Looking for inspiration for your artist of label Soundcloud page? Here are 10 examples of beautifully designed Soundcloud banners for you to check out!
Soundcloud has become a hub for electronic music artists and back in July the music platform gave all account visual profiles with large profile banners. Some artists and label’s have really started to make the most of this space to make their profiles look great and really reflect their brands. With online presence becoming more important than ever having a good Soundcloud banner can have a real impact for artists and labels. We take a look at 10 great examples below..

Monstercat‘s branding is always on point. Their unique style is consistent across their social media, website, releases and merchandise. The profile picture and banner blend together seamlessly, this is a really great design!
The masked man, Claptone keeps it simple and perfectly on brand with his profile. Note: Keeping the background of the banner and profile picture consistent really helps to give Soundcloud visual profiles a clean, smart look.
Billy Kenny has made a pattern out of his own face for his Soundcloud! This is a really fun way to stand out and is really different from most of the designs we have found. By making the profile picture slightly darker and adding his artist logo he makes sure the profile image really sticks out.
Toolroom Records have fairly recently had a complete re-brand. Here they keep everything fresh and on-brand while promoting a recent release to the right hand side of the banner. Simple, effective and cool!
ZHU‘s branding and marketing has been brilliant since he burst on to the scene in early 2014. His Soundcloud currently reflects his latest project, ‘Generation Why’ but keeps his artist logo in the forefront by making use of the main profile image.
Paris based label, Crosswalk take a huge amount of care and attention when it comes to their design. We love the clever use of space and the way all the branding neatly fits together on their beautiful Soundcloud profile.
Hawtin has decided to go with great photography rather than graphic design but still manages to capture the essence of his style with the black & white photo. A strong photograph can make for an awesome Soundcloud banner…
French producer, Zimmer has gone for the striking image above. The bold colour and contrasting dark profile picture really help him stand out from the crowd.
Sango has a simple, greyscale style on his Soundcloud. By keeping the colours in his profile picture similar to the colours used in his banner the Seattle based producer’s page has a cool, understated vibe (much like his music).
Berlin based producer Max Liese has one of the coolest looking Soundcloud profiles we have seen. His logo and the background fit perfectly together and it’s all perfectly in line with his branding and feel-good musical style.
You didn’t think we were going to end this post without a cheeky plug for our very own Soundplate Records did you?! We wont blow our own trumpet too much..
