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.

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?

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. 🙂
