Design for Social Media

As part of Beirut Design Week 2013, Maya Zankoul and I held a joint workshop entitled: Design for Social Media.

In this workshop, over 25 attendees got exposed to the basics of design for different social media platforms. Topics that were discussed include: technical social media design components on Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin, such as dimensions and regulations, do’s and don’ts, branding guidelines, color theory, typography choices and types of visuals that can be shared. Additionally, the session included a discussion on best practices through real examples and a hands-on application.

Below are the slides of my part of the presentation.
