It can seem daunting to design artwork for your podcast, especially if you aren’t a designer. That’s where we can help! We can’t design the artwork for you, but we have integrated with Canva to give you the tools to make some awesome artwork for your podcast!
Canva is a free graphic design tool that helps simplify the design process with an intuitive workspace that has over 250,000 free templates, stock photos, fonts, and customizable logos. We created the Canva Artwork Helper so you can use Canva without leaving Buzzsprout!
How to Use the Canva Artwork Helper
Head to the Podcast Info page within your account, and scroll down to the podcast artwork section and click Design with Canva. Within Canva, you can select a template and work with the individual elements to customize your artwork however you'd like! You can adjust the size, change the color, add your own shapes and designs, or remove a selection altogether. You can also add text, upload images, and organize your projects using the Folders tool.
Once you have your artwork designed in Canva you can click the Send to Buzzsprout button to upload the image directly to your Buzzsprout Podcast Info page. Now the artwork has been uploaded into Buzzsprout and you will be able to see a preview of it before you publish! Once your hit Save Podcast Info,you will see the new artwork next to the title in your Buzzsprout account. Remember, you can edit the artwork at any time to make changes!
Oh, and if you use this integration, your artwork is guaranteed to match the podcast industry guidelines for cover art! Check out this video for more on how to use Canva with Buzzsprout.
Pro Tip: You can use Canva for your Visual Soundbites, Episode Artwork, and Social Media posts! Check out this article for more on how to do that: Canva Artwork Templates
Note: Designs made through our integration aren't available in your regular Canva account, you will need to sign in to Canva via Buzzsprout for access to artwork created using the integration. However, if you create a design within your personal Canva account directly, then you can access it through the Canva button under the All Your Designs tab.
We hope this helps streamline the process of creating podcast artwork, but we know that questions can still come up. As always, feel free to reach out to our support team (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions!
