I'm launching a new YouTube Channel where I will be posting fun, sexy videos about travel (with and without kids) and life - my target audience is probably age 25 plus - mums/families and the odd bloke. I want the banner to look sexy, glam, eye-catching and fun...
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
I have tried designing my own YouTube banner but the dimensions are tricky (it's hard to make it look right on all devices) and I'm struggling to photo edit! I'm sure it would take a pro very little time to come up with something good! I would like an actual photo of myself (I will download a few below, but please do let me know if none of them are any good) which doesn't have to be big, but I would like to feature on it. The backdrop could be a travel image or other and the name of the channel - Go with Jo - must be big and catchy and perhaps have some humour.
My daughter came up with something which was a nice idea (but didn't quite work - she's only 11 yrs) which was a real image of me dangling off a cartoon parachute. She also came up with a cartoon aeroplane idea which had me looking out of a window and a banner trailing off the end of the plane saying Go with Jo. My nephew also worked on a version of that theme, but his dimensions are wrong. Here are his ideas: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bx…sp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bx…sp=sharing
And here is how one of them fails to work on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1…Ijzoiox11Q
This is how YouTube recommend the dimensions:
Channel art may look different on desktop, mobile, and TV displays. For the best results on all devices, we recommend uploading a single 2560 x 1440 px image.
Minimum width: 2048 X 1152 px. This is the "safe area," where text and logos are guaranteed not to be cut off when displayed on different devices.
Maximum width: 2560 X 423 px. This means that the “safe area” is always visible; the areas to each side of the channel art are visible depending on the viewer’s browser size.
