Frequently asked questions
Can I create more than one brand kit?
Yes. You can create one brand kit per space you work in. That means you can have one kit for your personal space and one brand kit for each of the teams you create.
Is there a limit on how many fonts, colors, and logos I can upload to my brand kit?
No, there is no limit. You can upload unlimited assets to your brand kit, but we suggest less is best.
Does the brand kit apply to my videos automatically?
Currently, you'll need to select fonts, colors manually, and logos from your brand kit to apply them to your videos. We hope to make these even easier to apply in the future.
