Things we create:

Profile graphics

First impressions count. We'll ensure all of your social profiles are consistent with your brand and entice your audience to engage.

Social content

The visual element of social media posts is crucial. Expertly created graphics will provide the cornerstone of your presence.

Motion graphics and film

Our team includes animators and videographers so if adding high-quality moving imagery will show off your brand, let's talk.

Graphics for ads

Grab the attention of your audience with ads on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube or Google’s Display Network with professionally designed graphics.

Not all brands have access to a professional graphic designer to create engaging, timely, on-brand images to share on social media. If you don’t have the luxury of an in-house graphic design team, doing the research, gathering quotes and commissioning designs at a reasonable cost is a challenge.

Our specialist graphics team creates social media-specific graphics that take your online presence to the next level. We create engaging content that ensures our clients stand out on social media.

Catching the eye of your audience is no easy feat in a busy Facebook feed. Compelling someone into action is another thing entirely! Here’s where amazing imagery makes the difference.

Tom’s top tips for great social media graphics

Stay on brand

Just like the content and tone of your copy, your brand’s imagery needs to stay on brand at all times. This includes the colour palette, typeface and the subject of the image. Try creating a brand guidelines document, which could be as simple as listing your fonts and hex colours.

Remember, everything your audience sees scrolling your social profiles should tie in seamlessly with your company’s overall ethos and feel. Anything off-brand or off-topic can alienate an individual immediately.

 

Catch the eye

Well, duh? But whilst this should be completely obvious, it can be easy to use or produce humdrum material that fades into the Twitter-sphere or fails to fan the Facebook flames. Ensure there’s a focal point to the image, ideally, it is to the left of the centre of the image, which is where we look as we scan Facebook and Twitter feeds.

Bright colours or just a great image is enough to stop someone scanning and get them to take a closer look.

 

Sell the dream

Don’t get too hung up on your products alone, think about what you’re really selling. If your product makes someone’s life easier, how does their new life look? Selling a car? What freedom are you giving the driver, what about the adventure?

 

Use infographics (wisely!)

Infographics are still a great way to engage and add value to an audience. Ensure they’re well-researched and will mean something to your audience. Don’t fall into the trap of making one just because you’ve seen one go viral, think about creating something of real interest or it’ll end up in the ever-growing pile of awful infographics lost in the ether.

 

Avoid memes (unless they’re seriously good…)

… and by ‘good’ we mean really topical, genuinely funny, or both. Memes are a great example of something that big brands with loyal followings can get away with. Just because someone in the office saw something that they’ve not seen before and thought was hilarious, doesn’t mean the majority of your fans won’t be sat scratching their heads wondering if you’ve been hacked.

5/5
It is a pleasure to review JC Social Media! I have had poor experiences in the past with web and media developers. Many promise the earth when you start but fall short on delivery. My experience with JC Social Media has been both warm and co-operative. A rare thing today.
