How traversient started their button or icon journey

Company name

Pixellent

Overview

We're a small indie start-up submitting our first app to the Apple Appstore. Mainly we're very developers with bright ideas and work on the core app development, but we constantly feel the need for cool graphics and art to best show off our apps, and entice a large audience.

We like to think that we're really cool guys, and although we know nothing of the making of good artwork / graphic design, we are really discerning and really appreciate great work! :)

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

The audience is the geeks, techies and generally people who love to check out (and talk about) new and cool apps on the AppStore. The audience is very discerning - they know the good stuff from the run-of-the-mill.

Audience is web-savvy, and already knows how to efficiently search for what they're looking for.

Requirements

We're looking for an app icon for our Universal app for iOS. The app is called "Pixellent" - it's an excellent way to search for images on the Internet. It shows images results from various web services and social networks and has built in thumbnail and slideshows.

Conceptually we are thinking of an icon that signifies to the user:

1. Search - User must identify that it's a search app, one of the ideas is to have a magnifying glass for this
2. Web / Net / Global - One of the ideas is to have a Earth Globe
3. Something that says "Pictures" - One of the ideas is to have a picture frame.

PLEASE be open and creative with concepts and ideas, above are our simple ideas, we're just developers with no creativity / imagination at all! :)

The most vibrant, and eye-catching design will be chosen.

Icon must be simple / easily identifiable. The most important thing is to have "rememberability" - the user must identify, and remember the icon.

Secondly, it has to grab the initial user's attention - when they are browsing through the gazillion apps that are available for purchase, our app must stand out!

FINAL delivery MUST include all the following sizes in square PNG, corner curve cutting will be done by AppStore. Source PSD / AI / whatever you use should be included:

512x512
57x57
114x114
72x72
29x29
50x50
58x58
