Lower thirds for your video

Context is key. Text combined with graphical elements at the bottom of a screen, known as lower thirds, help convey information many videos need for storytelling. Documentaries, interviews, YouTube videos, and new broadcasts all benefit from this small yet powerful text. In addition to adding context, lower thirds can reinforce branding.

Lower third templates customized with stunning typography, compelling visuals, and animations keep this element on brand without distracting viewers. With no video editing or design experience, you can make visually-appealing lower thirds in a few clicks. This collection of free lower third templates has everything you need to get started!
