My brother is a very proactive person. Recently, he decided to expand his interest to creating his own Youtube channel, live-streaming games and cooking. He reached out to me for branding his channel identity, Love Crunch.
I haven't had many opportunities to design a Youtube channel artwork before so the first thing I did was to google "Youtube channel artwork template" and click on one of the top results to download a template in PSD format.
Two things I noticed with these templates (I downloaded a few because the instructions weren't clear for the same reasons):
- The instructions were wordy and didn't state the most vital information straight forward.
- And, for those of you who are not designers or familiar with working with Adobe Photoshop, these templates can be nightmares.
So, I made some adjustments/improvements to the existing template formats out there.
- Easy-to-follow layer names
- Simple and concise instruction with focus on the main task (to create and to export a single artwork)
Whether you are a designer or a marketing coordinator, I hope you find this template easier and more pleasant to use. And, it's free for you to use.
