Designing your group: logo, short description, "About this group" tab

You have the following options available to customise your group:

1. Logo

Function: Your logo should be simple yet memorable and serve to visualise the basic idea behind your group. A good logo can also help your group to be perceived in the same way as a brand. It also helps group members to recognise your group in the overview, while also generating a sense of belonging among members.

Design: Unfortunately we can’t give you any specific information about designing your logo. The best thing to do is to use a search engine to find some tips on creating good logos. You can also look for e-tools that can help you realise your ideas (keyword examples: "Logo Maker", "Logo Creator", "Logo Designer").

Display & size: Your logo will be automatically resized to fit anywhere on XING (e.g. in the XING app or search results). You should use an image 600 x 600 pixels in size.

2. Short description

The short description will be displayed below the group name and should serve to indicate the group’s target group in 70 to 140 characters.

3. "About this group"

It’s entirely up to you how you choose to shape the content that appears in the “About this group” tab. You can use both text and images.

Click on “Add something” to add a text box or upload an image:

  • Add a text box: Enter a title and a description. Formatting information is available by clicking on the “i” symbol to the right of the word “Description”.
  • Upload image: Upload an image at least 190 x 190 pixels in size and crop the image how you see fit. If you like you can add a caption and a description.

If you’d like to highlight your image, click on the arrow in the top right-hand corner of the image and select “Maximise”.

You can also move the individual text and image modules around by dragging and dropping them with your mouse.

Tip: Take the time to make your group as “cosy” as possible and convey your group ethos in words and images. This will not only help you to clarify your own perception of your group, it will also encourage people to join and keep coming back to your group.
