Hi! I'm looking for thumbnail cover art for a new podcast called "The Human Derek Podcast." It needs to be high end enough that people will feel like it has a lot of value in it. I will place below the idea behind the design but would also like someone creative to really inject their artistic style into it. Thank you!
The podcast is considered a personality podcast, so having a photo or image of me somehow seems to make sense. I have included some photos but also if you look at my social media or google me maybe you see one that makes more sense and I can upload it later. Derek LaCrone. The photos I attached would need to be cropped and maybe put into black and white or something once I'm cropped out? Or just made to look better in general. I also like how Joe Rogan just has a light sketch of his face on the cover art and Gary Vaynurchuk has his figure cut out and imposed on the art.
The general color palette = blue, with shades of blue although I don't know the types, I have seen an Egyptian blue, maybe steel blue, blues which have contrast and are refined.
Text: The Human Derek Podcast ("the" can be optional)
An apple and an arrow.
The arrow going through the apple pointing to the top right.
I like the idea of having a golden arrow. Not sure if the apple should be gold as well. If they can both be gold, that could be pretty cool. Maybe in the background in 3d but hey you're the artist :)
The arrow and apple have symbolism. The arrow is for truth and justice and direction, and the apple represents human knowledge.
Here's info from Apple Podcasts requirements: a minimum size of 1400 x 1400 pixels and a maximum size of 3000 x 3000 pixels, 72 dpi, in JPEG or PNG format with appropriate file extensions (.jpg, .png), and in the RGB colorspace.
I'm really looking forward to working with the right person on this! It will represent me in front of many people and is really important to me. Thank you very much! :)
