Welcome to episode 8 of Layout Design Bootcamp where my goal is to take you through entire design layouts to show you the exact process of how it’s done. In this eighth episode, I continued to implement the brand of “Hot Shots Hockey” that I developed in Logo Design Bootcamp Episode number 8. I decided to show you how to fully design a set of social media graphics including, the Facebook profile shot and cover photo, the Twitter profile shot and header background and the Google Plus profile image and background cover. This tutorial will teach you so many things including:

• Setting up multiple pages
• Changing units of measure
• Photoshop content aware
• Photoshop Lighting effects
• Clipping masks
• Transparencies on images
• X & Y axis positioning
• Adding an outer glow
• Saving pages for web
• Positioning social designs
and of course…..much more!

The goal here is to help you understand all the different ways that things can be designed. To help yourself and every other artist out there, I want everyone who is recreating this layout, to make a version of your own. You can choose your own size and type of layout (web or print) and make it your own. I then want you to email it to me at or tag it on my Facebook page. I will then be making videos with your submitted artwork showing viewers all the ways that the same idea can be done.

    Great tutorial man! I have prebuilt psd templates for each social network,
    but I never thought of setting up my templates all together as one single
    document (in AI or ID)… Not only does this method make it easier to
    create one from the other, but it also consolidates them neatly as one
    file. Thanks for sharing this, you’ve changed my work flow!!!! One thing I
    would recommend is to save a blank document as a template, this way you
    don’t have to plug in the page sizes/layers each time!

    and produce lighter files?

    Thanks a lot…..Sit tight!

  15. Stephen Looney says:

    Once you start designing layout in Illustrator and InDesign you will never
    ever ever go back to PS. Because of it’s vector nature you can produce
    really quick results with typography and shapes. I’m not sure about the
    file size part you mention.

    hey man, these are very very helpful series, however if u will continue it
    I’d suggest fixing audio a bit. It’s very good, loud and clear when u are
    presenting your episode but it’s getting quiet during video itself, just my
    two cents ;). Keep up
