One of the designers who made it happen

Winner - BLACKSHEEP
Great understanding of the brief and our demands, as well as a creative view where the brief is a possibility rather than a limitation. Blacksheep has contributed with new and fresh eyes to our business, which was the whole idea why we chose to arrange the contest.

How si started their button or icon journey

Company name

Seeing Interactive

Overview

We ( http://seeinginteractive.com ) work with newspapers to launch local business directories in their towns and cities. The newspapers work with small businesses to help get them on the web and we provide the technology to make it happen.

This icon set will be used on millions of websites to help users know if they are looking at a plumber or a lawyer.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

This icon set will be apart of a massive redesign. Our old product looked like this: http://searchthetristate.com/

If you click on the "show categories" link in the top right you'll see that we were using the http://iconza.com/ icon pack.

The new design is attached and labeled as "new_design.jpg". While we liked the iconza pack, it was not specific enough for our needs. That's where you come in!

Requirements

We want a total of 40 icons representing various business categories.

Since that would be a ridiculous amount of work, we're only asking for 4-6 icons as examples here. Once we like your 4-6, we'll have you build out the rest for payment.

We are very specific and fast to comment. If you post a design we will comment on it within hours.

We need 37 matching business icons for:

Services
Beauty & Wellness
Communication (Media, TV, Newspapers, Advertising)
Vehicles
Real Estate
Community
Travel
House and Home
Jobs
Finance
Shopping
Dining
Entertainment
Medical
Fitness
Salons and Spas
Church
Kids
Sports
Banks
Bars
Electronics
Home Improvement
Plumbing
Agriculture
Computers (sales, repair, service)
Jewelry
Legal
Mortuaries
Taxes and Accounting
Clothing
Florists
Music
Office Supply
Hotels
Auto Repair
Other (almost a blank icon for any business)

And 3 General icons that match the others:
Search Icon
Phone icon
Directions icon

If we like your work, we'll probably hire you to fill out the set later on (we have 170 total categories).

Here are the styles we like:

http://www.fotolia.com/id/16529550

But more simplistic is probably more realistic for the volume of icons we need: http://www.fotolia.com/id/14514932

Final icons will be 24x24 to 64x64 in size, but we will require the vector art and all rights to use the icons.
