I need to design custom YouTube End Screen.

What's the standard size of Subscribe Circle and Video Rectangle?

Size of YouTube Subscribe Circle and Video Rectangle

    Just a comment: That is a lot to read! I didn't know what to look at first, and I didn't know what to click on. Take a look at some other YouTuber's end screens and copy their layout. Also, I have heard it is a lot easier to read if you divide the elements on the screen into 3 rows and 3 columns. You almost did that, but the column on the right has a different set of "rows" that don't match the middle column and the left column. (You could ask for help on the StackExchange community for graphic design.) Commented Sep 13, 2017 at 16:23
  • Is it possible to make this question appear on Graphic Design StackExchange without posting it there as a new thread?

  • I don't think so. Besides, you can ask your question in a way more related to graphic design! Like "This layout seems a little jumbled, but I can't figure out why. Any help?" (That's probably what I would write!) Commented Sep 14, 2017 at 16:45

When using brand identifiers such as the YouTube Logo, you want to check what guidelines the brand has on using their brand resources. A quick Google search yields the official Brand Resources guideline by YouTube. Here you will find all you need:

Minimum size

The word "YouTube" should always be easy to read. So in digital content the Logo should never appear smaller than 24dp in height.

The minimum size for applying the Logo in print is 0.125 in/3.1 mm in height.

Check the linked page for more details on the usage of the Logo.

Sidenote: Since YouTube belongs to Google, they use the terminology of Google's Material Design guidelines. dp stands for Density-independent pixels, you will find an explanation on that on the Material Design website.

  • I'm sorry if this is off-topic. Where can I ask about this?

  • @Clicker I wouldv'e said graphicdesign.SE, but I just noticed the screenshot you added, which helps in the understanding of your question ... I guess that makes it fit for this site after all. Guess that means my answer is besides the point, but you won't get a better one. There isn't a defined standard for that, it's a question of good design (so this question might still be a fit for graphicdesign.SE, but again, you won't get precise pixel values as an answer, a good answer for that question will always be it depends ...)

  • I don't think this is off topic or too broad, but there's a decent chance it is primarily opinion based. Either way, it's preferable not to answer if you feel a question is off topic. I know it goes against the desire we all have to help people, but it ultimately leads to people asking questions they know are off-topic simply because they know they'll still get an answer before it closes. The better bet is to comment to suggest where it should go (or even flag it for a moderator to move if it is a high enough quality question). It is ok to answer when suggesting migration though.

  • @AJHenderson With the screenshot the question definitely makes more sense, it wasn't there when I posted my answer and the text wasn't much to go on, I misinterpreted the question a bit. It's still a low effort question though, so I doubt it would qualify for migration (since afaik only high-quality questions should be migrated in any case). I guess as it stands now the question is acceptable and my answer still applies to some extent, so I'll retract my vote.

  • @MoritzLost I was more commenting on the "don't answer if you don't think it fits" side of things. It's something I know a lot of people do early on because they want to be helpful (believe me, I want to do it too), but the consensus is generally that it ends up being counter productive in the long run.
