    Hello there! :)

    So, I have this gig on fiverr which I had started a couple of months back. It was just for seeing how far I could get with graphic design skills and such. I'm kinda new to the niche. A month back, my gig started getting orders and I met some amazing people on there! :) The only thing that bugs me about fiverr is the huge commission they charge but eh, what can you do about it?

    Anyways, I was wondering if you guys could take a look at my gig cover that I'm planning to upload and give me some suggestions on how to improve it and make it more eye-catching. Feel free to tell me if you think I have done a good/horrible job. :)

    Thanks! Have a great day.

    The only thing I'm fine with are the three badges in the upper right corner. The rest is just poor quality in my opinion.

    Redo it. Replace the girl, replace that western movie style big font that covers half of the social media icons, and replace that messy background.

    Innosoft- Thank you! What type of abstract images do you mean?

    Aty- I see. Thank you for the feedback. I edited out the image and the font to make it a bit cleaner. However, the pictures are mine and I thought that it was a good idea to incorporate pictures of yourself in the cover photo on fiverr right? I'm just going by the top rated sellers and their techniques so I could be wrong here. Regardless what should I replace it with?

    One image of yourself should be good enough, seems like it's overdone with the pictures. I agree about the text over the social media icons being a problem. Here's what I'd do. Put one picture of yourself, make the text a bit smaller and put it in the middle maybe. Keep the right side the way it is because it looks fine to me.

    As for the background, I don't see much of a problem with it. I think once there is only one picture it'd be better.

    Personally i think you can edit the picture of girl in middle way better like this is so much blur.

    I agree with this 100%.
    I would also suggest you use only one elegant font, and when you change the background - use something abstract, don't use girls for no apparent reason.

    In short - the cover image needs more style, and unless you're selling women, change the motiv of the image.
