How Ethyl 26 Media Group started their twitter background design journey

Company name

Housing.com

Overview

Housing.com is a search tool for finding a place to live and is a multi-media resource for learning about the people, ideas, trends and policies that drive and shape housing development worldwide.

Statement :

Human beings need shelter. We dream about houses. And we long for home. But home can mean many things. Homes are social symbols. They’re part of our identity. They’re comfort. They’re continuity. Homes encapsulate our history. And they reflect our psychology.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Our goal is to appeal to a wide variety of people. From the functionally illiterate to the highly educated.

We feel good design, like Apple's products, is intuitively understood by both ends of the user spectrum. If you are successful at this -- then the middle of all users will fall into place.

Obviously, we're not expecting to achieve all this with a Twitter page - but there you have it anyway.

Requirements

We would like to have the background design to subtly illustrate the wide variety of housing types in the world -- from modernist high-rise apartment buildings to mobile homes to the yurts of Mongolia.

Update: If people are finding it too much of a challenge to illustrate a variety of housing types -- one or two will suffice. simplicity is the key..

Please, nothing too busy. Looking for a relatively simple and "quiet" design.

Think housing for everyone.

A few things to think about:

1. Use Twitter expanded profile.
2. Incorporate the use of our logo as a piece of signage atop a building in a skyline. See New Yorker reference.
2. Illustrations of housing types, rather than photos.
