We need an icon for the square that appears on the home-screen of our users' phones. We are a polling social media app looking for a creative, intuitive and out of the box design. We ask that any designers participating download the app in order to get a feel for our aesthetic.
Attached is the doc with all the app icon possibilities. We put an outline around any that were our favorites.
On page 9 is a summary of our favorite scales and a few bullets to guide designers. Our palette of colors is:
Bestest Blue (BB) = #2C8FD2
We ask that designers stay away from the following symbols or looks:
- Anything that may look like or be construed as a cross or any other religious symbol
- Anything that may look like or be construed as a negative symbol from history
- Anything that may look like a sad face or construe a negative idea of the brand (although making the design kinda look like a face is totally cool)
We really like the idea of a tilted scale due to the nature of our app and we ask you work with the tilted scale idea (unless you have some sort of breakthrough that is better than the scale; then by all means go away from the scale.)
Lastly have fun and get really creative. Thanks!
