    We have just decided the contest winner.
    I'd like to congratulate the winner and I really appreciate everyone for joining the contest.

    With many exceptional proposals, it was very difficult to choose only 1 winner.
    Therefore we also decided to purchase designs from several contestants additionally, in order to use them in future versions, web sites, similar but different products, and/or documentations.
    However, we can't afford awarding the full prize to several persons, and have sent them a PM about our offer details.

    Thanks again for your effort and time!

    Hi,
    #80 is basic globe which will be used in all icons i used orange color for globe because it is basic application using color and sub application may have different colors as functions etc candle stick line is heavy this time.

    Hello sir, you should definitely seal this contest. Unfortunately there are people who love to troll unsealed contests and blatantly steal other peoples ideas. Unsealed contests thus tend to keep good designers at bay.

    I have slightly edited "Further requirements" in the project detail.
    Please keep in mind that:
    - This project is about a product called "Forex Studio"
    - The product consists of 4 different apps
    - Each app must have a different icon
    - But you can't just design 4 totally irrelevant icons. They must have something in common, because they belong to the same product

    This is why I've been asking you to include "app part" and "common part" in your design.
    Please refer to 2 images (attached in the project detail). They may describe well what is the app part and the common part I'm talking about.

      I assume the square object is the "console" app part, without the common part.
      On such assumption, I like the first one of #4 #5 (any difference between them?) and #7
      The reason is:
      - Black one may look too "cool" when placed on Metropolis Light window.
      - Blue background one looks better to me than white one.
      I like the first one of #7 the most. It looks more elaborative than 2 zigzag lines but not too complicated.

      I would like to evaluate the common part as well, so please include both the app part and the common part.

      I will consider the sealed contest (you meant sealed, right?).
      If other contestants have opinions on this, I'd love to hear.

    Could you please give feedback. The amount of detail for the 16 x 16 has to be minimized is this ok ? It looks very cluttered with to much detail.

      I like the idea of a monitor showing a chart.
      Since Forex Studio is focused on fully automated trading, here's some suggestions:
      - No person is preferred.
      - Users usually don't have to watch a lot of monitors. one is sufficient.
      If one chart on one monitor looks too simple, you can place two charts. One is an ordinary price chart, and the other is a balance chart showing the user's balance on the account (in this case, increasing chart is preferred).
      Please place the icon on white background during preview.

      Since application names are subject to change (only the whole product name is fixed), non-letter object should be used to represent each application. My apology for not mentioning it in the project detail.

      I like the color and impression it gives, though.

      Its ok, I see what you mean now. I read over the "S" part too fast and assumed that the first letter of each app would work.

    You can use different base colors for each icon, like Console = blue, Sync = red, and so on.
    In this case, common part can also have different colors, as long as the shape is the same.

    Hi Contest Holder,
    Are there any icons used within the application to keep the mother icon similar to them ?

    Wish you very best of your job results.

      No, S or F is only a suggestion and not essential.
      Icons just need to have "something" in common, and it should represents the whole product.
      If you have other proposal than S or F, that's totally fine and I'm more than willing to see it.
