Your Twitch page says a lot about you. And it’s not just the info in your about section—the overall aesthetic of your page can have a huge impact on your success. Twitch panels give you the chance to show off a little bit of your personality through custom art, unique color palettes and flashy fonts.
In this blog, we’ll share some of our favorite examples of Twitch themes and panels to help you come up with the perfect look for your Twitch page—from vibrant, colorful and cartoony to sleek, modern designs.
What are Twitch Panels?
Every Twitch channel has an “About Me” panel where streamers post information about themselves and their channel, as well as links to relevant pages. In addition to a 300-character bio and links to your social channels, Twitch makes it easy to add additional sections or panels to your page.
However, a big wall of text isn’t exactly enticing to look at. While Twitch does support basic formatting, it does not support HTML, making custom images your best bet for an attractive and appealing about section.
Using basic graphic design software like Canva or PicMonkey, you can create your own custom images to use as Twitch panels. Or, you can create simple image headers to break up the text in your About Me section using dedicated Twitch panel makers like those from NerdOrDie and Visuals By Impulse.
How to Create a Theme for Your Twitch Channel
Your About Me section is often the first thing newcomers see when they visit your stream, so it’s best to make sure all of the most important info is easily available. In your channel bio, include a bit about which games you typically play, or what types of streams you like to create—such as Just Chatting, Food & Drink, or Fitness & Health.
When it comes to Twitch panels, it’s best to consistently use the same colors, fonts and images across each panel to brand your page. This helps create a professional look and makes it easy to quickly find key info.
There are plenty of different styles to choose from when creating custom Twitch panels. Let’s take a look at a few of our favorite pro streamers for some inspiration!
