From a gaming logo to livestream plugins, get your Esports brand noticed by developing your own unique branding.
The days of Esports not being taken seriously are well and truly behind us. Even before the world responded to COVID-19, the industry was experiencing an average revenue increase of more than 30% per year—and now, with many of us spending more time at home, its popularity is only accelerating. We’ve also noticed this trend, with searches on Envato increasing for Esports-related topics, including PUBG, Twitch, eSport, and Free Fire.
There hasn’t been a better time to get involved. But, unsurprisingly, with popularity comes greater competition—to get noticed you should spend time developing your own unique branding.
It’s the way you present yourself! Think about any well-known sports club and they’ll have their own distinct colors, logos, fonts, and general branding. Esports is no different. Whether it’s your gaming logo, your website, your Twitch assets, or online videos, picking a unified brand will help people learn more about who you are as a player and separate you from the crowd.
These days there are loads of options at your fingertips for designing your Esports branding. You can visit Envato Market for Esports templates that you can download straight to your PC before easily customizing them. Or, if you have a subscription to Envato Elements, you can download as many templates as you like at no extra cost.
