We will be providing testimonials for the top 5 finalists.
We will request contact info of the top 5 finalists for future work as we have a bunch of other design work needed down the road and hopefully in the next year will be in the market for a lead designer position. We are also willing to provide recommendations to other startups within our network.
We will be very attentive providing feedback and will let you know where your design ranks to respect your time and give you the option of ceasing participation.
Plagiarized, stock image designs, etc. will be reported. Please respect ours and other designers' time who are working to submit original, quality work by not hindering their chances (Thank you in advance!).
Be creative because an artist unchained beats any loose guidelines we think might lead to something good.
These are just generally good app icons (Monument Valley, Instagram, Wunderlist, Evernote, Pocket, Netbot, The cartographer, Flipboard, Vine, Google Chrome, Super)
Iconic brand feel/defined object. For Example: Tinder, Snapchat, Jelly, Twitter, Hangouts
Two solid colors (blue/white, purple/white, etc.)
Has character/not generic
If you think of something really good, ignore this list, just trying to be helpful for a starting point:
Use the name as the design (lyft)
Entire app logo is an object (Instagram, 1Password)
Cartoony/childish (PBS KIDS Video, Raz-Kids, Caption Share)
Gimmiky looking (RepostWhiz, Zedge, Photos Editor)
Extremely ambiguous (BitTorrent Bleep, Nexstate)
Busy (Bubble Witch Saga 2)
Overly abstract (Hinge)
One possibly cool design would be a hornduck like in Alice in Wonderland (DO NOT PLAGIARIZE! Be original)
