I need podcast cover art for my podcast, The Artisan Food & Drink
Business Show. I will use the artwork to list my podcast in various
podcast libraries and apps, e.g., iTunes.
The image should be:
Optimized for 150 x 150 px.
Sharp and readable in a range of sizes from 2048 x 2048 px full scale
and down to as small as 150 x 150 px. This is because the artwork will
be viewed on a range of devices including iPhones, iPads, iPods,
laptops and regular computer screens.
REQUIREMENTS SPECIFIED BY iTUNES
iTunes has the following specific requirement for the artwork: The
final file must be a minimum of 1400 x1400 px to 2048 x 2048 px at 72
DPI or more, JPG. The image should be optimized for 150 x 150 px. The
colour space is RGB only. Not CMYK, 8-bit indexed or transparent. The
artwork cannot contain pixelation, artifacts, high-contrast background
art, or blurry or hard crops (unless stylistic).
A JPG file for iTunes.
All source files including the original editable file for any future
A high-resolution print file at 300 dpi.
A file that enables me to use the artwork on social media.
A file with the artwork in a vector/scalable format.
OBJECTIVES OF THE ARTWORK
To get noticed, to ‘pop’, to spark interest and make my audience
want to start listening to the podcast.
To communicate in an instant what my show is about.
