Having a specific game-themed panel design, such as Fortnite, is a very popular choice for many Twitch streamers, as this brings your content and channel aesthetic together.
This shows viewers specifically what to expect from your channel and identify instantly whether that particular channel is the right choice for them.
Having a set theme is a perfect way to grow your brand, fan base and potentially progress into twitch affiliate status.
Icons are a clear and concise way of grabbing attention as well as adding color to your Twitch panels. You can make your panels stand out by adding flair and color to make your icons unique.
Adding social media icons to your panel is also a great eye-catcher, having recognizable icons such as Facebook and Twitter can instantly draw your audience’s attention. This helps prompt them to follow your other platforms, growing your brand.
Whether they are colorful, minimal or sleek, it all depends on what you want your channel brand to represent.
Shaped & unique
Twitch panels don’t specifically have to be the classic rectangle, they can vary in shape or size depending on your style. Switching up your panel shape can have a huge positive impact on the aesthetic of your channel.
