How to create a frame for your Clubhouse Profile Photo + Free Templates

Clubhouse; a new live audio app – has been touted as being the hottest social media network in 2021, and rapidly gaining momentum, perhaps due to its exclusivity. Right now, it’s only available to iPhone users, and is invite only, with many people willing to pay in the 100s of dollars for that ‘Golden ticket’.

Have you joined the Club yet?

Once you’re in, you’ll find that the hype is worth it. With high profile speakers, groups, topics and clubs to join, it is a breath of fresh air from the Zoom-gloom we were all a part of during 2020.

However, being an audio only app, visual display options are dire. With other social media platforms like Instagram giving us headaches with too many places to post a selfie or a dance, Clubhouse is the extreme opposite and offers.. just one.

That space is your profile image.

And that profile image follows you all around the app. From your profile, to any rooms you join, to Clubs. When you’re in attendance, your profile image is in full view, just like if you were physically present in a meeting or conference. It’s teeny-tiny, but any user can tap on it to enlarge it to approx 1/3 of their iPhone size, so it’s power should not be ignored!

WHY CREATE A BORDER FOR YOUR CLUBHOUSE PROFILE PHOTO

When you’re in a Room in Clubhouse, your visibility depends on a few factors. At the top, you’ll find the room moderators and people on the ‘stage’ (eg speakers), then it displays profile images of people that are in the Room currently, and that are followed by any of the speakers on the platform, and finally, the main room. Within the main room, your position will depend on what order you’ve entered – the earlier you’re in, the closer to the top you are. As people leave, you move up in position. If you leave, you return to the room at the ‘back’.

It’s no surprise, that with only your profile image to stand-out in the ‘crowd’ of the room, that users are looking to make more creative profile images. We’ve seen rings surrounding images, flags, image filters and other graphic images that certainly are eye-catching.

Custom frames and borders can also be used to display different statuses within your profile image, such as ‘Just Listening’, and ‘BRB’, as there is currently no other way to indicate your availability.

You can easily swap these out by creating a few different images, with the text component updated on each, and then storing in an album on your phone to quickly update:

  1. Tap on your profile image at the top right of the App.
  2. When in your profile view, tap on the image again (now on the left).
  3. You’ll be prompted to change the photo, ‘Pick from Library’ or ‘Take a Photo’. If you’ve stored your designs on your phone, you can quickly change them before you enter any Rooms if you’d like your status to be clear that you may not be around for long.

18 FREE CLUBHOUSE PROFILE PHOTO FRAMES YOU CAN USE OR CUSTOMISE NOW!

Our talented Graphic Design team have created 18 drag and drop templates that you can utilise for free to enhance your Clubhouse profile images. Each template allows full customisation of colors, text and adding your uploaded profile photo, as well as adding filters to your image if that’s your thing.

And also, they’re made in the absolute correct Clubhouse Profile image shape.. it’s not actually a circle! 😉

Keep in mind that when you first join ‘the Club’ your profile icon will include a celebratory emoji that appears at the bottom left corner of your profile image. Likewise, if you’re on Stage, you’ll also have a Microphone that toggles between on and muted status, so it’s wise to keep those areas clear of both your profile photo (don’t crop too tightly!), and any graphics. The welcome emoji does disappear after being on the platform for a couple of weeks, so if you decide to update your profile image down the track, you could utilise that area too.

It’s also worth noting that whilst the borders appear quite wide here, they are far more subtle when reduced in size and viewed within the app, so don’t be afraid of starting with something bold & bright!

STATUS BORDER TEMPLATES

Clubhouse currently doesn’t give you any option to communicate that you might need to leave the room. Even if you’re a speaker, it can be awkward to be on stage, and the FedEx guy arrives with your delivery, or nature calls…
