Mascot vs Logo


Hello everyone and thanks for checking out this thread.So as the title say i am trying to make a new logo or mascot for my channel and I would like to know what do you think it looks nicer
1.An animal mascot (or something similar)
2.A logo with a letter
Just say what you like to see on youtube channels , mine is a gaming and commentaries channel btw
Personal preference. It's really for you to decide man! We can't make your branding decisions for you, but we can review any graphics you provide! :D
Depends on what you're marketing more. If the mascot is a big part of your videos and you have him animated in with him commentating, etc. then the mascot may be the better choice. If you are branding yourself more then maybe the letter. Depends on the brand you are building up
