1. Tell us about your brand
Enter your business name, tagline if you have one, and a little bit about the look and feel you want.
2. Make it your own
Choose a style that speaks to you. Then, customize the fonts, colors, icons and text to bring your new logo to life.
3. Share it with the world
Download your custom logo design and use it anywhere you need to—from business cards to branded merch.
Choose the right font
Your logo’s font helps to set the tone of your YouTube channel’s personality and story. The typography you choose should align with the theme and mood of your channel.
For example, gaming vloggers often use bold, innovative fonts, whereas playful fonts are more suited to channels with content for children. If you’re unsure of which direction to go, spend some time researching other businesses in your field to get inspiration.
Use color strategically
If you offer software tutorials on your channel, colors like blue and gray are suitable as they represent trust and security. If your content is about styling or home decor, then brighter, bolder colors like purple and orange are good choices as they portray a sense of fun and creativity.
Make a graphic statement
Icons, illustrations and graphics also help your YouTube channel stand out from competitors. Make sure to choose a graphic element that aligns with the type of content you create.
For example, if you’re a travel vlogger, symbols that represent travel like mountains, an airplane or equipment like backpacks and hiking gear could work well.
Select the right layout
If you want your YouTube Channel to pop, it's crucial to have a clear, well-laid-out logo that complements your personality and content category.
To ensure your logo is as effective as possible, test it out to see how it translates specifically to YouTube as well as any other platforms you might use it on. Make sure nothing is lost in translation, even on smaller devices such as smartphones.

What size should my YouTube logo be?
The recommended size for a YouTube logo is 800 x 800 pixels. However, it's important to also consider the file format (JPG, PNG or SVG) and file size (under 1MB) for optimal performance across different devices and platforms.
Can I edit my YouTube logo after creating / downloading it?
The editing options available to you depend on the Wix Logo Maker plan you choose. For example, with the Unlimited and Business plans, you can edit your logo as many times as you need. However, if you purchase a Just Logo plan, you’ll need to upgrade to make changes once your logo is purchased. Learn more about the logo plans available to you in our support article.
