create a cohesive look, not something that seems too busy. The basic rule while playing with font style is to choose the simple fonts like – Sans-serif. You can create a social media post only with text by manipulating typography.


You may add a pun:

Don’t be afraid to add pun in your design. In today’s trend, I have noticed that puns and nerd humor get a lot of engagement. It might be a simple nod to a niche topic, but it creates imagination which helps your audience to relate to your image

Keep it simple:

Don’t get carried away with so many graphics, images, and font styles, the simplicity of design always wins when it comes to graphic design. You can make your designs neat, simple and to the point. It helps to reduce clutter which takes your message across the customers


Due to excessive use of social media nowadays, use of social media banners are also raising. These banners are responsible for the direct and indirect growth of a company. By using transparent overlays, by adding puns and nerd, and also by making the design simple we can enhance the quality of a social media banner.
