Project Description:
I have an existing iOS app that I have written that functionally works correctly and is useful, however the artwork in the application is of a low quality and makes the application unattractive to customers.


The application is called 'Sunrise Addict'. It can be seen via http://itunes.apple.com/au/app/sunrise-addict/id414194259?mt=8 Note that there is absolutely no need for you to purchase the application to see the functionality, all the application functionality can be seen in the screenshots in the iTunes store, and some larger images can be seen at http://www.petesmith.co.nz/sunriseaddict.html


Two pieces of artwork design and delivery are required - as follows:


1) Build a new icon graphic for the 'Sunrise Addict' application.
2) Application background artwork.


I have put more detailed descriptions of the work required below.

Please include samples of your previous work when bidding so I have something to go on. When delivering I would like to see the work before payment (I hope this isn't unreasonable) so please deliver watermarked or otherwise obfuscated in some other way so I can see what is to be delivered and I can comment appropriately.


The audience for this application I think is mid-20's years old upwards.


It shouldn't use any copyrighted material or be copied from elsewhere!!


I envisage that some sort of sun in a blue sky motif is probably appropriate, but I am open to suggestion. I want a 'positive, uplifting' feel to the app.


Thank you very much for reading and for submitting a bid.







## Deliverables

I have an existing iOS app that I have written that functionally works correctly and is useful, however the artwork in the application is of a low quality and makes the application unattractive to customers.




The application is called 'Sunrise Addict'. It can be seen via http://itunes.apple.com/au/app/sunrise-addict/id414194259?mt=8 Note that there is absolutely no need for you to purchase the application to see the functionality, all the application functionality can be seen in the screenshots in the iTunes store, and some larger images can be seen at http://www.petesmith.co.nz/sunriseaddict.html


Two pieces of artwork design and delivery are required - as follows:


1) Build a new icon graphic for the 'Sunrise Addict' application. The icon graphic is the one that is displayed in the app store as well as the one displayed in the iPhone interface. The goal here is to have an icon that catches the potential purchasers eye in the iPhone app store so that makes it distinctive so they click through to see the application and are more likely to purchase it. It is well known that the quality of the application icon as it appears in the app store is a major influence when purchasing the product.


The purpose of the application is to display the amount of time remaining until first light, sunrise, sunset or last light (twilight) for that day for the users position on the planet. It displays the amount of sunlight in that day, or the length of the night as appropriate. It also displays the amount of time until the next solstice and equinox.


The new icon must look professionally produced, fresh, and represent well the application I have described above. It should stand out amongst the other applications of the same type (do a search for sunrise or sunset). It must catch the users eye and represent the application within as professional.


iOS icons must be delivered in a number of sizes. The icon should be delivered in the following sizes and file types:


512 pixel x 512 pixel png, jpg or tiff
114 pixel x 114 pixel png
72 pixel x 72 pixel png
58 pixel x 58 pixel png
57 pixel x 57 pixel png
50 pixel x 50 pixel png
29 pixel x 29 pixel png


For the above 72ppi, RGB, flattened, no transparency. 24 bit png image file format for all images smaller than 512 pixel. High quality JPEG, TIFF or 24 bit PNG image file for 512 pixel image.

2) Application background artwork.


The iPhone application itself contains a number of NSLabel fields superimposed on a photograph of a sunset. Whilst this works well, the blanket use of the background sunset image looks primitive, and I think it is quite gloomy. I would rather not move away from the use of NSLabel fields superimposed on the background, but I believe modernisation of the background image is appropriate.


I would like a new background image for the application. It should tie in thematically with the icon graphic produced in part one, and I like the idea of a sun in a blue sky motif. It is important that the text in the existing Label fields contrasts with the background graphic so that the label text can be read. I can change the text color of the label text if you recommend it so contrast can be achieved.


The new background graphic must look professionally produced, fresh, and represent well the application I have described above. It should stand out amongst the other applications of the same type (do a search for sunrise or sunset). It must catch the users eye and represent the application as professional.


Ideally I would like a slightly different version of the image for each tab, with some difference between them, but still the same basic image.


The image can be png or jpg, so long as I can use it in the app. Two versions of each image supplied should be delivered, one for the normal iphones and one for the retina iphones named appropriately. I'm not sure of the exact dimensions of the images required here, but the app has a standard title bar and a standard tab bar at the bottom displayed at all times.
