This is a design for the logo of my upcoming PODCAST, so there are some specific parameters and things that are needed:
1) The logo will need to be a 1400 x 1400 pixel image (which means it must be a SQUARE dimension design). This image should also be readable at much smaller sizes. Many Podcast directories and portable media players will automatically shrink the larger image size to fit smaller areas, so it if looks good at 1400 x 1400, but not at 300 x 300 (for example), then it’s not going to work very well. Some devices shrink the size to as little as 73 x 73 pixels. Personally, I’d optimize it for 150 x 150 – if it looks good at that size, then it should read perfectly everywhere else. SO PLEASE VIEW THE IMAGES YOU ARE CREATING IN THESE DIFFERENT SIZES TO MAKE SURE THEY LOOK GOOD IN ALL DIFFERENT PIXEL SIZES.
2) In addition to the one (1) 1400 x 1400 pixel image, I will need the same image in a Different filename at 300 x 300 pixels.
3) I will want both jpeg and png formats delivered, as well as .ai or whatever editing program file you use.
Notes on the design of the logo:
Keep in mind that this will be a Business Advice Podcast for Healthcare businesses (Physiotherapy, Medical, Chiropractic, etc), so you may want to incorporate design elements that convey these things and give it that "feel"
I would highly suggest going to the iTunes podcast section to look at the most popular podcast logos/artwork
I uploaded a 3/4 body-length photo of me to use. It is NOT necessary to include all of my body from the uploaded image ... for example: if it would look best to just use the head or the chest up portion of the image, that is fine (and perhaps much preferable depending on your design).
I want the podcast logo to look inviting, clean and professional; incorporating my image as well as the podcast name and slogan.
I would also like it to have the text: "with Jarod Carter DPT" ... this should probably be in a different (less formal) font, and creatively placed (possibly even written at an angle instead of perfectly horizontal like the rest of the text)
