Welcome to our insight on how to make the best podcasts logo to engage your potential listeners and let’s be honest if you will always have to get listeners to tune in for the first time so, we know the importance of grabbing the eye quickly from someone and draw them into to spending time listening to your podcast.
It doesnt matter if you host your podcast on Spotify podcast platform or on the Apple podcast platform you will no doubt want to have the best pocast possible, so we suggest spending some effort on your podcast artwork, so let’s jump right in!
How to create that killer podcast logo?
The answer to that question is relatively simply, as with most things in life you can do the work and creativeness yourself or outsource to a professional logo designer to quickly and effortlessly bring your ideas to life, so let’s take a look at both these options and see which suits you best!
Make your own podcasts logo.
If you consider yourself the creative type and have basic computer skills you may consider creating your own podcast artwork so you can design everything just the way you want to, for this, we suggest using CANVA.COM which is a fairly simple drag and drop system where you can design and play with the colours and fonts you like dependent on the branding and theme of your podcast, below are some requirements you will need to consider when designing your artwork.
Spotify Podcasts Logo Requirements:
Your spotify artwork must be a minimum of 1400 x 1400 pixels and no more than 3000 x 3000 pixels big and will need to use the RGB colour space and finally be no bigger than 0.5MB to upload to the Spotify podcast platform.
Apple Podcast Logo Requirements:
To upload your logo with Apple podcasts they prefer your logo size to be 3000 x 3000 pixels and to be in Jpg or Png format and be square, sounds nice and simple!
Google Podcast Logo Requirements:
The reuirements for Google are pretty much the same as the prior two, they prefer your logo to be 1400 x 1400 pixels, Square, using the RGB colour code and a minimum 72 DPI, your logo will be simple to upload via the Google podcasts app in a JPG or PNG format.
If you decide to get creative and design your own logo we highly recommend using Canva.com due to it’s simplicity & affordability.
Let a professional design your podcast artwork!
In a busy modern world, time is precious and our preferred way to create eye-catching is to let a talented professional bring our ideas to life, I personally like to focus on my strengths and outsource what eats up time to a pro that can do the job twice as good and for a small fee, theres no better feeling then popping on Fiverr.com ordering your gig and waiting for it’s fast arrival and receiving that awesome “Your gig has been delivered” notification.

How to make podcast cover art?
So you’ve got your podcast logo sorted and uploaded to your podcast platform. It’s time to figure what sort of podcast cover art you should go for. I suggest keeping you covart art along the same lines as your logo and really build a brand aroound your podcast. So people can identify very quickly that the podcast is yours.
Like designing your podcast logo there are two simply options for your podcast cover and podcast thumbnail. You can either create your own with canva.com or let a designer create the rest of your artwork through Fiverr.com. Both great, simple options before you upload your apple podcast logo to the platform or whichever hosting podcast platforms you so decide.
Whilst creating your pocast and everything that goes with it, remember to simply have fun and remain consistent to build up a strong and loyal following! Good luck…
