Environment is a huge part of what makes an excellent content experience, and a good environment is primarily made up of how your content is packaged and presented to the world—its appearance.
Creating appealing visuals for your content is a great way to spark engagement, attract more buyers, and build awareness of your brand! Your visual strategy should play an important role during the process of setting up your Hub.
We recommend using these image sizes for thumbnails and CTAs on your Hub to create a visually appealing content experience.
In your Hub, a thumbnail is the preview image site of your featured image.
Recommended Thumbnail Image Sizes:
This larger image size ensures that if the image is featured as the larger tile in the Stream, it won’t be distorted.
Keep in mind that the title and description at the bottom of the tile will overlap the bottom of the thumbnail image (140 pixels or 25% of the cover).
Flipbook thumbnails are designed by default to be taller images, similar to the cover of a piece of content/book.
If you have requested any changes to your Flipbook tiles (for example, making the thumbnails the same size as article thumbnails), these dimensions may not apply.
For CTA best practices we have a whole post on the topic.
To help you get started, we’ve mocked up a simple CTA image template you can use on Google Draw.
The recommended resolution is 72 ppi as a .png or .jpeg.
