ANCHOR TEAMS UP WITH UNSPLASH FOR NEW COVER ART CREATOR
Having beautiful, eye-catching cover artwork for your podcast is one the most impactful ways you can get it heard by new listeners. This shouldn’t come as a surprise. After all, if you’ve ever browsed through albums at a record store, or stacks of books at the library, you’ve probably chosen something new just because of how awesome it looked. But if you don’t happen to be an experienced photographer or designer, that shouldn’t hold you back from having great cover art that shows off your podcast’s personality and gets it discovered.
Here’s how it works:
Find your image. Choose a photo from the Unsplash library by searching for the keyword(s) relevant to your podcast. Once you pick the one you like best, you can zoom and crop the image however you like. (You can also, of course, upload your own image.)
Style your text. Now you can add your podcast’s title to the image with a custom design. You can get creative with text options, by customizing the font, shape, placement, and color of your podcast title.
There are endless ways to design your cover art, and great inspiration is right in front of you! Open up the ‘Listen’ section of the Anchor app to browse some of their favorite podcast covers.
Share your art with #AnchorxUnsplash
Over the next week, all podcast cover art made with the Cover Art Creator and shared on Twitter or Instagram with #AnchorxUnsplash will be considered for a feature! Anchor and Unsplash will be selecting the very best 10 podcast covers and promoting their respective podcasts on social to get you in front of even more new listeners.To try it out and give your podcast a brand new look, just pop into your Anchor settings on iPhone, iPad, Android, or web and hit the “Update Cover Art” button. (Note that you may need to set up your podcast before seeing this option.)
