Apple Podcasts has changed the requirements for podcast artwork

Up until the release of iOS 17, you could upload podcast artwork anywhere from 1400px by 1400px to 3000px by 3000px. Now it’s just the latter dimension that’s supported.

To ensure you don’t run into any issues when uploading either podcast artwork or episode artwork, keep these details in mind:

  • square image
  • 3000px by 3000px
  • jpeg or png
  • max 1MB file size

So what better time to review your podcast artwork and podcast title!

When it comes to creating podcast artwork, selecting the right colors and fonts is crucial for effectively conveying your brand identity and capturing your audience’s attention. Let’s explore some tips on color psychology in design and font selection to help you make the best choices.

Color psychology in design and font selection

Color psychology plays a significant role in influencing people’s emotions, perceptions, and associations. Different colors evoke different feelings. It’s important to choose colors that align with your podcast’s theme or message.

To help you make the best choices, consider:

  • Blue: Often associated with trust, calmness, and reliability.
  • Green: Symbolizes growth, harmony, nature, and health.
  • Red: Represents energy, passion, excitement, or urgency.
  • Yellow: Conveys optimism, happiness, or warmth.
  • Purple: Implies creativity or luxury.

How do you want your audience to feel when they see your artwork? Select the colors accordingly.

Font selection is equally important

Here are a few tips for choosing fonts, to help you communicate the tone of your podcast visually:

  • Legibility: Opt for fonts that are easy to read at various sizes on different devices.
  • Consistency: Ensure consistency by using one or two complementary fonts throughout all of your branding materials.
  • Reflecting Your Brand Personality: Choose a font that aligns with the personality of your podcast; whether it’s playful, casual, professional, formal, friendly, approachable, etc.

It can be helpful to research popular podcasts within similar genres for inspiration on color usage and font styles that resonate well with listeners.

Lastly but significantly, keep in mind the importance of maintaining brand identity through visuals across different platforms such as social media profiles or website banners.

Utilize consistent visual elements like color palettes and typography styles across these platforms. This will help reinforce recognition and marketing efforts to retain and attract potential listeners. Remember that while colors and fonts are essential elements in creating compelling podcast artwork; they should also reflect your unique style while appealing to your target audience.
