Alex went above and beyond to produce examples of what we were trying to visualize, including producing extra creatives at every turn. He was very easy to work with, and we are very happy with the result, which definitely surprised us by how much better it was than we thought we'd be able to create. Thumbs up!
How TendersLounge started their button or icon journey
Mobile Goalie is a news app for hockey goalies. It streams goalie-focused news stories and tweets. The app is very much about goalies staying connected to their heroes and their craft, even when they're not playing themselves.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Target audience = hockey goalies. Boys, girls, men, women, young, old, all over the world. They are very passionate about their sport, hockey, but even more passionate about their position, goalie.
This logo/icon/button will represent the Mobile Goalie app in the iTunes and Android Marketplace stores. It needs to convey that this app is about:
- hockey goalies
The app is designed but there is no website yet, so I'm flexible on color and branding. I want it to be noticeable in both app stores when a user does a search for "goalie" or "sports" but i don't want it to be too flashy.
I have one idea in my head but I'm open to all ideas. If you go to http://www.tenderslounge.com (my site) you'll see a silhouette of a goalie in the top right corner. One idea I'd love to see is a similar silhouette of a goalie, resting, but looking at his phone at the same time. So he's checking out goalie news while he's playing. But like I said, I'm open to any ideas that convey "goalie" and "mobile" in one image, including just text.
I know it's a small button so there's not a lot of room to be creative or use a large image. I understand this issue in reviewing submissions.
