How to Make a Gaming Logo
If you’re serious about gaming and want to take it to the next level, a gaming logo is a must.
If you don’t have design skills, you can either work with a graphic designer, or use a logo maker. Tools such as Placeit make it incredibly easy to create your own logo. It’s a great first step, and once you’re happy with your chosen template, you can customize it and download for immediate use.
For those with experience with the Adobe suite, Envato has logo templates for gamers that can either be purchased by item on Envato Market, or downloaded with a subscription on Envato Elements. You may later work with a designer to optimize your creation but you can get your concept off the ground first.

How to Promote Your Twitch Channel
With the popularity of streaming services like Twitch, audiences are no longer limited to fans physically attending a gaming event. eSports teams are competing with traditional sporting titans for a share of supporters, and savvy gamers can take advantage of audience interest.
Everyone has to start somewhere – even if that’s the dreaded ‘0’ followers mark. If you’re confident in your gaming skills and know you’re just the type of person others would enjoy watching, you’ll want to get started ASAP. But before streaming for the first time, you need to get your branding sorted, so that your first followers know instantly what to expect from you.
Start by creating a custom Twitch logo and then a fitting Twitch banner that best represents your character. To get more viewers and followers, you’ll need to leverage your own social media presence and use posts to let your audience know you’re streaming, and that they should tune in.
Once you’ve grown your following, you may want to set up a shop page with branded products and merchandise, which your most avid fans can buy to support you.
