ASSIGNMENT
For this project you will create a social media banner for your social media page, or for a fictional Skillshare workshop about starting your own Skillshare class.

If you want to make a Facebook Page Cover specifically, you can download the XCF (GIMP) file provided here that contains:

  • Layered Ratio Guides (Rule of Thirds, Rule of Fifths, Golden Ratio)
  • Layers with Profile Picture, Page Title and buttons (so you can create your Cover in an interactive “what you see is what you get” way).
  • A guide to show you what becomes hidden in mobile view.



DELIVERABLE
A social media banner, such as a Facebook Page/Event Cover, Twitter Header etc.
Dimensions: This is a matter of which social media platform you chose.
Format: JPG or PNG.
