We are looking to complete a new Facebook Timeline banner image project to move forward with the new Timeline fan page. We recently completed a Facebook banner project and I am attaching as examples those completed designs to give you guys a feel for what we thought was a great design originally, just needs to be re-done now with the advent of Timeline at Facebook. We also have provided several major brands and their new Timeline designs as examples. Below is an overview of the new design paramaters from Facebook:
The Timeline cover displays a giant 851 x 315 pixel banner across the top of your Page. For a restaurant it could be a popular menu item, a band could display album cover art, and a business could show a picture of their customers using their product.” Covers may not display calls to action or references to Facebook features such as “Like this Page”, purchase or pricing info such as “40% off” or “Download at our website”, or contact information such as web address. Rajaram says “brands have been very positive [about the restrictions] because they don’t want to be seen as overly promotional — it’s a turnoff. Pick a visually stunning, high-resolution image that will delight or intrigue visitors and make them want to scroll down to your updates.
