When I officially introduced JaypeeOnline’s blog mascot to you guys a couple weeks ago, I mentioned that I was also working on incorporating the blog mascot into my Twitter profile, meaning creating a custom Twitter background. At that time, I was very busy due to the backlog caused by my 2 month blogging hiatus so I wasn’t able to get it done.
Yesterday, I had some spare time and remembered that I needed to finish the task of updating and incorporating my blog mascot into my Twitter profile. So I got to work and was able to finish it and have it uploaded before the day ended. I’m not really much of a designer so its just a plain custom Twitter background. What matters to me is that I was able to incorporate my blog mascot and have that “professional” and “branded” look to better promote my blog via my Twitter profile.
If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s a screenshot of my new Twitter background.
Btw, I designed this layout based on my laptop’s display resolution of 1280×800 so it might look a bit different on your screen. If you want to see it live, just visit my Twitter profile (@jaypee).
It’s still a work in progress so I might still make a few changes to it. My friend Vincent (@vincentchow) suggested that I take out the graphic on the right side and just keep the one on the left because the one on the right side can get covered in some display resolutions.
So what do you guys think? Feel free to leave your comments, suggestions and any kind of feedback regarding my new Twitter background.
@Industry News – Thanks for the compliments! Glad you like it. :)
It looks great! I like it. The image on the right carries your branding through, so I feel it deserves its place there. My resolution is 1680X1050 on a 22″ LCD and it works fine for me. I’ll go and check to see how my laptop views this when I use it again.
@Ambo – Thanks bro! I’ve also followed you on your new Twitter account. :D
Nice background Brother. By the way, just added you on my new twitter account.
@elmot – Hehe..I’m just trying to make-up for the 2 month blogging hiatus. ;)
Thanks for the compliments man! Those aren’t widgets, I’ve hard coded those RSS subscribing and social bookmarking buttons into my theme’s sidebar. The one on the bottom is called the Wibiya toolbar and I just did a review of it so you might want to check it out.
wow! you are really coming back with a bang jayps!
got so preoccupied with work and some stuffs that bugs my blog. anyway… your blog looks great…with some updated features…like all those widgets on becoming a fan of yours…and this one below the screen, i dont know what to call this one…
and the mascot! plus incorporated to twitter! simply amazing…
now im running out of words…eheheh
@K – Which avatar image? The one you’re using right now? Sorry my friend, my graphic design skills aren’t that good. You can try and ask one of your friends to do it for you or you can also hire a professional artist.
Nice, nice! I need a mascot out of my avatar image. Can you do that?
@JR – Yeah, I know. Its something I need to decide on whether I should keep the graphic on the right or take it out. 1440×900? That’s a big monitor you have there. Thanks! :D
Yeah it does get covered up. I’m using 1440×900. I still think it looks good though.
@aldrin – Thanks man! You do? Why don’t you get one too and you can also hire Dan Bailey to make one for you. ;)
nice new background… i want a mascot too. :D
