Help with Twitter Graphics and #HeroLost Site post

Have you ever created twitter graphics?

I've been trying and I might need some help.

Here are three I've come up with. Votes on which one you like best and why would be very helpful in the comment section. I have a feeling that the first is two wordy and the print is the wrong color, but what are your thoughts?

First:

Second:


Third:



Plus, I have a post up at the Hero Lost Website Here: Haunted by a Refrain
Visits would be welcome! :)

What's your vote on the graphic?

The one I like the most is the last one. It's short and to the point, but it also intrigues me about a dragon-slayer who wants to become a bard.

John Holton said...

I like the hird. In addition to being to the point, maroon and gold are my alma mater Loyola University's colors.

Tyrean Martinson said...

Cherie - Thanks! I appreciate your specific commments. :)

John - Thanks! Interesting reason!

Chemist Ken said...

I like the third one best, although if you could get the word "retire" into the beginning lines of the blurb (like in the second one), I think it would help focus your intent.

Yes, the color scheme of the first one is hard to read.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Third one - sums up the story and gets the point across quickly.

Tyrean Martinson said...

Thanks, Ken for your specific feedback!

Thanks, Alex!

Nick Wilford said...

Third one, definitely. It's succinct and snappy.

What everyone else said. The color scheme on the first one is hard to read. And the lettering on the last one pops the most.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

The wording and the colors on the 3rd one POP. You want the message short and memorable and that one fits the bill.

The third one has the most pop. :) Sounds exciting! I can also see something like, "Maud just wanted to lay down his swords and pursue his own bardic dreams. Except for one small thing: Dragon-slayers don't retire." Or something.

Yes I've made Twitter graphs before, and the two most important aspects of doing so are color and conciseness in text. I think #3 has both those aspects.

Patricia Lynne said...

The first one is too hard to read because of the colors. I like the last one the best. It's short and too the point. Also, have you tried Canva.com? I use it for all my graphics because I can create some nice looking ones for free.

I like the last one...it's bright enough to catch the eye but still looks very professional. Great job! I always pay someone to do my graphics and that gets expensive.

Juneta Key said...

lol, I'm gonna be different I guess. I like Two best, the color was more inviting and it caught my attention because it's easier to read on the eyes, especially for someone whose eyes give them trouble. The color blue is more soothing psychologically when you google that aspect inviting trust. (This one has the hook line I like best too.)

My second pick is three because the hook line has more impact to my inner reader.

LOVE #3

Lynda R Young said...

The last one is the best. The least wordy the better and the more chance people will actually read it and get engaged.

Lynda R Young said...

PS, I loved your story, by the way

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

I vote for the middle one. I like the colors best.

Christine Rains said...

I like the last one in that it's the shortest, but I'm fond of the blue color.

Shannon Lawrence said...

I like the blue one best, but both 2 and 3 have the better wording.
