Lens branding guidelines

  • The recommended logo placement is on the top left or top right under the UI elements
  • Snapchat adds a 'SPONSORED' slug to the creative. This appears for only 2 seconds and doesn't show in users' Snaps
  • With Lens Web Builder anyone can create an AR experience in minutes using hundreds of our free objects and animations.
