We’ve all heard, and most of us have said it… “Print is dead.” We live in a digital world. A world of LinkedIn and social media, of super powerful handheld devices and easy to use, fast applications that connect us all in a way we’ve never experienced before. So is the humble, physical business card still relevant? Does it have any use in this digital day and age? The answer, perhaps surprisingly, is yes. For a number of reasons.
Why do we need a Social Media Images Sizing Cheat Sheet?
Humans are visual creatures. To win at social media strategy, savvy content marketers need to create on-brand, scroll-stopping visuals that provide value. But… Each platform seems to have different preferred sizes for images and video content and they’re always changing.
One moment you have the perfect cover photo for your page. The next, it’s been resized, and looks all pixelated and wrong or just doesn’t fit in. We get that.
As designers, we are constantly creating and re-creating content for social media and always double checking or adjusting our sizing to stay up to date. So we decided to make it easier on ourselves – and you – by creating this handy cheat sheet.
How can we make marketing fun? Quick answer – themes. But we’ll get there shortly.

Why wouldn’t we want to mimic our marketing strategies and offerings after a company that has paved the paths of innovation, creativity, and success?
Simply put: Content marketing is storytelling where your customer is the hero. Advertising is purely promotional, with your brand voice leading the way.
