Description

As we deconstruct more and more podcast graphic design, the course will grow in value. With each added lecture, the price of the course will go up accordingly.

I encourage you to sign up now as you'll have lifetime access to current and future tutorials.

First we navigate the podcast store to provide examples on what works and what doesn't in podcast show art design.

Once we have a good idea of what to create, we start a new file in Photoshop and mimic the design principles of the top shows. While mimicking we will learn the use of design elements like:

  • Masking
  • Gradients
  • Color Pallets
  • Negative Space
  • The Less is More Principle
  • How to Design with the Platform in Mind
  • How to take drawings and turn them into digital art

Finally, we'll create a personalized standout show art.

You can use it for your portfolio or your podcast.

This course is fast, fun and funny. I cut out the fat. If it's not going to make you laugh or learn, it's not here. That's why the course is so short.

Join in, let's get started.

Who is the target audience?
  • People Who Want to Think in Terms of Designing World Class Graphics.
  • If You have a Podcast, This is a Great Way to Improve It
  • No Nazis. Nazis will be immediately removed from the course.
