ZackReiser got their new podcast by running a design contest:
Millennial theatre nerds looking for fun podcast cover art all to do with Broadway history
Check out ZackReiser's Podcast contest…
Entertainment & The Arts
Theatrely is the latest news source for Broadway, writing for the people who sit in the mezzanine and above. We are young, and fresh, and ready for the change our industry needs to make it inclusive for all, and so does our readership. Our target audience is in their early 20s to early 30s and has a big passion for all things theatre, in New York and around the world.
What's your vision?
We are starting a new podcast called "On The House" that will talk about the history of the 41 Broadway theatres from construction to modern day! We're looking for something that's going to attract our target audience and tells them exactly what they're in for. The podcast format is going to have to main sections: one section where two cohosts talk about this history of the theatre (when it was built, who built it and why, and the interesting shows that have played there) and a second section where the hosts bring on a special guest who is currently performing at the theatre or has performed there in the past to talk about what it's like on stage and backstage. We need square podcast art to go on the major podcast subscription sites that's 3,000 px by 3,000 px at 72dpi. Totally open to creativity here whether the cover type includes a pictographic logo specifically for the podcast or whether that's just incorporated in a logotype, and any sort of themes and coloring are very open as well. The only requirement is that our Theatrely "T" logo (the off-white T with the thick orange and thin off-white outlines) gets placed somewhere in a corner of the artwork, which I will be attaching to this brief. Here's some feedback I've already given to other designers if you are interested in submitting some designs: This is a podcast about live theatre on Broadway, so any references to film reels, movie marquees, snacks, etc. don't have to do with Broadway so let's try and stay away from those as much as possible. The designs I'm liking so far tend to have striking sans-serif fonts and bold color choices. In terms of integrating the "T" logo feel free to ignore most of the orange background, and just work on the white T outline and everything inside that. I also tend to prefer that on the smaller side and in the bottom right corner if that helps anyone in terms of structure and where to place it. Also none of these designs need to have the word "podcast" in there. Our subtitle is "Broadway Theatres from Construction to Today" so if you want to try to incorporate that in there that's fine, but totally not a requirement at all, I just want to give that to you for some inspiration. I would love to see some directions that incorporate the fact that the podcast is going to span a large time of history, the first Broadway theatre still standing was built in 1903 so we're talking more than 100 years here! Maybe something a-la WandaVision's artwork where it transitions from black and white to color could be cool to signify that, but totally let your creativity flow. If you're looking to go in a more marquee looking direction I would urge you to look up what some of the Broadway theatre marquees look like (particularly the Shubert Theatre on 44th Street, the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on 45th Street, the Richard Rodgers Theatre on 46th Street, or the Longacre Theatre on 47th Street) and take inspiration from those rather than things that lean more towards movies. I would also like to avoid using a stage and red velvet curtains as much as possible, it’s very overdone for my industry, and of you were thinking of going in that direction I’d rather you look up some of the marquees I mentioned and go for that instead.
Feel free to have fun with it! This is a podcast we're hoping young millennials and those on the millennial/gen-z cusp are going to enjoy listening to so as long as the cover art speaks to them and what shows the podcast is about then have at it.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their podcast.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
ZackReiser collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected 2 winners!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
