Setting up your Brand Profile makes it easy to create assets for your production that match your brand. Your Brand Profile can include:

  • A Logo

  • Up to three Brand Colors

When creating new assets from the built-in Switcher Studio templates, you can apply your Brand Profile with one tap. You can also choose to automatically apply your Brand Profile when working with Cards.

You can set up and edit your Brand Profile in the Switcher Studio online Dashboard or directly in the Switcher Studio iOS app. You do not have to set it up in both places.
