23 Creative Examples of Facebook Timeline Cover Images

I noticed that my last post of this type, “23 Examples of Facebook Timeline Cover Images” is still one of the most popular posts on my blog even after months of other posts, so I thought you all might enjoy seeing some more examples of the artwork on display by our musician peers. :)

Facebook Timeline has settled in and as of March, all business pages are in the timeline format. When I wrote the last one, the option to switch to timeline was barely a week old and I had a hard time finding 23 good examples because the format was so new.

So, as before,

I Present A (Somewhat) Random Collection of Timeline Images From the Music Industry.

I tried to take as wide a sampling as possible. There are a variety of genres, ages, levels of fame, and styles represented in the following list. My goal was not to compare them, but to provide a sampling.

This is what I think about when I look at these:

a) Marketing value (Does it convey who the artist is?)

b) Artistic value (is it interesting to look at? Does it capture attention?)

I did not choose any of these because they have particular merit. Rather than choosing the choicest ones for you, I’d like you to evaluate them for yourself.

    A lot of these are simple, but the choice of photos is very good in the sense that they have a lasting impact. I like that. My favorites are:

    No bias intended, but I’m also very proud of the page of the artist that I work with. https://www.facebook.com/pepeaguilaroficial
