My Friend is Hugh Briss, and one of his companies is www.TwitterImage.com (Hugh also offer other cool designing services like the new service for YouTube backgrounds, blog skins and even logos).
I have first came to know Hugh through following some of my all time power twitter users, I noticed they had some brand new Twitter backgrounds, they all had one thing in common: A tiny logo somewhere on the design that says: Made By “TwitterImage.com”
So I headed over to TwitterImage.com and found out all of Hugh’s examples and clients, I think I browsed his samples for over an hour that day, they are very impressive.
Hugh had a very smart business approach, he offered a free background design for any power twitter user (back then the cap was 3000 followers) in exchange of adding a small note that it was made by TwitterImage.
A very clever marketing strategy, that made me apply for one, and I knew it would be a while to get it done since I applied right before Christmas time, and I was right. It took Hugh and his team about a month, and I am assuming it was because of the huge respond he probably got from his smart marketing strategy.
You can still get a free premium design if you have over 5000 users (That’s the cap at the time I’m writing this) or you can buy the same design for just $100 directly from his site.
