If you're not a designer or don't have time to create your own logo design, you can always trust on Logo Bot to help you create the best logo design.

We'll guide you through how to get the best results for your Youtube Channel.

How to Choose the best Icon

People react really well to good branding, and that should be your strategy. You should aim to have distinguishable characteristics, on a platform like Youtube you will need to make yourself stand out from other creators. An effective logo design is one that evokes direct associations with the industry in which you’re involved, in this case, your Youtube brand.

If you’re already making content, you must have an idea of what an appropriate image for your YouTube logo will look like. On Logo Bot you can enter a keyword related to your industry and choose from a ton of different icons.

Picking the Right Colours

Don't let your personal preferences get above your brand, those can change over time! One thing that will remain constant is the meaning behind your colour. When you are creating a YouTube logo design, there is no such thing as "popular colours".
Youtube creators use a diverse spectrum of colours. Picking colour should capture the essence of what you’re doing, read about the psychology of colours and think about the emotions you want your Youtube Channel to evoke on your audience.

Your logo doesn’t have to be one plain colour. However, you don’t want to make it look like a bucket of paint just spilt (unless that's your brand). Our advice is to use up to three colours on your logo design. You should also avoid contrasting colours if you don’t want your design to look confusing.

How to choose your font

If you want to add text to your logo, use either your Youtube Channel name or a slogan. By doing so, you’ll make your channel easily associated with what you’re doing. Plus, you will keep your design clean.

However, picking the right font can be a confusing task since there's so many things to consider plus so many options! In our article “Top 20 Fonts for Logos in 2020”, we’ve covered some of the best Fonts you can use on your own Logo Design. Check out it for some great fonts.

When you are picking a font for your design, make sure it will remain easy to read when scaled down. Avoid fonts that turn your logo text into a blurry stain when you scale it down. The example above is great.


Don't forget to make it simple. Big brands like Apple, Coca-Cola and McDonalds have logo designs which are very easy to remember and quite simple. You shouldn't add too many elements to your logo design. Avoid clutter on your logo design.

If you have a text-based logo, it’s better to stick to one font to ensure readability. If you must visually separate your channel name from your slogan, you can use two fonts. However, make sure they match and are legible.
