BOSS, the Bands of Santiago Sharks, was in need of a Facebook cover photo for their new BOSS Boosters page. This is a private page for BOSS to communicate with the parent boosters of their band members. The cover photo needed to instantly recognizable to the members of BOSS.
The three choices are very similar, but in working with BOSS in the past, I had a good sense of what they were looking for. I chose two images, one from a home football game and one from when they marched at Disneyland during their 2015-2016 season. In addition, I stayed within the font and look/feel of a Band Camp logo I created for them just a short time ago.
The cover photo was created to the exact size requirements of Facebook, as well as optimized for web viewing. That way FB wouldn’t over compress the photo, potentially ruining the image.
