YouTube is an excellent way for businesses and individuals to grow their following and share content with the world. If you’re using a YouTube channel to upload and share video content, you can make your channel look professional -- and uniquely you -- by creating and adding channel art. Adobe Spark’s YouTube channel art maker brands your channel and entices users to watch your videos and become subscribers.
When creating a YouTube banner, make sure you consider how it will look on a wide variety of devices: smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc. YouTube recommends that the dimensions of channel art be 2560 x 1440 pixels for the best results on all devices.
Incorporate your logo into your YouTube banner to help distinguish your brand. Also consider adding some additional content related to your business. Images and other visuals can help make your page attractive to visitors and allow your channel to stand out from the crowd.
Keep any important icons, logos, or names near the center of the banner. Otherwise, your YouTube user icon or your social sharing buttons that YouTube inserts over the sides of your channel art could ultimately end up obscuring part of your banner. Forgetting this could hinder branding and marketing efforts.
If you star in your YouTube videos, consider adding a photo of yourself into your channel art. While not necessary, a photo can help make your page more personable and approachable.
When designing your YouTube banner, use the same colors you use in your branding materials. This will help keep your brand consistent across all channels.
