What's your vision?
I need a new icon for an existing iPhone app: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/dolch-sight-words-learn-to/id373224253?mt=8. The App Store listing includes screenshots for the app's main screens. The user interface is going to be re-designed, so there is no need for the icon to share specific thematic elements (colors, images, etc.) with the current user interface. A few promo codes are available (request via pm). The app allows children to practice reading sight words. It can be viewed as a replacement for traditional flash cards. Its main features are: * Includes all Dolch sight words divided into 7 groups * Includes spoken pronunciation for each words * Allows users to create their own words and record pronunciations for them I do not have specific ideas yet for what the icon should look like or what elements it should contain. DESIGN GOALS AND NOTES * The iTunes icon (512 x 512) is the most important. I need something appealing enough to stand out among the results when users search for "sight words" on the App Store. * Users seem to like the app because it has a simple, relatively clean interface without a lot of distractions like cartoon characters, busy backgrounds, etc. The icon should convey this. * An important feature is that users can enter their own words and record pronunciations for them. Ideally, I'd like the icon to convey this functionality. * App users will be children age 4 - 8. App buyers will be parents and teachers (mostly parents). User feedback indicates most buyers are female. * Obviously, a goal of the app is to help children succeed and become good readers, so elements related to that might be appropriate.
