Hi designers AND artists!!
Welcome. I need an AMAZING piece of COVER ART!!
My name is Fi, and I am creating a weekly podcast to be located in iTunes.
The podcast name is:
Natural Birth: HERstory
The show is all about natural birthing (hospital-free, drug-free) and features interviews with women who have birthed naturally, along with experts in the field (midwives, doulas, doctors). The information in the show will be delivered through storytelling. Hence the word "HERstory", instead of "history". The show aims to re-frame the message that has been perpetuated in the west, that childbirth is dangerous and painful. Traditionally, history has been written by males. "HERstory" is history through the female perspective. By sharing real stories from women that have given birth outside the hospital environment, and drug free, I believe we can inform pregnant women that there are alternative options for childbirth, and encourage them to decide for themselves how they want to give birth. This show is all about empowering women to take back the birthing experience into their own hands.
It is important that the designer understands why I have chosen this title, and takes into consideration the message of this show, throughout the design process.
The logo is to be the cover art image of the podcast when it appears in iTunes.
The logo must include the shows title.
The minimum picture size is 1,400 X 1,400 pixels and the maximum image size is 2,048 X 2,048 pixels.
I have uploaded some images to give you a guideline for what I am looking for.
I have an image in my mind: the smooth outline of a pregnant woman squatting, about to give birth, big full belly. One hand holding the bottom of the belly, the other hand on the top. Head looking upwards, mouth open in pleasure, eyes closed, beautiful hair flowing.
Image #1 is a rough sketch of this idea.
I want flowers in the belly to symbolise the blossoming of the baby and the mother. Flowers must either be white Lily's or a lotus. Flowers may or may not appear around the mother as well.
The (updated) pantone colors are the tones I want used in the cover art. (They were found on [login to view URL])
Please see the "apple blossom families" image for the use of colours. I also like this font. Simple.
The other images are for inspiration and to show you the kinds of styles and simplicity I like.
The purple image called "Bumi" (a mother birthing a baby) is for inspiration but must not be copied, as it is a logo belonging to a natural birthing centre.
The flower images are for inspiration only. Be creative.
The word "HERstory" does not have to be in capitals, as long as the "HER" stands out.
The images of fonts are examples I like.
Feel free to come up with your own design also, as I may like it even more. But what I have described is what I picture. I would design it myself except that I am a mother to an infant and I literally don't have free hands!
The image must be bold so that it is memorable in iTunes. SIMPLE and BEAUTIFUL.
I will also require a favicon image. So if the chosen logo is too detailed for favicon, I will need a more simple, modified version for favicon.
The logo must be vectorised.
Please post on the clarification board ANY questions!
And above all, have fun creating!!
Thank you all so much for your efforts and creative ideas! I'm excited to see what you come up with :)
