Designed to make it easy to test your avatar & header image designs across multiple sizes. Just modify the shared .psb files and sketch symbols and see updates applied across all files/sizes.

We’ve updated the designs to reflect the mid-2017 design update rolled out by Twitter. These changes include:

– Rounded avatars
 Rounded buttons
 Updated navigation
 Proportionally scaling cover images
 New icons and button styles

License: These files have been produced with the intention of helping fellow designers. We therefore request you do not repost them as your own downloadable resources, do not host the files in any other location, or attempt to sell these assets for personal gain. Share the love and spread the word.

 

Desktop, Laptop and Mobile files

The Twitter.com UI is responsive and so the exact proportions of the interface at different screen widths varies, so we have selected 3 common widths covering desktop, tablet and mobile. The twitter profile avatar dimensions are 500 x 500 px, which get resized into various smaller sizes for application throughout the UI . This higher resolution must allow for retina versions to be used in apps and is only seen by the user directly when they click on your profile image form your piffle page. The files have been well organised and labelled to help you when modifying it for you needs. These files have been made using the most recent versions of Adobe Photoshop CC and Sketch. If you have an older some features of the file may not work as expected. The UI in all the files have been remade from scratch using vector shapes, allowing the entire file to be scaled to any resolution. Wherever possible we have used shared .psb assets and symbols that can be replaced in one location and propagate everywhere across the separate files for each size; change once, applied everywhere.

We try to keep these files as up to date as possible. We’ll always endeavour to update them quickly if changes affect the assets you need to create in order populate a profile.

 

Desktop

This new page is a slightly more dynamic that previous twitter profiles. The size of the cover image is responsive flexing with the browser width, so we picked a width that represents the header photo asset at 100%. Any images you create and export will be at the required size for uploading. The size represented in the Twitter GUI shows how the image will appear at 1500px wide, which in a browser will crop the top & bottom. The source asset you are looking to upload will be 1500x500px – the size we have created the smart object in the PSD and Sketch file.

Laptop

At this narrower width the header photo shrinks considerably a – so take this into consideration when designing your twitter profile header photo. Twitter’s responsive desktop site only scale as far down as 950px (despite the header navigator continuing to adapt its form below this width). Accessing twitter.com in a browser on a mobile device invokes a separate mobile website. The assets you create will look quite different here, but we would recommend designing your header photo to best suit the desktop and mobile widths, as these are by far the most common use cases.

Mobile

The most common use of twitter on mobile is via the native apps. The same assets are still used on every platform, but past desktop this is the second most common view of the assets you create, so we suggest making them scale down well to this size. This is where the header photo becomes a little problematic when trying to display finer details as it been made so small, and UI has also been overlaid. We therefore recommend not adding small text into your header photo (avoid using text altogether unless large & short) as it it will likely be illegible at this size.

  

 

This is what these files are for – testing your designs an ensuring they work across all sizes.

We have other resources too

We love to make and share. There‘s always been great resources available online, here‘s our opportunity for us to share with you and to give back to the community.

Call to action (CTA)

A call to action is a marketing term that refers to a prompt that invokes a response leading to a sale. When referring to a call to action (CTA) in the digital design world we usually mean the interactive element that leads to the next step in the experience - something that needs to be clicked or tapped.

User testing

User testing refers to a technique used in the design process to evaluate a product, feature or prototype with real users. There are several reasons why you might want to undergo usability testing, the most common is that it allows the design team to identify friction in a user experience they are designing, so that it can be addressed before being built or deployed.

WYSIWYG

WYSIWYG (pronounced WIZ-ee-wig) is an acronym for "What You See Is What You Get". It helps identify an an interface that allows user input resulting in an output that is rendered in a similar way. For example; a word processor application interface might resemble a piece of paper,so when printed the user can see how the output will appear.

Content Management System

A content management system (CMS) is an tool that allows a website editor/administrator to manage the content that is displayed. Websites are made of HTML and CSS to create pages. Pages can be hard-coded but would require technical development skills to make changes. A CMS usually allows a person without coding knowledge to amend existing and add new content to a website using a WYSIWYG interface.

Responsive Web Design

Responsive web design refers to a web page that dynamically adapts its layout to fit the size and orientation of the device on which it is viewed. A responsive design allows for a more optimised user experience across desktop and laptop computers as well as smartphones and tablets of varying sizes.

User Stories

User stories allow the functionality of a product or service to be expressed as written descriptions of an experience as seen from the users perspective. The writing of user stories creates a list of design and development tasks to complete in order to create any required functionality.

User Interface

A user interface (UI) is a conduit between human and computer interaction - the space where a user will interact with a computer or machine to complete tasks. The purpose of a UI is to enable a user to effectively control a computer or machine they are interacting with, and for feedback to be received in order to communicate effective completion of tasks.

Personas

A persona in UX Design is the characterisation of a user who represents a segment of your target audience. On a project you might create any number of personas to be representative of a range of user needs and desires. The solutions you design must answer these needs in order to deliver value to your target audience.

Card sorting

A great, reliable, inexpensive method for discovering patterns in how users would expect to find content or functionality. Card sorting is used to test the taxonomy of data with a group of subjects, usually to help inform the creation of the information architecture, user flow, or menu structure on a project.

Brainstorming

A technique used to generate ideas around a specific topic. Often done in groups, but can be done individuals. The process usually involves writing down all ideas around a topic onto paper, a whiteboard or stickies often implying some kind of association.

Minimum Viable Product

An MVP is a product that has the minimum set of features to prove the most essential hypothesis for a product. Businesses building a new product can create a Minimum Viable Product to prove that an idea is viable and warrants further investment. A further benefit being that the next stage of development can be informed by feedback obtained from testing that MVP.

Sitemap

A sitemap is a diagrammatic representation of a hierarchical system. It usually depicts the parent-sibling relationship between pages in a website, showing how sub pages might be arranged underneath their parent groupings. This arrangement forms a map of the site.

User journey

A user journey represents a sequence of events or experiences a user might encounter while using a product or service. A user journey can be mapped or designed to show the steps and choices presented as interactions, and the resulting actions.

Prototype

A prototype is draft representation built to test ideas for layout, behaviour and flow in a system. Prototypes are an indispensable tool for resolving a large number of potential issues in a concept or business before too many resources are deployed to put a design into production.

Wireframes

A Wireframe is a visual schematic that conveys a basic level of communication, structure and behaviour during the design of a system. Wireframes are low-fidelity designs that bypass including a detailed user interface or visual design, conveying just enough to get across the core idea.

Usability

To say something is usable is a qualitative statement about how easy that thing is to use. Usability is an assessment of how learnable a system is and how easy a user finds it to use. The usability of a system or product is a key factor in determining whether the user experience is a good one.

Information Architecture

Information architecture is the design and organisation of content, pages and data into a structure that aids users understanding of a system. A more organised system enables users to more easily find the information they require and complete the intended tasks.

UI Design

User Interface Design is the discipline of designing software interfaces for devices, ideally with a focus on maximising efficiency, responsiveness and aesthetics to foster a good user experience.

UX Design

The practice of User Experience (UX) Design is the coming together of many specific design related disciplines to improve the usability, responsiveness, uptake and aesthetics of a product or service.

User Experience

A general term that covers all aspects of a user's participation while engaging with something that has been designed. Usually when talking about User Experience in the digital design field it refers to the interactions, reactions, emotions and perceptions while using an app, service, website or product.
