A podcast cover is not the same thing as a logo.
The best comparison for your podcast cover is to compare a podcast cover to an album cover or cd cover.
A podcast cover is going to be what iTunes (and other marketplaces) display to represent your podcast.
Your podcast cover is, therefore, the first impression your potential subscriber will see of your podcast.
Here’s what you should consider to include with your request:
The size of your podcast cover should depend on where you’re going to use it. Here are the most common sizes:
iTunes: 1400 x 1400 or 3000 x 3000 (recommended)
The style of your podcast cover should communicate at first glance your brand, it should also catch people attention and stand out in the crowd.
You can include your logo, your image, headlines, the podcast author(s) name(s) or anything that you’d prefer. Our recommendation is to keep it short. Include in your request the exact things that you’d like to see on your podcast cover.
