Essential tips to create YouTube designs


For channel art

Include your brand tagline or a punchy message that explains what your viewers can expect from your channel content. Ensure the color palette of the banner is consistent with the colors you’ve used for other YouTube graphic elements.

For thumbnail

Your audience won’t click on your video if the thumbnail doesn’t pique their interest. Include graphic elements that elicit surprise, shock or curiosity. Stock and real-life photos make for great options for your YouTube video thumbnail.

For end cards

Ensure your end cards provide users with relevant content that they can switch to after they’ve watched a video. Keep your copy concise and crisp and do not mislead your channel’s viewers.

For display ads

Use contextual colors based on your ad copy to encourage viewers to engage with the ad. Include a clear call-to-action to drive the intended user action. Ensure the ad links correctly to the target page.

For channel icon

Make your YouTube channel icon unique and memorable for your audience. Use colors that are consistent with your brand. Remember, your icon needs to be timeless, so carefully consider all the aspects before finalizing your design.
