I would like an icon for an iOS app. Here are the details of my request:
• The app will be a store and a reading app of gamebooks which are books where the reader controls its own adventure by choosing different paths. Adventures will take place in many different universes (zombies, horror, science fiction, mid-ages, contemporary, love stories, action stories…)
• Therefore the main ideas that should be displaced on the icon should be the idea of book, reading, adventure, different universes… Power of reading and power of the reader to put it in a nutshell.
• The icon should respect Apple icon dimensions and should be clean and clear on each size (1024x1024, 512x512 … down to 57x57) and readapted if not as you must be familiar to.
• The file should be designed on Photoshop or illustrator so that layers can be reused or animated after.
Concerning the icon content and elements, the icon1 in the files should be your main inspiration. A book, hands to show the interactivity of the reader and a global mood of power in general. In order not to copy this icon, maybe it would be a good idea to change the point of view of the reader. Maybe show the book standing and not lying and the hands coming from the sides from the reader’s point of view. However I don’t like the hand-drawn aspect of this icon1 logo. I’m expecting something more detailed and more clean such as icon 2 and icon 3. Other details should be added to give to this icon the idea of power. However it should not be childish. It should be clean. Finally, I would like to have some frame from which some of the icon content stands out to give a 3D effect like partially shown on icon 4.
I'm more expecting quality than deadlines. 2 weeks should be enough I believe. Please show me your portfolio concerning app icons to help me select the freelancer.
