Introduction to Brand Configuration

Before you begin working on the individual scenes in a program, we recommend that you first create your brand configuration based on your brand guidelines. A brand configuration includes the following components:

  • A logo
  • A theme that defines the overall look and feel of the video experience
  • Colors that are used for the various theme components (background, text, button, and accents)
  • Text styles that are used for the on-screen text in the program scenes

A brand configuration is applied to every program that you create. You can apply the same brand configuration to many programs.

Your account comes with one default brand configuration but you can create as many brand configurations as you need. Generally speaking, you may decide to have a main brand configuration that you use for most of your programs and then create additional brand configurations as needs arise.
Following are examples of scenarios that may require a new brand configuration:

1.

You are creating a program for the holiday season that requires a different logo than your company's standard logo.

2.

You are creating a program for Black Friday deals. In order to differentiate the videos from others, you need to use a different logo and colors. 

3.

In one of your programs, you want to make changes to some of the colors.

Warning:

As mentioned above, a brand configuration can be applied to more than one program. If you edit a brand configuration, any change you make will affect both the program you are currently working on as well as all programs (in draft mode) using the same brand configuration. We therefore recommend proceeding with caution.
