I have a YouTube channel called Native Explorer. You can check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/NativeExplorer
I need to make a distinctive cover photo and a channel icon that will illustrate my channel’s content and encourage people to SUBSCRIBE.
A little about my channel: my channel has VLOGs , Travel Recommendations, shopping, food, fashion, and action sport from around the world.
I want my cover photo to encompass all of that content. I was thinking of a montage of activities. On the one hand I want the cover photo to include me with the tripod and camera (images provided), my channel logo, and as many activities as possible. On the other hand, I want an elegant and professional design. So I guess the designer who can find the right balance will win.
Please be familiar with YouTube cover photo and channel icon guideline here:
I created a zip file with images of all of the channel activities.
Please download it from here:
Zip direct download: http://www.motikashi.com/resources/…Assets.zip
Zip google drive: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bw…sp=sharing
Dropbox Folder: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ekqs1of0…jLFua?dl=0
The zip file contains 5 folders:
1. AI of the channel logo (and other formats). Needless to say, it must be included.
2. Images of myself with a tripod and camera. Choose anyone you like. Cut me out (with the tripod and the camera) and place on the cover photo. A good example is Casey Neistat channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/caseyneistat).
3. Activities. Give priorities for the activities with the * sign. Let your artistic creativity blossoms.
4. Additional Activities: if you don’t have enough or you like something that you think is a good fit for your work, feel free to use these additional activities also.
5. This is a psd template released by YouTube for the cover photo. Start with this psd template.
Please make the design of the cover photo integrate well with the channel icon and the social media buttons on the bottom right. I am not sure what I want as a channel icon, so ideas will be great and I am counting on your artistic creativity.
I will make a video about how to make a cool cover photo for YouTube. So I will also mention and promote the winning designer as bonus.
Please include all psd/ai files.
