How To Create Persuasive YouTube Thumbnail Designs.

Anuj Bisht | 4th July 2017

If you are desgin a yYouTube thumbnail so before start designing do some research work like size of thumbnail and text size or some other requirement after that you can start designing it, the basic need of thumbnail is to show more and more text because the size of the thumbnail is small if you design in 100% view so the thumbnail is 25% view in YouTube so you have to create it for small size point of view as you know when you design this kind of small size design you have to take big font size or bold font it will help to make you text visible, try to use vector images or background if you are using the solid background then you can do one thing just cut the character and just paste in the thumbnail, if you are using graphics or live image you can do some basic things like take bold font put some drop shadow and if required put some outer glow for the visible point of view, if you are using live images then there is another way to highlight the text that is you just put a solid rectangle in tilt or any other good looking shape, try to use 3D design in the thumbnail it is more good looking and visible too, i preferred not to use only one image either it is vector or real image, merge more than one image to your design for look more creative and more attractive, place the text in one side of the thumbnail so that it can show clearly, put a border design to look good do it only if required, try to show your brand or product for more promotion and keep it clean once the user saw the thumbnail he or she will stop scrolling you can also put some bright color for the attraction point of view.


I hope it will help you.
