KarinaA created a great design and was excellent to work with both before and after she won our contest. Her attention to detail and excellent communication was outstanding. Thanks!
For us it was a real pleasure to work with someone as precise and fast as Gelsan.
We recommend it without hesitation, he has always responded to our requests.
We will not hesitate to recontact him for new work.

We have an Acrostics puzzle application for Android and iOS called "Acrostics" and we need an icon that will show prominently in app stores. This will replace our existing icon, attached. We want to remove the “head” part of our existing icon, but are ok with the existing background.
The winning design will instantly convey that this is an Acrostics word puzzle app with a bold catchy design that evokes the crossword style clues and answer grid layout. It must be playful and hip and modern and grab the eye amidst the many competing covers that will be displayed on the same screen.
Older people: 40-80, mostly women. These people are typically heavy readers and thus quite literate. It needs to feel polished, classic and not amateurish. They’re used to finding these puzzles in newspapers and magazines.
The project is to design a square 1024x1024 png image that will be the app icon in the store and also at a much reduced size on the device. BUT, this final piece is used in many sizes. It should look excellent down to 200x200 and great at 114x114. We’ll be using http://testico.net/ to see how the icon looks in context and comparing it to the existing icon. Often the corners are rounded in the stores when displayed.
The final art should be at 1024x1024 resolution png in full color, as well as the usual set of icons sizes required for iOS and Android (exact details will be supplied if needed).
