One of the best ways to establish branding for your live videos on YouTube is to create and use your own logo during your broadcast. With BeLive, you can do this with just a few clicks!
But what if you don’t know how to design one? Or have limited funds to hire someone who can? You don’t have to give up right away.
The internet is chock-full of design software options that even beginners will be able to use and navigate with no problem at all. So which one should you choose? Here are the top tools to use to customize your logo for YouTube Live.
For live streamers who don’t have the creative skillset to create a logo from scratch, Canva is a great logo maker. It’s affordable, simple, and extremely easy to use.
You literally just drag and drop photos and illustrations, edit text, and change colors to create an awesome logo.
Canva isn’t limited to creating a logo for your YouTube channel either. It contains templates for all kinds of amazing artwork, whether you need to create a post for social media, a featured image for a blog post, or a presentation!
Can’t use your laptop? You can also download the mobile app and edit your stuff on the go! Best of all, Canva has a free version.
Arguably the most popular software for graphic design creation, you can find hundreds of tutorials on how to create logos using Photoshop online. With it, you can edit photos, add text, change colors, and more.
