Out West is a podcast about true crimes that happened during the Old West era. When designing a visual identity for podcasts the focus is mainly on the logo and typography and less on the background. You want it to be simple because the identity will be used in small formats, as most people listen to podcasts on their smart phones. The type in the logo is in a western type font to show off that era. And the bloody hand symbolizes crime. Where as the background is quite dark and gloomy, yet there is not to much going on so it doesn’t take too much attention from the logo. Instead it compliments the logo.
