Featured on Episode 1
We original connected over dog photos on Instagram and ended up following one another (for the dog pictures).
When I started making zines about pets called YOUR PET ZINE...
I asked Jonathan if it'd be okay if I featured Jade. He agreed and provided the information about Jade. I sketched her.
I think this was the precursor to the podcast - the step in the direction to embracing my love of animals and our connection to them.
When I decided to start the podcast...
I used the image of Jade as the avatar for it.
I put a headset on her (which in hindsight was a little too on-the-nose).
After producing it for awhile, I wanted to refresh things - so it made sense to ask Jonathan if he'd be game to design something. [SIDEBAR: He's super talented at design].
Again, he agreed.
As a part for he design process, we chatted on the phone a couple of times.
Jonathan asked me if Pet Sounds was a character how would I describe it.
- loves animals
He took away my thoughts and came back with these ideas.
Zeroing in on the idea of the sounds that pets actually make.
We chatted again and firmed up a few concepts and he delivered a design that beautifully captures the podcast.
