Help me make a new podcast icon

    When I started the podcast I made a quick and dirty podcast icon:

    [​IMG]

    I have a bit of a problem on myspace. People there, to put it politely, are perhaps less attentive than they should be so people are assuming that I'm Roy Harper despite my profile making it quite clear that I'm not. This has led to the chocolate lady incident, the upside of which is an intriguing invitation from Tracy but I really should try to stop it from happening (see http://www.myspace.com/royharperpodcast to see what I mean... :smilielol5:)

    I'm not talented with graphics design. If anyone is, would they like to have a go at designing a new one? If I use your design I'll give you a spiffy forum custom title. The icon must be readable at 170x170 pixels and above (it'll get scaled differently by myspace, iTunes, and the web site here) and should contain the text "The Roy Harper Podcast".

    Paul.

    Spliffs for pixies?!

    Love your Podcasts [1,2&3] Paul... keep up the good work... don't know how you have the time to be honest.. bit worried about your alleged frangible mental state and biting your nails when Stormcock New did not arrive in the post recently.... you certainly don't sound that insecure as a commentator and definitely not an anoraky type... have you tried train spotting on the Hampshire steam tracks or watching model boats down canoe lake Southsea recently all day?


    aw:biggrin:

    I'd be happy to do others if you don't like that one. Give me some pointers if you've any specifics in mind.

    Hi Adam,

    It's really neat! It may not get around the problem of people thinking that the user on myspace is Roy, but I don't think that'll happen unless I stop using images of Roy... and on reflection I do think it needs a picture. You've made the "podcast" bit larger which I think is an excellent idea.

    Are you able to provide me with scaled versions (just to be awkward), 300x300 and 170x170 (as you already did). The 300x300 version gets used inside iTunes and in the mp3 tags. If I just blow up the one you posted it'll probably get a bit pixelly.

    Nice work mate. What do you want your title to be...? :)

    Oops. Thinking you only needed a 170x170, that was all I saved! (I really must start reading things properly). However, I've blown it up and added a little white frame for the 300x300 and it looks OK:

    Title? Hmmm, possibly In A Beautiful Rambling Mess, but let me consult my 'Passions' tomorrow and I'll get back to you!

    Thanks and Nnight. :closedeyes:

    Marcie I've got a zappy little nappy

    And the confusion is two-fold!

    Anyone notice that someone left Roy a comment on his MySpace page thanking *him* for posting the podcasts? :rofl:

    Oh yes, so they did! I still think I got the better end of the deal with the chocolate lady though :)

    Now the picture at the start of this thread has changed, the whole thing must be rather puzzling to people!!

    Confusion is my epitaph...

    Many thanks again Adam (in case people are confused, the original changed to Adam's new one because I replaced the old one on the server with the new one...)
