Artist Opportunity: Graphics Templates

Pssst, visual artist! Buyers love our Graphics Templates. Using your customizable graphics templates elevates their content and saves time and effort. Heroic much? This year, events like the midterm elections and the Commonwealth esports championships will drive up demand—here’s how to meet it.


1. Logo Reveal

A logo reveal helps introduce a brand by applying preset effects to the logo. They appear at the beginning or end of a sequence, most often on Youtube and Twitch. Think simple glow effects, shape animations, and beyond!

2. Openers and Intros

Buyers know to go big or go home! Openers, or intro sequences, consistently rank in our top 20 searched keywords, making this a rich opportunity. These sequences should capture attention from the get-go, so the bolder, the better.

3. Lower Thirds

The lower third is a graphic overlay placed at the bottom of the screen—think sports score counts, Twitch streams, and breaking headlines in news segments. These visual devices are guaranteed to come in handy before Midterms Elections and upcoming political events worldwide!

8. Mockups

Mock-ups show designs as if they were in a realistic environment, such as on a phone or computer screen. Artists provide full-size images or clips of display devices and, using compositing programs like Photoshop or After Effects, include light layers for slick, realistic appeal. The buyer uses this file to place their work ‘on’ the screen.
