Top 6 Twitter Redesign Concepts for Brands and Marketers

  |  February 14, 2014   |  Comments

After the Twitter redesign concept reports, ClickZ went around the Internet to find the top six Twitter concept suggestions for brands and marketers.

It's Friday, so why not treat yourself with this fun Twitter redesign post? This week, all media outlets were abuzz with the Twitter redesign report by Mashable. According to the photos, Twitter's next version would look like a Facebook clone. See for yourself:

Twitter declined to comment and a spokesperson only referred to the company's 6-month-old post about its culture of constant innovation and experimentation. The intention behind this concept seems to be to enhance engagement. But yes, detractors have a point: it does look a lot like Facebook. So where's the innovation there?

We decided to go around the interwebs to find other Twitter concept suggestions by talented designers that were worth surfacing for marketers. For this, we used visual resources such as Pinterest, Dribbble, and Behance.

Ready? Set? Here we go.

Click on the designers' names to access the full set of images and take a look.

Scroll down to the end - we have a question for you.

1. Design by Ramil Derogongun (aka Bluroon), Philippines

Flat design. Much easier to visualize the recommendations and trending topics/hashtags. Makes the community manager's life easier.

2. Design by Zsolt Hutvagner, Budapest, Hungary

A similar feel to TweetDeck; quite crowded but interesting nevertheless, especially from a brand perspective, thanks to the image and video displays.

3. Design by Suthan S. (full name undisclosed), Montreal, Canada

Very clean and very close to the existing Web design. Good call, obviously. Easier to track conversations.

4. Design by Dmitri Litvinov, Vancouver, Canada

Great look and feel. Particularly for the user profile on the upper left corner. Good for brands.

5. Design by Maxim Eriomov, Minsk, Belarus

This time, a concept solely for the mobile version. Click on Eriomov's name to see the full concept development.

Very futuristic and transforms Twitter's mobile app into a real experience. Provides visualizations, too. The concept makes full ads display more fathomable as well. Win-win on all sides.

6. Design by Fred Nerby, Melbourne, Australia

This last one is our absolute favorite. Apart from the overall sleekness, the user interface turns conversations into playful and visual treats. We're betting on high engagement, especially for brands interacting with consumers.

Your turn: Which of those do you prefer and why? Let us know.
