Existing popular Android app needs a new launcher icon designing. We are Software Engineers not designers so need someone to do the design for us.
The icon can be built in any package but must be delivered in .PNG (minimised as best as possible) format at the following sizes:
512x512, 72x72, 48x48, 36x36
All icon file sizes must be less than 1024k
It must also meet all of the criteria and suggestions for an Android 2.0 launcher icon. Guidance published here:
Details of the app can be found here:
Whilst we are looking for an icon that meets the Android criteria, we do not like "cartoons". The icon should convey a professional approach.
Some examples of "cartoon" icons we don't like:
A couple we do like (especially the first):
To be considered for the project you must evidence your icon design abilities by either:
1) Having a portfolio of app icons (for any device i.e. iPhone, Android...)
2) Sending us a sample of what you intend to create (you may watermark it/make it unusable in any way you see fit)
Basically we would like to know that your "style" is what we are looking for before commissioning.
This company is moving into cross platform apps full-time so further work could be a possibility.
The icon can look any way you like. Use your artistic abilities, but please bear in mind that the message we are looking to convey is "professional", not "revolutionary" or "odd ball"
