Pandemic in Philly Video Podcast Branding

In September 2021 I designed the cover art for Pandemic in Philly: COVID Conversation Series, a video podcast series.

The COVID Podcast Series

The Pandemic in Philly is a YouTube podcast series produced by the National Nurse-Led Care Consortium. The series covers COVID case and vaccine data in the Greater Philadelphia Area: Philadelphia, Delaware, Chester, Montgomery, and Bucks counties in Pennsylvania.


Although this series was primarily designed for video, we made adjustments to the production process to allow Pandemic in Philly to be published as an audio podcast in addition to video. With this in mind I started the visual design process with the podcast thumbnail cover art. This allowed me to create a number of graphic assets that could be reformatted and repackaged for social media graphics, audiograms, and YouTube thumbnails. You can see examples of some of these under the podcast cover art below.
