Contest Brief

We need a number of similarly designed icons, which symbolize different video encoding presets. A video transcoding preset is a video encoding configuration for a particular target device and encompasses a resolution (e.g., 1080p, 360p), an aspect ratio (e.g., 4:3, 16:9), etc. The task is to design icons for the following presets:

- 4K (aka Ultra-HD)
- 1080p (aka HD1080 aka full HD)
- 720p (aka HD720 aka HD ready)
- 480p 16:9
- 480p 4:3
- 360p 16:9
- 360p 4:3
- 320x240
- Web preset (for video streaming platforms like YouTube etc.)
- Low-resolution smartphone preset
- Standard smartphone preset
- High-resolution smartphone preset
- Highest-resolution smartphone preset

The icons should be simplistic but elegant (see attached image for an idea of what it could look like) and use few colours. There should be two images for each preset with grey (#727272) and light blue (#0086D0) as the dominant (or only) colors. Background portions of the icons should be transparent. The icons should come as vector graphics or pixel graphics in different resolutions, using standard formats (e.g., Adobe formats or Web formats like png).

When designing the icons, use abstract symbols and make sure not to violate any trademarks.

Here is an example of what style I would like the icons could be: [url removed, login to view]

    Hey would like to participate. Please seal the designs, even if you do not gurantee it, atleast seal entries so they don't get copied off, specially since you also prefer minimalistic flat designs. [Like the references you've shared]

    I would generally prefer a design with rectangular shapes (when using curves, please use small radiuses). And second, I would prefer designs where only the shape boundary and the text is (identically) coloured, the fill colour should be transparent. The icons do not have to (but can) depict the preset name. If you find an alternative way to symbolise the presets graphically, this would be very much appreciated.

    An example of good icon design is this: http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/examples/#larger - simplistic and monochromatic. This shouldn't constrain you in your creativity, but merely point to one possible design language.

      Good first submission. However, I do not want 3D effects (shadows, glosses, etc.) on the icons.
