    Hello Podcasting Pals!~ I’m launching my podcast called Lake Ontario Dreams and in the last parts of wrapping up the launch. I think I’m about 2-3 weeks out to releasing the first 5 episodes and website… The podcast is focused on sharing the stories of people who live and love Lake Ontario. ‘Places to Go & People to Know on L. Ontario’ —

    Anyhow– I focused on all the tech stuff and now finally started working on the cover art. I’ve read in the FB group and heard in the Q&A to keep the design simple. I’d really be so very grateful for any feedback on these designs. Knowing they will be very small on Libsyn ect I thought of my target audience- and kept the lake images prevalent with just the title… but I do wonder if its too light/dark, vague ect…

    Thanks so very much and I look forward to learning from your comments!

    Cheers to YOU.

    Melanie –

    What a fantastic idea for a podcast! I’ve drawn an arrow to the image I like best. I think it will pop nicely amid all the other artwork, and I think that more rounded font is more dreamy/whimsical than the other super bold one.

    You’re right, you don’t want too much copy on the cover art, however I do think you need a 3 or 4 word tagline to clarify what the topic will be – it’s a bit vague with only the title. I would include the word ‘stories’ in the tagline – people LOVE stories. 🙂 You could make the tagline legible even at a small size if it’s only 3 or 4 words – probably all caps.

    I hope that helps.

    Best of luck!

      thank you so much Stacee for the recommendations! It always helps to have someone look over stuff— what do you think of this one?

    Melanie,

    I can’t see the new one. Can you upload it again and I’ll take a look.

    Yes!!!! The top one (with the rocks) for sure. Also, I wouldn’t worry about including the word podcast on the art, as that’s just a waste of space for an image that is showing up inside of a podcast player, however you could add that word (rather small and in a basic san-serif font), just on the images that will be going on social media. I love it! Best of luck. 🙂
