Today, I met with my designer to finish the tech pack and prepare the backpack so that it can be sent off to the manufacturer for sampling. Generally, a tech pack is a set of instructions for the manufacturer on how to make specific products. My designer helped me bring my concepts and ideas to life in my tech pack in a way that I haven’t been able to do on my own. His expertise with Adobe In Design and just general ability to draw out my ideas has shown me the power of the often quoted statement “Do what you do best and hire out the rest.” I’ve included a sneak peek into the backpack below. As you can see, every detail in the design is laid out clearly in the tech pack. Please let me know what you think!
On to my work with the podcast. I have spent nearly three days trying to upload my first podcast. I have run into error after error. My latest error reads, “Podcast cover art must be between 1400 x 1400 and 3000 x 3000 pixels, JPG or PNG in RB color space, and hosted on a server that allows HTTP head requests.” My cover art meets all of the aforementioned requirements as can be seen below. Additionally, I have run my feed through the http://feedvalidator.org, which verifies that I have a valid feed. I have looked at various websites to try and figure out if there is something else that I’m missing, but I am not getting anywhere. This is really starting to get frustrating. Do any of you know someone with experience in posting podcasts that could help me resolve this issue? If you do please email me at Joseph@thebretoncompany.com.
