What's your vision?
We are building an alarm clock application and we need it to reflect your practical creativity! We only need one screen designed - the main screen. This screen displays the time, date and weather (see attached screenshots). It should be simple and elegant, something someone would like to look at as a nightstand clock - large numbers for the time/date, etc... We already have weather icons, so one is attached here for inclusion in your designs. Attached is an image of the working prototype, please include all elements in the prototype image in your design, but feel free to experiment with placement, size, additional graphical elements, etc. We are looking for something simple and beautiful. Not too many colors, but subtle elegance is best. We need portrait and landscape designs. The 50px space at the bottom of the prototype designs is to be left open for ads or buttons. Any images and backgrounds should be included at original and 2x resolutions in .png format. Also, and this is important, any alphanumerics (date, time, temp, etc) should be in a TTF font (with font file.. ie.. exampleFont.ttf) with creative commons license that we can include in the application. This will be translated into multiple languages so no images with text. All text and numbers should be in a specified font with font files included as a deliverable. We should be able to recreate your design exactly from font files and included graphics. We are looking for practical creativity!
There is a chance for good exposure here as some of apps have had great success. Please see the following links for our other apps. http://itunes.apple.com/app/twitterstream-hd/id459906695?ls=1&mt=8 http://itunes.apple.com/app/secret-life/id480837298?ls=1&mt=8 Also, here are some apps that capture simple elegance, were not suggesting an LCD font/interface, but if it really works, its a valid concept! http://dailyiphoneblog.com/2011/11/27/touch-lcd-designer-speaking-clock-free-app-of-the-day/ http://dailyiphoneblog.com/2010/09/12/iphone-app-lcd-clock-clock-calendar/

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their app.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Matt90128 collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
