When we first launched Live Overlays in the Summer of 2016, our main focus was catering towards those starting their live streams. We wanted to provide professional graphics at an affordable price, as well as have a free section for those that are unable to invest financially into their hobby. While this still stands true today, we have received a few recommendations regarding our designs and services.
We are happy to announce that starting today, we will be providing more assets for those looking to take their streaming career to the next level!
If you take a look around the website, you’ll notice we have changed our navigation up a bit. Previously, we had an area called Free which included several gaming overlays. While this page has generated hundreds of downloads, it doesn’t truly give a streamer that much flexibility with their stream. Having only a game overlay doesn’t give potential new followers the feel of professionalism. Not only is that our opinion, but it’s also the opinion of hundreds more who have given us feedback throughout the last year.
Let’s Make Panels
Starting today, we are introducing our very first individual asset: Panels. When we create custom overlays, we love to create the gaming overlay first. This allows us to set the tone of the entire design and atmosphere of the brand. Once we finalize the game overlay design, our next design process is the panels. We feel that the game overlay and panel section is the most important when visiting a stream.
Previously, you were only able to receive our panels through Premium Packages or Custom Packages, which hasn’t been ideal for those limited on funds and only needing panels. Over the next few days, we will be designing free panels that match well with our free overlays.
Naturally, we will be adding more panels over time, with the inclusion of Premium Panels for those looking for something a bit more pleasing to the eye.
Previously, if you wanted a specific color overlay in our free section, you had to download the corresponding color you wanted to receive. If an effort to help centralize all our designs, as well as make the experience better for every user, we have included all the colors in your download.
For example: If you wish to download our Free Overlay called Accent in red, you just need to download Accent and you will receive that overlay in red, as well as every other color specified on that design page.
We feel this will simplify the flow of our website and make it less confusing when searching the design you wish to use.
We are thrilled at today’s announcement, however, it’s just a small introduction in the grand scheme of things to come. We have huge plans for the year 2017.
To outline a few, we plan on releasing more assets to better suit the needs of all streamers. We are currently in the process of creating a backend portal for all affiliates/partners. This is just the beginning and only a snippet into what we can share with you.
Thank you for all the support and feedback given throughout 2016. Here’s to an awesome 2017!
