As your live streaming career starts to advance, you may find it helpful to create a logo representing our channel. A unique logo gives your channel a sense of professionalism, reinforces your branding, makes it easier for others to recognize you.
After you’ve created a logo, you have the opportunity to promote it through a variety of different avenues like adding to your emotes, overlays, or alerts. One of the best ways to start gaining some logo recognition is by adding it to your merch.
In this article, we’ll talk about how to customize your logo, add it to your custom Streamlabs merch, and start promoting your brand in minutes.
Visit the Streamlabs Logo Maker
To start designing a new logo, visit the logo maker dashboard. When you enter this page, you have the option to customize a pre-made logo template or start from scratch.
When you start from scratch, you’ll begin with a blank canvas. Here are some tips to help you create your logo:
- Start with a Symbol: choose a symbol that represents you or your channel. The symbol can be the centerpiece of the logo or used as an accent. It will generally be one of the most recognizable parts, so choose a symbol that is meaningful to you. There are hundreds of different symbols to choose from, so make sure to browse through all of them before picking the one you like. There are various types of symbols to choose from, including Aliens, Anchors, Animals, Bows, Brushes, Buildings, Fire, Feathers, and so on.
- Upload an Image: If you already have an image you feel represents you as a brand, then start by uploading that and accenting it with a symbol.
- Add Shapes: adding rectangles, squares, or ellipses is a great way to add some symmetry to your logo. Use them to outline your entire logo or capture your viewer’s attention.
- Add Text: Lastly, you can add text to reinforce the name of your channel.
You can resize any element you add to your logo or even copy and paste to make duplicates. You can even change them to a different color using the edit bar. If you are modifying a shape, you can also add a gradient.
There are hundreds of different fonts to choose from, all with a preview so you can see which one best suits your needs. Reshape and recolor to match your brand. You can also reorder layers from the side navigation — drag and drop to place.
When you are done customizing your logo, click on “Next Step” and download your image.
