Whether you’re a brand or an individual, as a Youtube creator a big part of your strategy should include supporting your video content with consistent and attractive YouTube branding. For successful YouTubers, a YouTube banner is an essential element of your YouTube channel. In this article, we'll share tips for creating effective YouTube channel art using templates. We've also put together a list, if you're looking for a YouTube Opener or YouTube End Screen template.

What is a YouTube Banner?

A YouTube banner is header art for your YouTube channel and usually includes the channel name and logo, along with social media and website links. Banners give viewers an at-a-glance look at what your channel is about and what they can expect from you and your YouTube video.

YouTube Banner Design Tips

As you likely know, customizing your banner with fonts, colors, and logos that are consistent across your online presence will help with that all-important brand recognition. Crucially, you should follow these tips to ensure that your YouTube banner displays correctly on all devices.

  1. Central location
    Put information like your channel name, logo, and call to action buttons in the center of your banner so that they are visible to viewers on every device — otherwise they could get cropped out on smaller screens.
  2. Readability
    Fonts, graphics, and background images should highlight your text and logo, not overshadow them, so keep it simple.
  3. Size matters
    Channel art should be 2560 X 1440 pixels, which will allow your banner to scale correctly across platforms, from large screen TVs to smartphones.
