A few weeks ago, we introduced Individual Assets which basically means we are adding more to our website to better suit the needs of all streamers, no matter the size. Since then, we have received a lot of feedback explaining that users would really appreciate panels more than anything. With our free overlays, many users are left with no graphics for their panels. We took this into consideration and created a free panel pack that would correspond well with any of our free overlays. You can download them here.
Know this bit of information, we knew we would have to focus on panels before we started focusing on premium overlays and complete packages. Like most businesses on the market, our customers come first. We strive to do the most we can to make sure everyone that visits our website is not only happy, but know’s exactly what they are getting.
Designing a Different Kind of Panel
One of our main goals with this panel set was designing something that you never see on streaming websites. Everyone seems to have the same style panels and we wanted to provide something that was truly unique. Something that added flair to your channel. Something that was eye catchy.
The one thing that needed to be incorporated into the design was having dimension. Yes, it’s 2017, and the design meta in today’s design world is flat, but we wanted something that was modern with dimension. Something that looked amazing, but popped off the page.
Believe it or not, the longest part of this design process was creating the perfect background. After the basic shape of the panel was created, it just seemed too flat. Even after making the left size pop up. With the main colors we selected, it looked like water you would see on the horizon during the morning sunrise.
Right then and there, we figured out the name of the package, as well as the subtle wave/sunray background. From this, Morning Glory was spawned!
Doing Something Different
When designing premium packages of any kind, we are always presented with the challenge of choosing the perfect color combinations. We understand every channel has a different color theme, but designing packages in each color is near impossible, let alone very time-consuming.
We wanted to give customers the ability to use every color possible. Instead of creating specific generic colors which could possibly be a different hue than your color, we decided to do things a bit different, which also allowed us to keep the product more affordable.
When you purchase Morning Glory, you will receive a download that includes an editable source file (.PSD/Photoshop) that allows you to input the text how you wish, as well as the font/text. In the download, we also included a text file with recommended fonts and colors. Inside the source file, there are all the basic icons for any panel you may need (social media, donation, subscribe, follow, about, specs, etc…).
Since we did not need to create different folders with different colors and panels, this allowed us to give you more customizability for a more affordable price. Of course, if you do not have Photoshop, we can create the panel graphics for an extra fee of $2. Just let us know in the checkout notes and we will send you an invoice.
We hope this is a premium package you can get behind and we look forward to seeing this around the gaming scene. If you have any recommendations on how we can make our services better, or even design ideas, please let us know in the comment section. We would love to hear from you!
