From the author:
“As a brand designer, I am often tasked with populating all the social media channels for my client companies with profile pics and covers. It was always a nightmare; all the sites required different pixel sizes, some would cut stuff off on a laptop that would show on mobile, and key content like taglines would get cut off, angering the client.
I thought: why am punishing myself? I took the time and made a comprehensive template. Now I can design out graphics for all social media channels in less than ten minutes after finalizing my first design. The artboard and smart object tools in PS are very powerful.”
