adJelly: Your social media image/ad guide

adJelly social media specs

You may recall that I’ve written about Advise in the past, but they’ve changed their name and domain to adJelly.

If you missed my previous write-up about them, adJelly offers a fantastic collection of specs for all the most popular social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, LinkedIn and more. You simply select the social media site you’re creating ads, images or graphics for in the left column and you’re presented with all the specs you’ll need.

The site is particularly useful for designers because sites like Facebook offer numerous options for sizes. For instance, Facebook offers sizes for single image ads, carousel ads, video ads, video slideshow ads, cover and profile images, post images, event images and more. Plus, specs change frequently, and some sites don’t make it easy to find the specs (I’m looking at you, Facebook!).

You can also download PSD and Sketch Packs to use in building your graphics.

Free font: Gilroy

Gilroy fonts
I love a nice, clean, well-rounded sans-serif font! Gilroy is kind of a cross between Gill Sans and Avenir; two fantastically readable fonts that work large or small.

Gilroy is a full family of 20 fonts which you can get for $45. But you can grab the Light and Extra Bold versions for free. Download the Gilroy freebies here.

Find the logo you’re looking for

Instant Logo Search

It seems like every time I do a Keynote presentation for a client, they’re looking to use a logo or two of other companies for examples. Of course just grabbing the logo off that company’s website rarely works out well. Thankfully, there are a few sites out there that make it easy to grab a nice, clean, vector version of the logo.

I recently came across another site called Instant Logo Search. They have thousands of logos, all searchable, and all available in SVG (vector) format—as well as PNG, if that’s all you need.
