Here’s the evolution of my podcast logo.
Some short lessons from doing it myself:
- Reiteration leads to confidence.
By removing the unnecessary bits, you leave space for your personality.
- Basic is better.
Most fonts look terrible. Think of it this way: everyone else wastes time looking for the perfect font, and you spend 3 seconds selecting Sans Whatever. Remember the Avatar poster fiasco?
- Technique > fancy
Fancy is futile. Anyone with enough money can slap a fancy effect on a design or video. Technique shows attention to detail. A love of technique means a love of the craft. For example, Matt D’Avella. 3 million subscribers. Few fancy effects. All technique.
Reiterate. Reiterate. Reiterate.
Big thanks to LLA for sketching my head.
