We need an eye catching icon for our app. The app already has an icon, but it is very simple and we're looking for a refresh.
The app itself is concerned with helping mothers to monitor all aspects of their newborn baby. Mothers use it to record their babies feeding times (left breast, right breast and bottle feeds). The app also has a number of secondary "reporting" features.
The primary design of the icon should have a cute BABY together with a BOTTLE. A secondary aspect to the icon will be some indication of a REPORT. The baby and bottle are the key aspects of the design, and both should be largely prominent on the icon. One fun idea might see the bottle actually the same size or BIGGER than the baby with the baby playfully drinking or hugging the bottle. But we are open to your imagination in how the baby should be interacting with the bottle
Do feel free to give the baby more HAIR, in a style that shows abit of attitude (lets go with spiky unless you can come up with a better looking style). The baby should have about HALF its head taken up by hair (I suppose this depends on your baby, but we‚Äôre trying to suggest that there should be more than just a 'tuft' of hair)
We would like the color scheme to be quite happy and bright. We'd like the general color theme of the icon to be a BRIGHT, GLOSSY NAVY BLUE, with the other colors working with that underlying color scheme.
Another point is that we would like the icon to have some "depth". We've attached some examples of icons which use a border that is raised above the main image area. The border casts a small shadow onto the main image area, thus giving "depth" to the icon. Often the border is shiny/glossy in some way. That is what we're after.
Three minor additional points:
1. We would also like a version of the icon for a "Lite" app.... The icon is EXACTLY the same, except with a red banner across the TOP-LEFT corner of the icon with the words "Lite" on it.
2. A single image of the baby with whatever else is attached to it. This will be the exact same image of the baby that you use for the icon, just without the icon.
3. The winning designer should provide us with the original source files of whatever application was used to create the logo in. So, in the case of photoshop, we'd expect the source PSD files. etc. etc. etc...
