The cover image on your pitch page is a great tool to promote your brand, support the campaign and highlight what products and services you offer to your customers. A good cover image is essential to ensure that your pitch stands out among the live investment opportunities on Crowdcube.
The image used should be consistent with your brand to help new and existing customers distinguish your company from other businesses on Crowdcube. Communication of who and what your brand is about is the key focus.
The image itself should do the talking, so you shouldn't include any text in the image. Your company logo will be on your pitch page, so this doesn't need to be included in your cover image.
Use a photo where possible. Think about what you want the focal point of the image to be and then position this to the middle-right of the canvas as this will ensure the focal point isn't obscured by your logo or company name.
The image must be supplied as 1500px by 375px, but you can use our cropping tool if your image is larger than that. The file size can be no more than 256kb.
You must have the necessary rights to use the image to promote your business.
We recommend keeping your cover image consistent with your current branding, for example, using the same style imagery that's used on your website or social channels. Although we add a subtle gradient behind your company name, we recommend not using white or light colours in the bottom half of the image to ensure that your company name stands out.
