  • Use your logo or symbol in the post image.
  • Choose contrasting colours.
  • Keep colours to a minimum and from your brand palette.
  • Make sure you can clearly see your logo and all contents in the image, pay attention to text that goes over images or where logos are the same or very similar colour to any backgrounds for example avoid social media icons like LinkedIn or Facebook on blue backgrounds.
  • Try not to use more than two and keep them in the same font family. If you go with two fonts, use one for header text and one for body text.
  • Don’t use too much text on the image – keep that minimal and write in the post or comments.
  • Use text sizing that fits well within the platform that you are publishing to.
  • Use space, you don’t have to fill all the space you have, let things breathe.
  • Consistency is key in the content as well as in the frequency, when choosing design elements such as background images, keep in mind the quality and style. Graphics, diagrams, images, and illustrations should all have a purpose in your design and remain consistent in terms of quality, framing, style, proportion, and lighting.
  • Use your personality, every brand has a personality that differentiates it from the others. But if your brand’s personality isn’t reflected in your social media content, it will be hard to get heard.
