What is the best font for YouTube banners?

Here are a few great fonts you can use: Impact, Bebas, Roboto, Bangers, Badaboom BB, Budmo, Anton, Lilita One, Ultra, or Fire Sans Extra Bold. Your YouTube banner background is the first thing a user will see when they land on your channel’s homepage, so you want to make sure you use a font that’s legible and stands out. When picking your font, make sure it fits your video content’s style and your brand.

Can YouTube banners be animated?

No, it's not possible to animate this types of banners. YouTube changed the supported file types for channel banners, which means that you can still upload a GIF file as a YouTube channel art, but it will be displayed as a static image.
