LinkedIn recently jumped on the “giant-sized header” trend bandwagon – but it’s still a work in progress.
See an example below:
As you see, there are only certain areas of the banner that are visible, so it makes it tough to get any real kind of marketing message out there about yourself with these confined areas.
Either way, it’s a space online that we can use, so we will use.
LinkedIn’s recommended banner size is 1400px x 425px.
For your ease of use, I’ve created a PSD template file for you to use that outlines the useable and non-usable areas of this LinkedIn cover profile.
