i'm a startup co.
trying the iOS market.
i need an iPad app icon please.
for a Quotation app.
thanks for your interest.
anyone who likes quotes or quotations (as in saying, proverbs etc. not stock quotes or job quotes : )
so it can be any age audience, any culture. young to old should be able to recognize symbol.
- sensual, emotional, vibrational, sexy (in abstract way : )
- light, friendly, joyful, deliciously edible, inspiring!
- naturally elegant, simple but sophisticated
- see attached competition. icons are ugly in all senses, color, symbol, layout etc. just added file so you do not waste your time in wrong direction : )
please use your creativity to be different.
- relate icon to quotes, what people say
- don't just take it literal i.e. with quotation symbol, be original, maybe use mouth as symbol...
- make icon simple enough to be instantly recognizable and relatable to quotes
- create enough detail to intrigue if icon is use in print or blown up, so it does not look too bland
- make simplified version for small size and in-app user interface logo
- slick but organic (not stiff, maybe newage-y is fine : )
- visually stunning, different
- use shadows
- more glassy than metallic
- as colorful as you wish (colors evoke emotion well...)
final output should be for app icon but also print.
after all your hard work on icon, imagine if need to blow it up: i can't get back to you, so please design right from start, in hi-res. you can do comps in low res for speed, but if chosen for final design, please create full res.
winning final format:
- vector (ai or freehand)
- plus layered psd, 300 dpi, min. 6000 pixels
- no clip art / all original
if i love your work, there's more!
