The Leander Show
Ladies and gentlemen, and everyone in between. Step right up! The greatest show on earth has arrived!
You might wonder “what the fuck is this loser talking about?”. Well, let me fill you in on what I have been doing the past couple weeks or so. I have been busy with rebranding my channel on Twitch. Like, a major rebrand! A total revamp moment. And it’s about freakin’ time. Late last year I had minor rebranding where I changed my Twitch handle from ‘ItsLeanderTV’ to ‘ItsLeanderWTF’. I was kind of in this place where I was in desperate need for a change, and I just couldn’t come up with anything fitting. I was genuinely stuck, and it was quite jarring. I wanted to get rid of the “TV” in my handle, because I started to think it’s lame to have “TV” in your handle. It may have been hip and cool like a decade ago, but not so much anymore… in my opinion. To anyone else who have it in their name, good for you.
Anyway, as I was saying I was stuck. I couldn’t come up with anything else. Also because my main handle ‘itsleander’, that I use for most of my socials, isn’t available for grabs on Twitch either. How dare someone have that name, right? So after a lot of thinking and brain-storming, I finally decided to change my Twitch handle to something that separates it from my socials. I mean it’s nice to have the same handle for everything, but it is what it is.
So, without any further ado, I proudly present to you: The Leander Show!
Thank you, thank you! You may take a seat!
It has taken me many hours to revamp the whole channel. It’s not just the title graphic and the panels that you see when you log on to my channel, it’s also every visual element you see during my actual stream. I had to change all the scenes and transitions, plus on-screen alers and stuff. Redoing and adding the on-screen chat window and webcam frames. It took me many hours and days of being glued to Photoshop, trying to get my vision out there. I wanted it to look fun, stunning, appealing and fresh. But I enjoy playing around with designing and create things in Photoshop. I am genuinely and utterly pleased with the final outcome. And I really hope you like the new look and vibe as well.
There you have it, The Leander Show. My new Twitch link is https://twitch.tv/TheLeanderShow and I have a feeling this one is for keeps for a very, very long time! Since the channel name and handle is separate from all my socials it is easier to change up the look, without having it match with everything else of me on the internet. It would be fun to change the entire look each year and make it its own thing. That way I can keep it up with being creative.
This coming Friday I will go live with the new design and look, and I am very thrilled about it. Genuinely! I can’t wait for all my viewers to see.
I have been streaming on Twitch for five years now, and I have been using my last stream layout, including the same logo of my name, for the last three years. There were some minor tweaks here and there throughout the last years, but this is the first major re-invention in a long, long time!
Anyway, that’s what I wanted to announce. Change is good. And I’m excited. And I hope you are too!
