PSDFAN Gets a Twitter Facelift (Plus Some Twitter Inspiration)

Twitter Redesign!

It’s been long overdue, but PSDFAN finally has a new Twitter background design! The old design just wasn’t fitting with the new website design, so I spent a little time today giving things a refresh.

I hope that you guys like the new Twitter page, and if you’re not already, then please follow us, to receive daily design updates and tips.

What Makes a Well Designed Twitter Background?

After redesigning the Twitter page I asked a few Twitter friends:

‘What makes a well designed Twitter background?’

Here are a few of the answers:
“My background has been featured on MANY ‘best twitter bg posts’. I think what makes a good one – Uniqueness, innovation and style!”
Twitter to me is more of a personal tool, so I think it’s fun to show your personality through your design.
A good background should inform visitors of who you are, but it must not distract from them from the tweets.

My Favorite Twitter Backgrounds

After redesigning my own page, I got thinking about some of my friend’s Twitter pages. I’ve listed 5 of my favorite Twitter background designs below:
