Each element is broken down with specs, best practices and visual examples. Readers will learn how to create pages that are well organized, mobile-compliant and visually appealing. Topics explored include selecting the right photograph that will blend with your profile copy, left aligned verses center and right aligned background images and character length of descriptions.

This guide is a must-have for graphic design and brand building teams who wish to project the right image for their organizations.
