Introducing: Maker Brands!


We’re thrilled to share a game-changing new feature in Maker, exclusive to our members on Storyblocks for Business plans.

Maker Brands allows organizations to set their own colors, fonts, and logos for all users on their team to access.  Once Brands are created, anyone in the organization can apply them to their projects within the editor with just one click. 

Maker was designed specifically to empower users of all skill-levels to create more video, without boundaries. With Maker Brands, everyone on a team can create more on-brand videos, quickly and with confidence!  

Read on to learn how team admins can get started with Maker Brands.


Admins can create a new Brand for your organization from 2 locations:

 

1. Within “My Brands”

  • Select your Brand fonts (or upload your own custom fonts), primary and secondary font colors, video and image overlay tints, and upload your logos (up to 10 logos per brand)
  • Within your “My Brands” page, you can manage, edit or delete any Brands that you have created
  • Save your Brand to allow anyone in your organization to view and apply that Brand to their projects!

2. Within the editor
