      Thank you for this! I had no idea. I thought it was a little surprising seeing his other designs but I didn't think he would cheat.

      I don't want to accidentally infringe on a university's copyright, or tie it down to one university so I've tried to stay away from getting too specific with universities. If you're still interested in trying it out, go for it! I won't say no to seeing what you bring :D

      Sure thing, no problem.
      - I think you did a good job of creating the map and identifying the theme.
      - I would recommend that generally the dotted lines on a map go the other way (length wise leading to the treasure or X).
      - I would recommend making the title a LOT lighter, to increase the contrast heavily. This will make the title more visible and draw more attention to it You can also do this by making the border/stroke of the title very light, to make it "pop" more as the term is called.
      - I think in general the meshing of the overall concept could use a little reworking (with the telescope coming out of the compass for example, or the dark text on dark background). It could be useful to put the text off of the map if you don't want to change the color of it.

      Thank you for your submission!

      I think I like the top right one the most out of these.
      Feedback:
      - The idea of putting the pin on the map is fantastic, because the app puts a pin on the map.
      - I'd love to see where you play around with the theme of the pin.
      - I don't particularly like splitting the name. and I figured out the thing about the word maps.
      - Maybe putting the word maps directly underneath campus would help the word "map" be more visible, with the actual map underneath the words?

      I think this is an interesting theme! I like how the map could be taken for a college campus map. The fundamentals are solid, but it doesn't catch my attention like some of the other ideas you've had. Could I see it without the compass? I think just the red X and trail might work well for this piece!

    Keep in mind it doesn't have to be a Pirate Map, #23 came out of no where and really aced it! Feel free to be creative guys, those were mainly suggestions to get the creativity started. I thought it might be easier if there was a suggested theme. I look forward to what else you guys bring to the contest!

      Thank you! Some thoughts:
      - Please include an "S" at the end of Map (Campus Maps)
      - If you could display it off of the phone as well as beside it that would be fantastic, I got a little distracted.
      - Maybe a little less emphasis on the compass and coins, and more on the map or maybe the perspective on the phone is throwing me off. I think I can give better feedback seeing it standalone. #13 has a brilliant format.

      Thank you for your effort! I think the use of blur might be a little difficult to draw attention to one part, especially with the slanted text I felt a little disoriented. I'm primarily looking for more of a standard iconish, artish kind of style. Thanks for trying out a new style though, it's definitely something I haven't seen before.

      Sweet! This is totally creative and I really like it!
      Thoughts:
      - I think the word maps might be a little hard to read, maybe taking it off of the map or highlighting it some how would be good?
      - I like the font choice, and the word "campus" and the map itself is very easy to identify. Very distinctive icon, and feels very playful. I think your creativity paid off.

      I like the originality behind this piece. You are on the right track, I would like to emphasize the app title and the path a little more (a treasure chest is fine, that was a great creative approach!). I like how the tree comes off of the map, it adds a nice touch. I don't think the compass is necessary or maybe swap how much the amount that compass and the dotted line/title stand out - I feel like the compass stands out a lot in comparison to the title and treasure chest/dotted line.

      Thanks for your effort! I like the readability of your design. A thought is that maybe moving away from the skull and bones could be interesting? Maybe something like a ship or compass, or even a star! Feel free to explore creatively :)

    I would like to emphasize that the title and the path are what I consider the two most eye-catching aspects - the title and path/ X spot should be easily visible from the thumbnail (don't be afraid to make the title 25-30% of the graphic). Marijoing is on the right path with submission #8 on how to make the title stand out in relation to the graphic. johnvjs is on the right path with the map styles (For example, #5).

    Keep in mind that this is basically an advertisement for the app.
    - The name is important and should stand out
    - I refer to the path and X a lot because they portray what it does, basically the app gets people to their location. Feel free to portray this however you want, but this was just what came to my mind. I think it is important that the functionality of the app stand out somehow, by depicting the path with emphasis or whatever creative way you come up with!

    I have submitted my design for Campus Maps. In many applications and websites in general, logos are simple and contain a recognizable but low-key text of the company name, and occasionally an emblem to highlight the purpose of the company and give it identity. The graphic submitted by myself captures the essence of all of the above.

    The image I have created is completely original, with no stock art used. I can crop it to any dimensions or sizes, as well as change the ratio of the logo to empty space, for example a standard iPhone screen size for a loading page, an overhead banner as an in-app logo, and an app icon size. Also available as an option is the addition of your slogan/tag line, however for an iTunes art I have omitted it.

    The Campus Maps idea is wonderful, and I look forward to showing you more of my expertise and working with you to tweak and perfect your company's identity.

      Thank you for your submission, I appreciate your time. This is definitely a creative approach to the project spec. I would strongly prefer if the icon contained a map. I look forward to any other ideas you have!
