With YouTube moving into the vertical video market with YouTube Shorts, now is a great time to jump on while the platform is still quite new and not as crowded as it will be in a few years.
The best way to make a good impression is by using one of these professionally designed vertical video templates from Envato Elements. Although many of them were originally designed for Instagram Stories, they'll also work perfectly as vertical videos for YouTube Shorts.

Instagram Stories | FCPX
Make an impression on YouTube with these bold, colourful video templates. They embrace the fun, informal side of YouTube Shorts, while maintaining a professional aesthetic as well.

Whereas the previous template was all about the bright colours, this one has a much darker aesthetic. But as you can see from the preview, it's certainly very effective. Sometimes, simple, high-contrast white-on-black or gold-on-black text can be the best way to make your message stand out.
