Simplecast


Simplecast is a modern independent podcast hosting and analytics platform. The service provides podcasters with industry-leading publishing, distribution, analytics, and sharing tools. 

While head of design, I executed a complete rebrand and redesign of the platform. I oversaw a small design team and was responsible for all creative aspects of the brand and product in addition to collaborating closely with the product and engineering teams. 

The product includes a full podcast management web app, custom site templates, detailed analytics, three responsive embeddable players, and more. 

The brand and design system blends a bold visual aesthetic with a fun and conversational voice, composed of bold typography and a visual art direction based on montaged arrangements. The vintage stock imagery and collages capture podcasting’s often quirky, irreverant tone and variety of subject matter. 

Redesign launched February 2019.
