How To Design A Twitter Header In Under An Hour
Creating A Great Twitter Header Shouldn't Take Weeks
Hi there 👋 I'm Michelle and welcome to Edition 71 of Design Insight. A weekly newsletter for creatives with a focus on design.
✨ Enjoying Design Insight? Please share it with a friend.
What a week it's been! Design Twitter came alive this past week (for good and bad) to talk about Adobe's acquisition of Figma.
My immediate thought was one of concern over the thought of Figma being absorbed into the giant monolith that is Adobe Creative Cloud.
I've spent the last week reading articles and listening to podcasts discussing this news and I've resigned myself to the following mindset: I'm going to keep using Figma until it doesn't suit me anymore, then, if needs be, I'll find an alternative.
Whatever your take on this is, it will be interesting to see how it all plays out down the line. I’ll try to be optimistic :)
Let's get started.

A copywriting formula you can use for writing engaging copy is: problem, agitate, intrigue, positive future, solution.
People ultimately want solutions to their problems. If you resonate with them based on the problem you’ve highlighted they are more likely to continue reading to find the solution.
