We're developing an iPhone app that will be used by people to perform a barcode scan of a product while in-store and then receive a deal (coupon) for the product. The deal could be, for example, "10% off if you buy in the next 30min".
We need an icon that will appear in app store listings as well as serve as the launch icon on the phone. The graphic used for the icon will then need to be incorporated into a splash page graphic.
Some ideas that we've kicked around are ... a mobile phone with a "Deal" tag attached to it ... like the classic "tag sale" image. You can try this concept or offer another!
One factor to keep in mind is that the deals presented will always be time-limited. In other words, they'll expire within say 30minutes or less. That may be something to consider in the design, but is not absolutely required.
Splash page: The icon needs to be incorporated into the app splash page. This would just be a larger version of the icon that looks good on a single color backdrop. Color choice is yours.
-Icon must look great at both low (57x57) and high (512x512) resolutions
-Splash page graphic needs to be 320x480,
-Not too busy- simple and bold colors are key to sticking out among lots of other icons on ones phone
-Delivered in .PNG format
-Layered .PSD/.AI files must also be provided
