Rab492 got their new icon or button by running a design contest:
Looking for an intuitive App Design for "In The Loop" (Communication app)
Check out Rab492's Icon or button contest…
Thank-you for showing interest in my contest! I'm excited to see your creativity & this idea come to life. You know when people say, "Okay, keep me in the loop!" Meaning, keep communicating to me? Well, the name of the app is "In The Loop". It is a mobile app that allows sports coaches to safely communicate with their athletes & the parents of the athletes quickly therefore keeping everyone "In The Loop". The social aspect of the app is very important as the app allows for coaches to push their messages to twitter & facebook as well as within the app itself through push-notifications. You will have free range on this project but don't worry because I give A LOT of feedback! When I run contests I never seem to log out of 99designs. So if you feel that there isn't much direction in the description below, still submit a design because we'll work off of that. We do not have a website yet so this Icon is very important because it will set the stage for all other design pieces that will follow. This is just Step 1. As such, there will be more work that will follow since we are at start-up! The target audience are Coaches (ages 18 - 40), athletes (95% girls ages 12-19), and parents (ages 30-50)
What's your vision?
I'm looking for designs of a ICON and a SPLASH SCREEN of "In The Loop". The icon and splash screen together should convey to the users the following: 1. What the app is about = Social Communication 2. The use of a "loop" 3. Easy and fun to use The icon as a whole should be intuitive and stand out on the iPhone home screen. So the use of background colors OTHER THAN BLUE (red, green, purple) is important. Using the full name - "In The Loop" should NOT be an option. - 1st attachment (blue with the people inside) is an icon that I found on Pintrest that I really really like! If you could incorporate something like that, with a loop or circle, I could see that potentially working. What I like about this icon is that: - it shows a group of people - the people icons are slightly different than normal icons - The 2nd attachment contains other app icons that I like. - The 3rd attachment contains some examples of loops that our logo MAY be based on. You can maybe use some of those types of ideas to incorporate instead of the generic "chat bubble" - The 4th attachment is a color palette that I would like to see used as backgrounds for the designs. I know blue seems to be a popular color, but I would like to see some options in the colors within the attachment. You'll also see a couple of random app icons. I added those because I like the color/gradient and slight texture of the app. I'd like to see that incorporated if possible.
Attached is an attempt that I did a long time ago for a class project. Please do not copy this but you can see what my brain was thinking. PLEASE STEP OUT OF THE BOX! I would stay away from arrows in the shape of a circle. We're looking for excellent designers with experience designing icons for the mobile devices by following Apple's Human Interface Guidelines. When possible, please submit high-resolution images using the (free) Photoshop document "App Icon Template" for iOS 7: http://appicontemplate.com/ios7 In handover phase, we'll need layered .PSD files in the standard Apple-required sizes. https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/UserExperience/Conceptual/MobileHIG/IconMatrix.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40006556-CH27-SW1 If you have experience in this matter and think other sizes will be helpful, we appreciate that. Thank you for your time, energy, and creativity!
